The Elder Gods

Book One of the Dreamers
By David Eddings, Leigh Eddings (Electronic Book, 2003)
While most continents of their world float freely on the face of Mother Sea, the Land of Dhrall has existed anchored by the will of the Gods. All gods, Elder and Younger, share the people and the land of Dhrall equally, though the one place they never enter is The Wasteland, for that barren and hideous land is ruled by the Vlagh. Now, as the age of the Younger Gods comes to a close, a diabolical plan has come to light: The Vlagh plans to exploit the weakness that comes during the time of transfer of power from the Younger to the Elder Gods, with hopes to conquer Dhrall, neutralize the Gods, and then conquer the world. To do so, he is breeding an army— a terrible force of pure, efficient killing machines borne of monsters, demons, and beasts out of nightmares. Dahlaine, the leader of the Gods, has forseen the ugly future and has brought into existence what might be their only hope: four children, called the Dreamers. They hold the power to change the course of history through their dreams alone— and are the only ones with the power to stop the Vlagh in his quest for total world subjugation.
