Overview

Although Queen Marta has secured the throne in Tagaret, the city is still not safe for Prince Arik. Remnants of the Council still seek to end the monarchy, and the city is riddled with agents of the Dark One. Even though it has long been expected, the march northward of the army of Lanoir sends shivers down the spines of everyone paying attention. As the forces of Abuud, Sarac, and Emperor Hanchi begin to converge on Tagaret, Prince Arik is forced to make a giant step towards his destiny to rule Alcea.
Sarac's Ravens continue to track the Alcea Rangers and battle with them becomes assured. The search for the Emerald of the Elves is complicated by an elven queen who does not wish the Ancient Prophecy to be completed, and a failure of the Sword of Heavens to locate the gem. The quest to fulfill the Ancient Prophecy becomes more dangerous than ever as the battles begin to take their toll on the Alcea Rangers.

Meanwhile, the Mage discovers the shocking truth about the Darkness, a truth so unthinkable that it makes the rule of Sarac almost desirable. Delve into an adventure that it rife with danger, magic, deceit, and betrayal.

Meet the Author

Richard S. Tuttle started writing epic fantasy in 1997 with the release of the Targa Trilogy, a short series that introduces the heroes of the Alcea Collection. In 1998, he started an ambitious project of creating two separate and distinct series. The Sword of Heavens series continued the saga of the Alcea Collection with the next generation of heroes. It consists of 7 volumes and was completed in 2003. Simultaneously, he created the Forgotten Legacy series, an unrelated 8-volume tale of magic and mystery set in a new and varied world. The Forgotten Legacy series was completed in 2004.

In 2005, Richard created a 2-volume miniseries, Complement for a King. The series chronicles a gripping tale of a world where magic has become a consuming force, and focuses on three young princes who must strive to restore equilibrium to a world gone awry.

Starting in 2006, Richard spent 4 years on a 7-volume addition to the Alcea Collection, writing the Demonstone Chronicles. The series pits a recovering Alcea against a massive mysterious enemy that the Alceans are unaware of. The Demonstone Chronicles was completed in 2009.

Richard spent all of 2010 recording the Alcea Collection and releasing it in various audio book formats.

I started with book one, and I was hooked, I bought all the books and read them from start to finish. They are well written, and yes you know that of course each book is going to be going after a gem for the sword, but the characters you meet, you fall in love with and start to root for them.
