Overview

It began with a Mistwraith that smothered all the world in fog and dampness, and followed with a war that upended order and overthrew the rule of the High Kings. Now after five long centuries, the only power that can challenge the Mistwraith's stranglehold is split between two princes. Arithon, Master of Shadows, able to weave darkness to his will. And Lysaer, Lord of Light, is sworn to justice. Driven apart by distrust and opposing convictions, the half-brothers must master their inborn enmity and meld their powers into a unified force. Should they fail, the Mistwraith shall ensnare them in strife and bloodshed for its own ends. No single character will emerge unchanged.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Two magic-wielding half-brothers are forced to battle one another in this entertaining first volume in a series called The Wars of Light and Shadow. (Dec.)
Library Journal
Two brothers, heirs to lands and locked in a blood feud, are drawn across a dimensional portal into a world where they are hailed as the promised saviors. As Arithon, the Master of Shadows, and his half-brother Lysaer, the Lord of Light, prepare to do battle against the Mistwraith, who has for centuries cloaked the world of Athera in darkness, they face an additional battle born of their mutual distrust of each other. Although fantasy author Wurts breaks no new ground in this series opener, her elaborate and vivid world-building and complex protagonists recommend this title to fans of epic fantasy.
