Forgotten Realms: The Library

Return of the Archwizards

The Summoning

From the depths of the demiplane of shadow comes a new magic so mysterious it confounds even the Chosen of Mystra.

From beneath the dune seas of Anauroch escapes one of Toril's most powerful and ancient evils - the phaerimm.

From Evereska, the last elven refuge on Faerûn, comes word of invasion.

From nowhere appears a group of enigmatic sorcerers determined to destroy the phaerimm and save Evereska... for purposes known only to themselves.


The floating city of Shade escaped the fall of the mighty Empire of Netheril. The city and the powerful archwizards who rule it have been hiding in the frightening and mysterious demiplane of shadow for centuries. In The Summoning, the time has come for the floating city to return to the world of Faerûn and for the evil archwizards to begin an invasion that could enslave the present-day Forgotten Realms world!


The Siege

For Evereska, the last elven refuge on Faerûn, it's battle for survival.

For the Chosen of Mystra, it's potent rival for their goddess's dominion over magic.

For the human realms of Faerûn, it's permanent shift in the balance of power.

For the lost race of powerful archwizards, it's a flying mountain they call home.


The world-spanning schemes of Shade begin to take shape, along with a new empire in the heart of the Great Desert.

This book is the second in a series that highlights one of the most intriguing developments in the popular Forgotten Realms campaign setting: the return of powerful and mysterious villains who will affect the entire balance of power on Toril. These changes will impact future Forgotten Realms storylines, making this novel a must-have.


The Sorcerer

In the blasted ruins of Tilverton, demons stalk the shadows.

In Evereska und Cormyr, alliances crumble.

In the sun-baked desert of Anauroch, an empire of darkness is established.

In the soul of a tortured elf, the future is decided.


Tilverton is no more. Phaerimm surround Evereska. The High Ice is melting. Floods sweep through Anauroch. Elminster is still nowhere to be found. The greatest heroes of Faerun are held at bay, and a flying city has taken up permanent residence in a world on the brink of destruction.
