‘Astonishingly original and compelling’ Raymond E. Feist
‘It ought to be illegal for one person to have so much talent’ Stephen Donaldson
Janny Wurts's epic tale of two half-brothers cursed to life-long enmity reaches new heights in the third volume, now re-released with a striking new cover. Tricked once more by his wily half-brother, Lysaer, Lord of Light, arrives at the tiny harbour town of Merior to find that Arithon's ship yards have been abandoned and meticulously destroyed, and that the Master of Shadow has disappeared as if into thin air. Meanwhile Arithon and the Mad Prophet Dakar are travelling on foot through the treacherous Kelhorn Mountains towards the Vastmark clans, there to raise further support for his cause. But raising a warhost is a costly business. Is it mere coincidence that Princess Talith -- Lysaer's beautiful, headstrong wife -- is taken captive and held for a vast ransom by a master brigand? The forces of light and shadow circle and feint, drawing ever closer to a huge conflict. And in the background the Fellowship of Seven Sorcerers and the Koriani Enchantresses watch and plan, and wait...See all Product description

We learn a lot more about the world of Athera and our protagonists. I don't want to spoil anyone and will refrain from mentioning plot. Just know the world building is intricate, the various factions and magic systems intriguing and well developed. The characters are complex from the very beginning but get to grow throughout the story and the prose is beautiful.
If you're at all into high fantasy, please consider this series and bring all the patience you've got because these books deserve an attentive reader who appreciates the complexity. You won't be disappointed.
Tolstoy, Tolkien, Feist, Jordan, Brooks, Martin, Williams, Elliott - Set the standard.
Janny Wurts meets that standard - In my opinion.
The authors writing is impecable, storyline, prose and charactarisation.
I loved reading this book and the series, it carried me away to a different world, provided me with an escape from the humdrum of life - a good nights sleep.
Faults: Sometimes the the author constructs sentances that stretch to paragraghs, which need to be read twice or thrice to glean the meaning, which can be a real bugger when reading. The only fault I have with this author, is that the author writes a wonderful piece of work, but does not read it back, to ensure quality and ensure a child can understand.
If I wrote a book, I would want all to appreciate it.
Having said this; this author and her books are by far the best; and are set apart from the rubbish that 'Amazon' would want us to buy (Some of which are really awefull).
I love Janny Wurts
Hope you do too ????????????????
