Arutha, Prince of Krondor, uses an attempted assassination as a ruse to fake his own death so that he may travel north to confront Murmandamus. In his travels to the Northlands, Arutha finds his father's former enemy, Guy du Bas-Tyra, as the Protector of the city Armengar, the first location to be invaded by the dark army under Murmandamus. In an attempt to destroy a majority of the army, Guy ordered the evacuation of the city, and ignited the naphtha mines below the city. Unfortunately, Murmandamus escaped unscathed, and the army marched towards the border of the Kingdom of the Isles.

Meanwhile Pug and Tomas begin searching the world, and eventually beyond, for the famed sorcerer Macros the Black, thought killed when he helped to destroy the rift at the end of Magician. Macros then revealed that he had put into motion a grand plot to instill Tomas with the powers of the Valheru, Ashen-Shugar, in order to turn the tides of the coming battle in their favour. Murmandamus, having successfully overrun the border city of Highcastle, marched towards his final objective: the town of Sethanon, which lies above an ancient ruins containing an artifact of power known as the Lifestone.

Murmandamus lays siege to Sethanon, causing wholesale slaughter regardless of his own soldiers, in order to draw his necromantic power from their deaths. Steeped in power, he descended into the chamber of the Lifestone, and was confronted by Arutha, where they begin to duel. A rift begins to form within the chamber, held closed only by the magical efforts of Pug and Macros. Arutha manages to kill Murmandamus, revealing his true form as a Pantathian impersonating a moredhel. With his death, the escaped magical energy caused the rift to open briefly, releasing a Valheru, and a life-stealing Dreadlord. Tomas, now fully embracing his Valheru heritage, battled his ancient kin, while his dragon mount fought the Dreadlord.

At the climax of the battle, Tomas stabs his sword through his enemy, and into the Lifestone, inadvertently releasing the spirits of all other Dragonlords. Their combined might, however, was no match for the Lifestone, the nexus of all life on Midkemia. They were drawn into the Lifestone and trapped for all eternity. The invasion was over.Afterwards, Macros entrusts the guardianship of the world to Pug and Tomas, saying that his task to protect Midkemia was finished, and disappears.
