The Journeyman must use the ancient Anvil of Time to travel through history. He is told to observe and not to interfere, a task that is easier said than done...
Bradok Axeblade had it all -- until his hometown of Ironroot was destroyed in the Cataclysm. Deep in the bowels of Krynn, short of food, water, and light, Bradok and a handful of survivors cling to life.
Armed only with a magic compass and an indomitable will, he leads desperate survivors through a perilous maze of ancient dangers. [from publisher's web site]
