Rhapsody, a singer of great talent; Achmed, an assassin with unearthly talents; and Grunthor, the giant of jolly disposition and deadly skill with weapons-these three may be their world's only hope. But their time is running short and they must find their elusive enemy before his darkness consumes them all. The breathtaking sequel to Rhapsody. The three heroes return-they may be the world's only hope, but time is running short. They must find their elusive enemy before his darkness consumes them all. In Rhapsody, a fellowship was forged-three companions who, through great adversity, became a force to be reckoned with: Rhapsody, a singer of great talent and even greater beauty; Achmed, an assassin with unearthly talents; and Grunthor, a giant Sergeant-Major whose jolly disposition stands at odds with his deadly skill at weapons. Having fled the F'dor-an ancient, powerful evil-the three emerged on the other side of the world, only to discover fourteen centuries had passed. Their homeland had been destroyed, their people scattered across several continents, and everyone they ever knew had long since passed away-except, perhaps, the F'dor. Prophecy continues this powerful epic. Driven by a prophetic vision, Rhapsody races to rescue the religious leader of her new homeland while Achmed and Grunthor seek evidence of the F'dor. These three may be their world's only hope, the heroes spoken of in the Prophecy of the Three, but their time is running short. They must find their elusive enemy before his darkness consumes them all
