y separately published work icon Prophecy's Ruin Sam Bowring , Sydney : Hachette Australia , 2009 Z1638249 2009 single work novel fantasy

'For a millennium the lands of Kainordas and Fenvarrow have been at war, ever since the gods of shadow and light broke the Great Well of Souls. In the absence of victory, they have settled into an uneasy stalemate - until a prophecy foretells of a child of power who will finally break the balance. Each side races to find the child, and when they do, a battle ensues with unexpected consequences - in a terrible accident, the child's very soul is ripped in two. Each side retreats with their own part of the child, uncertain as to whether they now possess the one capable of finally ending their age-old battle.

'Prophecy's Ruin tells the story of the two boys as they grow to be men. Bel becomes a charismatic though troubled warrior, Losara an enigmatic and thoughtful mage. Both are powerful young men, yet incomplete. As they struggle to discover their place in the world and the shape of their destinies, inevitably each has to ask the ultimate question: will he, one day, have to face himself?' (From the publisher's website.)

'War is coming. A war that will finally end the struggle between Kainordas and Fenvarrow, the lands of shadow and light.

'It is foretold that a blue-haired man will be the ultimate victor, and lead his people into a glorious new age of dominance.

'The only problem - there are two of them.

'Bel sets forth to retrieve the Stone of Evenings Mild, his sole chance to reunite with his darker half, Losara ... but the Stone has been stolen by an undead mage of questionable allegiance and is hidden in the lair of an insane dragon. Meanwhile, Losara grows dangerously curious about his other self, and devises a weapon so uncontrollable, it frightens even him.

'How can two men fulfil a fate meant for one? Will this infernal balance persist, or is there a way to bridge destiny's rift?' Source: author's website.

Meanwhile, the warrior Bel rides with all the forces of light. He carries the Stone of Evenings Mild, his only means of drawing his shadowy counterpart Losara back into himself, to reunite their fractured soul.
