From the author of The Many-Colored Land comes the saga of a land beyond the horizon, where the quest for power is eternal, where magic and mystery are feared above all, and one man sought to reign.
On a remote island, far in the Boreal Sea, four kingdoms have struggled against one another since time out of mind. Most mysterious is the marshland kingdom of Moss—feared by the others and ruled by the Sorcerers. Soon, all will be put in peril’s way.
In recent years, three of the kingdoms have suffered fearsome volcanic eruptions that choke crops, famine among people, and an ailing leader on his deathbed. Only Moss, poverty-stricken and desolate at the best of times, seems untroubled.
But Prince Conrig of Cathra, who waits patiently as his father, the king, wastes slowly away, is in league with his lover, the seductive sorceress Princess Ullanoth of Moss. And if their secret alliance succeeds in its goal, the warring kingdoms of High Blenholme will be united once and for all—under the iron hand of one supreme rule.

Only thing i must say is that "If it were not for Sorceress Ullanoth i would have given up on series, but she alone is enough to keep you turning pages. The powerfull young mage 'Snudge' is also very interesting. If you would like to know more please feel free to contact me...
It should have been a peaceful place, the isolated island in the Boreal Sea but the four kingdoms that inhabit it have periodically gone to war. In the kingdom of Cathra, the heir to the throne Prince Conrig wants to be the high king when his father dies and all the other lands would become his vassal states. He lost his chance to enforce the Edict of Sovereignty when his father refuses to commit an army to invade Didion and instead orders a naval embargo which the seafaring nation easily avoids.............................. Now Conrig has made an alliance with the powerful Sorceress of Moss, who will help him in return for becoming the queen of her kingdom as his first vassal state. Her brother Prince Beynor is the heir and has made an alliance with Didion, giving to them what his sister has given to Conrig, the full use of the powerful magic they would need................................. Julian May, author of THE MANY COLORED LAND, is one of the best world builders in fantasy today. His latest sword and sorcery saga is of epic propositions and is told from the point of view of Snudge, Conrig¿s snoop, assassin and the one called upon when something nasty needs doing. CONQUEROR¿S MOON is the first installment in The Boreal Moon tales and readers will be hooked, anxiously wanting to read the next volume to find out how some of the dangling threads are sewn up.......................
