From the Back Cover

A spellbinding tale of sorcery, intrigue and betrayal from the author of the Runespell Trilogy and the Book of Ond.

Prince Rollo's world is shattered by the death of his mother, Queen Ursula of Artor. But even before he can grieve he faces the bitter disappointment of being overlooked as heir to the throne in favour of his younger sister. Deeply concerned for his son, Caspar decides to take Rollo to Torra Alta, his barony across the ocean in Belbidia, to claim the only birthright left to him.

But fifteen years have passed since Caspar left his uncle, Hal, as guardian of the remote province and many things have changed. Terrible creatures, banished from Belbidia years ago, are re-emerging; a huge golden dragon plagues the mountains and swarms of hobs and ravenshrikes ransack the fertile plains. Worst of all, the Chalice of Ond, a sacred artefact with the power to duplicate other magical objects, has been lost.

If this powerful weapon has fallen into the wrong hands, a dark age will undoubtedly befall Belbidia and her people.

I love these books, and now have all three trilogies. First one was brilliant, second one going great, I'll rate the third one when I get to it.
