Wizards and Warlords vie for power as Captain Corrain and the charismatic Lady Zurenne are bound together by perilous secrets. Will the collision of magic and brute strength allow them to survive and the world escape war?
Captain Corrain is hailed as a hero but he knows all such praise would turn to anger if certain people knew what had really happened. The wizard who supposedly saved him and his comrades has merely claimed the island of the corsair's for his own. No one knows what this enigmatic newcomer intends to do next.
Corrain has good reason to fear the worst, as he confides in Lady Zurenne of Halferan. He knows he can trust her now that still more perilous secrets bind the two of them together.
This disastrous turn of events cannot be concealed from Hadrumal’s powerful mages. The Chief Mage Planir’s leadership is now openly questioned. Surely he will enforce his authority by crushing this upstart? But the Aldabreshin warlords act first.
The warlords are watching the ominous skies as a once in a lifetime conjunction of the stars approaches. Will the warlords be content to drive this solitary wizard out of the Archipelago or has the time come for them to destroy all magic?

The Hadrumal Crisis trilogy is very well done. I was pleased Ms. McKenna didn't delve into repeating a lot the Tales od Einarinn which preceded this trilogy. I do highly recommend all of these books. ]I have one complaint...The book covers for this series does NOT do these books justice. If I were browsing and saw them for the first time and didn't know the subject matter or author, I would not have purchased these books. The covers make them look as if the books are dark and evil. Please Ms. McKenna have a care when you select the covers!!!!!
