The first installment of a new series introduces the fated Land of Dhrall, which is shared by the gods with its people and is overshadowed by Wasteland ruler Vlagh, who plans to take advantage of a shift in power and eventually take over the world unless four children are able to counter his intentions. 150,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
Somewhere beyond the farthest pole of the world, the Land of Dhrall lies anchored by the will of four powerful yet eccentric Gods. From controlling the weather to influencing the course of mortal men, these deities can bend reality to their whims. But bound by the laws of nature, they cannot take lives.
Yet the Gods are not the only power. For in the center of Dhrall is the Wasteland, the domain of a mysterious, voracious horror known as That-Called-the-Vlagh. A nightmare made flesh, the Vlagh has created a massive army of hideous monsters in a plan to conquer Dhrall and overrun the world. And now, at the end of a cycle of Time, That-Called-the-Vlagh may succeed.
In the coming battles the people of Dhrall will be aided by a ragtag force of pirates and mercenary soldiers. But the true warriors against the Vlagh will turn out to be four enigmatic children known as the Dreamers. Raised by the Gods themselves, these children have the ability to summon dreams that can alter the fabric of reality. And unlike the Elder gods, the Dreamers do not hesitate to use their powers to kill.

This book was okay but it started out to slow for me.

I enjoyed the series of books as far as the story itself, but I have to say it is very poorly written with a lot of repetition which tends bog things down.

Awful in comparison to the Belgariad and the Mallorean, a clear plunge in the literary ability of the Eddings' team.
