Overview

The gripping penultimate instalment of the Alliance of Light.

When half brothers Lysaer and Arithon defeated the Mistwraith its revenge left them cursed to lifelong enmity.

Having conquered the maze and acheived self-redemption, Arithon, Master of Shadow, is now the guest of the formidable sorcerer, Davien the Betrayor. No one knows how his influence will affect Arithon’s recovered mage power, or his newly awakened rogue talent for prescience.

Meanwhile Arithon’s relentless enemies will stop at nothing to acheive his downfall. The Koriani enchantresses are determined to make him their captive and their pawn. And as the Alliance of Light fanatics regroup after their defeat, the core of their priesthood now stands corrupted by a dark cabal who plot to enslave their leader, Lysaer, and use the Mistwraith’s curse as their own private weapon to break the world’s order.

The sorcerers of the Fellowship compact are sorely beset and the clans are counting their ruinous losses. Arithon, who holds their last hope of survival, chooses the most dangerous course: heart and mind he dedicates himself to avoiding killing, though allies and enemies muster for war, single-mindedly blind to the consequences.

    Arithon Uplifted

    It was wonderful to read this newest tale by Ms. Wurts. I was intrigued by Davien, and could hardly wait to see how his interactions with Arithon would develop. The characters and their histories are so complex. It is amazing to see how Lysaer and Arithon continue to grow and change yet maintain some of their original identities. Arithon has our hearts' and support, but then Lysaer has his own appeal. This is a fascinating addition to the series with its twists and conspiracies, and again I am left hanging wondering what will happen to this world and its many players. I certainly am hoping for the next installment to be published.

    Wonderful Characters

    The characters of this book, this series are very detailed, very real. The characters do not go out of character to solver problems, they are who they are, which is entertaining. Very highly recommended.

    A Great Book!!!

    Along with Peril's Gate, this is one of Janny Wurts' best works. Now that Arithon has left some of his baggage behind in Kewar Tunnel, things flow really well and you'll constantly be on the edge of your seat. In previous works, the scenes with Lysaer sometimes made me count the pages until the next chapter with Arithon, but this time, even those scenes were awesome and interesting. As always the high level and depth that symbolizes Janny Wurts' writing is there and makes it so you can read the book over and over again, catching new stuff all the time. Traitor's Knot is definately one of my favorite books of all time!
