Overview

A devastating and seemingly senseless attack on the Omunga Academy of Magic leaves Lyra running for her life. Her father, Master Malafar, was kidnapped and her mother was killed during the attack. Her mother’s cryptic dying words propel Lyra on a journey across the breadth of the country in search of her Uncle Temiker. The raiders of the Academy however have other plans for Lyra as they doggedly pursue her. Trying to stay one step ahead of the raiders, Lyra finds out that the Imperial government wants her head for the very slaughter she narrowly escaped.

With the raiders in pursuit and Imperial troops blocking the roads ahead, Lyra has no chance of survival unless she enters the dreaded Sakova, a land of nightmares. The Sakova, long known as a place of no return, is home to cannibals, ferocious beasts, and strange magic.

The fast pace of her flight leaves Lyra little time to solve the mysteries of the attack, but the questions of why anyone would kidnap her father, or slaughter dozens of innocents to accomplish it, linger as a gnawing distraction.

Discover a world of swords and magic, political intrigue and deceit, and cunning, ruthless people who seek to finish the annihilation of a society that began ages ago

Editorial Reviews

eBook Reviews Weekly - Patricia Spork
Richard S. Tuttle is to be doubly congratulated for Book Two of the Forgotten Legacy series. Star of Sakova is masterfully engineered, correlating his heroine's country's history to that of his hero's in Book One. The many characters are well fleshed and conflicts are abundant and aptly resolved to great satisfaction. I very highly recommend Star of Sakova: Book Two of Forgotten Legacy as a must read, especially as the follow-up to Book One of the fantasy series. Readers will not be disappointed
Our Book Reviews Online - The Mole
I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to fantasy readers of all ages. The font and layout may put off younger readers, but this story is totally accessible to readers of all ages. The plot is not mind stretching and convoluted, if anything it's simple but well written and fast moving and is as good a plot as the Potter boy's and, if anything, a little more satisfying.
Molly's Reviews - Molly Martin
Exciting read - 5 stars - highly recommended

The action never stops as the reader is carried along on a wild journey filled with everything we have come to expect from excellent writers of fantasy. Come observe an extraordinary land springing from the fertile mind of Writer Tuttle. The Star of Sakova is a fast paced action packed work occupied with a rich tapestry of spectacle, timbre, conflict and duplicity. Tuttle is a fine young writer to be reckoned with in the genre.

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.
