Overview

Janny Wurts’s epic tale of two half-brothers cursed to life-long enmity reaches new heights in the third volume, now re-released with a striking new cover.

Tricked once more by his wily half-brother, Lysaer, Lord of Light, arrives at the tiny harbour town of Merior to find that Arithon’s ship yards have been abandoned and meticulously destroyed, and that the Master of Shadow has disappeared as if into thin air.

Meanwhile Arithon and the Mad Prophet Dakar are travelling on foot through the treacherous Kelhorn Mountains towards the Vastmark clans, there to raise further support for his cause. But raising a warhost is a costly business. Is it mere coincidence that Princess Talith – Lysaer’s beautiful, headstrong wife – is taken captive and held for a vast ransom by a master brigand?

The forces of light and shadow circle and feint, drawing ever closer to a huge conflict. And in the background the Fellowship of Seven Sorcerers and the Koriani Enchantresses watch and plan, and wait…

Lysaer, Prince of Light, lacks the means to transport his vast warhost, but swears he will still capture Arithon, Master of Shadow, defenseless in his shipyard at the seaside village of Merior. Arithon has no choice but to attempt the impossible--to see one ship launched before Lysaer can corner him, or to raise up a counterforce and meet in battle.

    Fabulous series, one of the best!

    Heart stopping action, suspense, a complex and fascinating hero, magic that is woven into the fabric of the world instead of added on as an extra, beautiful prose! What more could you want?

    Janny Wurts is an excellent writer

    I started out with Janny's book, "The Mistwraith" and have read all of the following books. I keep hoping we will see some advance and maybe conclusion of this series. Her plot is very detailed, and includes a full spectrum of characters. I check quite often to see if we have a new book avaiable. Keep up the good work.
