    spellbinding sorcery fantasy

    Heir to the throne of the Isles, Prince Garric travels on a long journey to obtain the sworn allegiance to him by the local rulers any dissenters will be eliminated. Currently he and his small entourage reach First Atara ruled by local monarch King Cervoran that is until he recently died and was replaced by Prince Protas. --- Garric begins the ceremony to honor the late ruler and to affirm Protas as the new local king. However, wizardry strikes and Garric vanishes as a meteor arrives and Cervoran returns to life. While Garric struggles to survive in another realm, The Green Woman from her Fortress of Glass mounts an assault with lethal magical creatures that leaves the locals and Garric's party in jeopardy. --- The first entry in the third and final trilogy The Crown of the Isles is an exciting and spellbinding sorcery fantasy. The action-packed story line insures that Garric and his crewmates seem real though they employ or are impacted by magic. The Green Woman poses a real threat and the champion¿s vanishing adds to the feel that though this novel is part of the Lord of the Isles series THE FORTRESS OF GLASS is a brisk new look at old friends. --- Harriet Klausner

    Excellent writing, story and characters.

    Opening the series the reader meets the main characters with whom he/she will journey. I enjoy the people, feel the salt in my veins surge as the ships move from island to island, and want to sing with captain Chalcus. I have read thousands of books, many very good, but this read and this author is one of the best.
