Corin has discovered a map/manuscript that contains a tale of past ages and perhaps a key to his quest. Escaping the Hermitage upon the back of Darkelfari, a beautiful jet-black horse, he makes his way through the wilds in search of his elvish companions.
By ever-darkening ways and with the unexpected aid of a strange Wizard, he is reunited with the Elvish forces who are, at that time, hard-pressed by vast Goblin armies all along the coasts of the North World. When it seems all must perish, some are spared to break through to the ocean and the awaiting Elven armada. Defeated, yet unbowed, the Elves vow to regain their strength and come again, against an overwhelming foe.
Yet for Corin, there is another trial to be endured. Far away with only Darkelfari as companion; back beyond the Northern mountains, to confront The Mighty Fear, buried in the deep ice of the forbidding realm of the Ice Giants.
