Timeline Points:

  1. Set in Escore
  2. p118. 'They had had so difficult a time with the wise women of Estcarp…' "They" are the Old Race from Karsten who followed Kyllan into Escore after Three Against the Witch World.
  3. p123/124. Return of adept Baelialt.


Sorcerer's Note:
Since Escore seems less populated by evil, this is probably sometime after The Gate of the Cat.


The Sorcerer’s recommend that you read next: Earthborne
