Under the reign of the tyrant King Fvorag, bards, storytellers, and other keepers of hidden truths met only death at the hands of the black-clad armies; the severed heads of the king's enemies adorned his Wall of Traitors, and even the moon hid its gentle light from a land that grew desolate. When Toshar, grandson of the last Elderbard, learns he must undertake a quest to restore the light of the moon-and the brightness of songs and stories-to the land, he little realizes that his true destiny lies in the kernels of truth he awakens in others. First in a planned trilogy by inspirational speaker Gerson, this debut moves quickly yet gracefully, its songlike prose a match for its ethereal characters and its allegorical message of inner truth. Fans of quest-centered fantasy and visionary fiction as well as New Agers should enjoy this emotionally solid tale; appropriate for large fantasy or New Age collections.
