The vastness of India holds many secrets. Some so ancient even their names are lost... With only an ancient set of cryptic directions as a guide, and the murderous Order of Icarus trying to find them, our group of adventurers must decide what to do next. If they break cover from where they have been hiding in Turkey it won’t take long before their enemies begin their pursuit. But the only map they have to follow is so ancient the world it once described may no longer exist. There can be no going back, and no shortcuts to find what they seek. Perhaps only the strange dreams and visions that visit them on the sound of distant drums can help them reach their goal. _________________________ To find out what happens, read The Ashes of Time, the third and final installment in the Flames of Time trilogy.
