SERPENT MAGE

After searching the four worlds Alfred has at last found his people on Chelestra, the realm of sea. But his travels have taught him to be cautious…and Alfred soon realizes his caution is justified, even among his own kind.

The one person Alfred can trust is, strangely, Haplo the Patryn. But Haplo’s lord has decreed all Sartan to be the enemy, and Haplo dares not go against his lord. Now the companions have arrived in a land where humans, elves, and dwarves have learned to live in peace. Unaware of an even greater threat to all the realms, it is Sartan and Patryn who will disrupt this alliance of the lesser races in their struggle to gain control of all four worlds.

FIRE SEA

Abarrach, the Realm of Stone. Here, on a barren world of underground caverns built around a core of molten lava, the lesser races–humans, elves, and dwarves–seem to have all died off. Here, too, what may well be the last remnants of the once powerful Sartan still struggle to survive.

For Haplo and Alfred–enemies by heritage, traveling companions by necessity–Abarrach may reveal more than either dares to discover about the history of Sartan… and the future of all their descendents. Continue reading

In a realm where magic is life, Joram was one of the Dead. Born without power, he was denied his royal birthright and sentenced to the Turning—his mind to be imprisoned inside a husk of living stone.

Yet at the last moment. Saryon took his place, suffering the eternal torment for his young master. And Joram and his wife Gwendolyn vanished into the mists that marked the Border of the World…

Now, ten years later, Joram and Gwendolyn have returned to reclaim their rightful place in Merilon. Wielding one last time the terrible, magic-thirsting Darksword, Joram must confront the evil sorcerer Menju and his army of Technologists from beyond the Border in a final apocalyptic battle.

Rejoined by Saryon, the mage Mosiah and Simkin, Joram will fulfill the ancient prophecy of the Darksword—the prophecy that puts in his hands the power to destroy the world…or save it.

Born without magic, Joram was one of the Dead, denied the throne of Merilon. For years, he lived among outlaws, surviving by wit and sleight-of-hand.

Now, wielding the powerful, magic-absorbing Darksword, Joram returns to the enchanted Kingdom that once was his home to win revenge and claim his birthright. Here he will test Bishop Vanya and his fierce army of Duuk-tsarith in a battle unlike any their world has known.

Joined by the scholarly catalyst Saryon, the young mage Mosiah, and the trickster Simkin, Joram confronts the shattering secret of his past and discovers the ancient prophecy that puts the fate of the world in his hands—the hands that forged the Darksword.
