Vanara is forced by Duinnor to participate in an ambitious invasion of the Dragonlands. Six armies, comprised of Elifaen and Men primarily from Vanara and Duinnor, but also composed of units from the other Realms, cross the southern mountains and march on the Green Citadel. It will be the first of two bloody campaigns against the city, which is believed to be the base from which the Dragonkind have attacked the north. After the city is sacked by northern forces, they are harried on their retreat. In the north, the retreat would come to be called the Road of Dry Blood. Among its casualties is Dalvenpar Tallin.
Gurasa, who has become a great and powerful general of the Dragonkind, is made scapegoat for the disaster and he is put on trial for his failure to prevent the sacking of the Green Citadel. The trial will last for almost two years, during which time Gurasa is forced to remain in Tyrsharat.
