Overview

"Through strength, treachery, and an unbridled lust for power, King Conrig - formerly the prince of Cathra - has united the warring island of High Blenholme under his control. But the dominion he so long coveted may be fleeting. His enemies are always on watch. Conrig's illicit magical abilities are known by too many - and his children show the same penchant for sorcery, making them unfit for the throne. More foreboding is word that his first wife, Princess Maudrayne, thought long dead by her own hand, has been seen in her father's kingdom of Tarn - and with her, a son who may be Conrig's true heir." "Then trouble comes as a thief in the night. The Trove of Darasilo - a collection of powerful moonstone sigils and the ancient texts that can unleash their devastation - vanishes from its secret crypt. If it falls into the wrong hands, Conrig's fate will be sealed. And the hands that hold it are almost certainly those of Prince Beynor of Moss, who would make any deal with anyone, even the most malevolent magical specter, to regain his lost realm." Conrig's only standing ally is his trusted childhood friend, Snudge, now elevated to the title of Sir Deveron Austrey. But even Snudge finds his loyalty being tested to its limits. For he knows Conrig's greatest weakness is his desire for conquest, and he suspects that if the king were to recover the lost Trove, he would not destroy it, as a truly good man would - but rather use it toward his own violent ends.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Vivid characterization and deft world building lift May's second Boreal Moon novel (after 2004's Conqueror's Moon). Though King Conrig has gained control of the entire island of High Blenholme, he faces many challenges, not least keeping hidden his own illicit magical powers. He hopes that his new queen, Risalla, won't produce any children with magical talent, thus disqualifying them from inheriting the throne. While he has the support of the Conjure-Queen, Ullanoth of Moss, her unscrupulous brother, Prince Beynor, schemes against him. In addition, Conrig's first queen, Maudrayne, thought to be dead, is alive and working magic for her own purposes and may have borne Conrig an heir. When the collection of moonstones known as the Trove of Danasilo threatens to fall into the wrong hands, Conrig and his allies really have their hands full. The author's usual brisk pacing will keep readers turning the pages of this well above average high fantasy. Agent, Ralph Vicinanza. (Apr. 5) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Fantastic fantasy

    The former prince of Cathra is King Conrig of High Blenholme and the former independent kingdoms are now vassal states. The king sits uneasily on the throne because he has a small amount of magic as does his three sons. By law, all of these royals are not suited to rule. He is desperate to keep this a secret but he learns that his first wife that he divorced because he thought she was barren is the mother of his son, a child who has no magic and should be the heir to the throne. --- King Conrig has other enemies including the former Royal Alchemist Killian and Prince Beynor of the House of Mass. Killian is locked away in an abbey wearing an iron collar around his neck so he can¿t perform magic and Beynor is exiled to the Downtide Isles with the sentient Salka monsters who want to rule the humans. These two men pair up to overthrow the empire starting with the destruction of the royal family of Didion. Prince Somarus allies with these two rebels and proclaims himself the king and wants his country to be independent again. Conrig¿s first wife intends to tell the world that the king has magic flowing through his veins and her son should be the king. All these characters are players in this drama of the Beaconlight, sentient beings in the sky who have the power to activate the sgyls so that whoever wears one has magic. There are forces at work to keep Conrig on his throne because he has the best chance of defeating the evil Beaconlights and be an instrument for the good Beaconlights.--- Julian May is a talented and visual writer whose descriptions make High Blenholme seem very real. There are many heroes in this tale who do the right thing for honor while the villains act in evil ways because they want power. Ms. May has written a work that is reminiscent of the LORD OF THE RINGS whose fans will definitely want read this book and the first Boreal Moon fantasy.--- Harriet Klausner
