Overview



California natives Gil and Rudy must use their newfound magical powers to defend their adopted homeland when the powers of the Dark rise up—again


Once upon a time, Gil and Rudy lived simple lives. Until they met Ingold, she was an ordinary PhD candidate and he was a drifter, whiling away his life riding motorcycles under the California sun. But wizards have a way of complicating things. Ingold brought them across the Void, where an evil known as the Dark threatened to devour civilization whole. Civilization’s hopes rested on an infant prince, and to protect him Gil and Rudy had to draw on newfound powers—she as a warrior, and he as a wizard. With Ingold’s help they escaped the Dark, and led a hardy band of survivors to a far-away keep, where humanity could be safe for a time.
 
But now that time is past, and there is nowhere to hide from the Dark.

    TERRIFIC SERIES

    I've loved Gandalf since the 1960s, but after reading the Darwath series, I would put Ingold Inglorian at the top of my wizard list!

    Random House, please put ALL of Barbara Hambly's books on NOOK, so I can replace my old battered paperbacks. Highly recommended.
