AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In a land in turmoil, at a time when history meets destiny, an exile and an orphan become caught in a prophecy greater than the imaginings of its creator, a prophecy older than time itself... Robert Douglas, Earl of Dunlorn, returns to Lusara after three years of self-imposed exile to find his beloved country enmeshed in the tyranny of the Guilde. The once peaceful and prosperous land has been crushed by the usurper Selar, but while the vanquished people cry out for a saviour, events are unfolding that will determine the fate not just of Lusara, but of the whole world.

Now Robert Douglas, possessed of powers of sorcery greater than any before him, must struggle against his conscience, for though he has sworn never to oppose the usurper King, he can no longer watch his homeland being destroyed by the ruthless Guilde and an uncaring monarch. Then he discovers the orphan Jenn- a different kind of sorcerer, whose powers may be as great as his own. But while Robert and Jenn struggle to understand the magic they command, there is another sorcerer opposing them, one who would destroy all to twist fate to his own dark purposes... Kate Jacoby

Notes

  • Epigraph:

    I know I am
    the wanderer of all the ways of all the worlds
    to whom the sunshine and the rain are one
    and one to stay or hasten because he knows no ending of the way
    no home, no goal

    Christopher Brennen [sic.]
