THE ANNALS OF THE LAST EMISSARY
“You will bear a message to the Counsel Lords and the Mono Lord in Corundum. Say to them that the limit of their days upon the Lands of the Earth is before them. Your time on the Earth is at an end.
Before twenty-five moons grow full all five Ruinwasters will be freed. Four will wreak havoc on all the hope and beauty you hold so dear. Hear me, when Tycho Ruinwaster is found, the Blasted Flats, the Shattered Lands, and even the Ganzir will seem like a garden.
For you, Last Emissary, do not fail in your task. If you fail to deliver my message, I will only require one Ruinwaster to bring about the ruin of the Earth. One Ruinwaster alone would be enough to rend the Vaults of Corundum. Hear me now. Five days will not pass before the first is freed from the Black Earth.”
