Amazon Review

In Fortress in the Eye of Time, C.J. Cherryh demonstrated that she can do something quite different from the tough-minded space operas of warrior elites and technobarons with which she made her name. No-one knows quite who, or what, young Tristen is, or was before; he drifts into the lands of Men when his master's, or creator's, immemorial citadel falls to the magic of his enemies, and becomes a crucial player in the game of thrones. Now young King Cefwyn has to use the victory that Tristen's off-hand magic and gallantry won him-- and the church is not happy either with Cefwyn's choice of half-elven bride or with his choice of friends. Sent from court with a brand new dukedom and a border province to make loyal, Tristen learns governance in the same ingenuous way that he learned human relationships--charm and intelligence see him through in spite of a distinct oddity of affect. This is a likeable and clever book in what is presumably set to become an extended series--it perhaps lacks an entire capacity to stand on its own. It shares with its predecessor a dreamy sense of the magical quite their own. --Roz Kaveney:


Magic, passion and complicity abound in this dramatic sequel to the successful fantasy epic Fortress in the Eye of Time. The wizard Mauryl Gestaurien cast his greatest spell to create Tristen, the grey-eyed youth with strange powers. Mauryl's death sent the innocent Tristen out into the world, where he is protected by a strange glamour -- and befriended by Prince Cefwyn, heir to the Marhanen throne. Armed with a book of spells he cannot read and a magic sword bearing the words "Truth" on one side and "Illusion" on the other, Tristen rides into battle for Cefwyn against the Shadow spawned by Hasufin, Mauryl's greatest enemy. Now king, Cefwyn's two great plans are to marry Ninevrise, the beautiful Lady Regent of lwynor, and to reunite Ylesuin, the land known in its former glory as Galasien. But even as his wedding approaches, his dreams grow unattainable. His barons want to control him, and they fear Tristen's powers. At Cefwyn's urging, Tristen hides himself, his powers and his sword. As war inevitably draws nearer, Cefwyn may be forced to choose between his friend and his bride.

But as a sorcerer created by the last of the Old Wizards, Tristen alone possesses the ancient magic that can save King Cefwyn -- and the kingdom itself -- from certain destruction by Cefwyn's enemies.
