Overview

In a realm on the brink of war, will an unsuspected heir to the kingdom of Coronnan and to magic long-banished from the land offer the only hope for survival?

Glenndon–son of witchwoman Brevelan and Jaylor, Senior Magician and Chancellor of the University of Magicians–has never spoken aloud. He has no need because his telepathic talent is strong and everyone associated with the University can “hear” him. He can throw master-level spells, but because he will not speak, Jaylor has refused to promote him from apprentice to journeyman magician. Still, everyone knows it is only a matter of time until Glenndon will take his rightful place at the University.

Then an urgent missive arrives from King Darville. The Council of Provinces is near rebellion over the king’s lack of a male heir. Rather than see his fourteen-year-old daughter, Rosselinda, married off just to procure an heir, he orders his illegitimate son Glenndon to Coronnan City to become his successor. And suddenly Glenndon’s world is in chaos. The man he’s always known as his father is not. Instead he is the son of the king. But in this city where court politics can prove deadly and where magic is forbidden, the young man must hide his talents even as he struggles to find his voice and his destiny.

And one slip could see Glenndon, Darville, Rosselinda, and even Jaylor doomed, for the lords and the people fear magic more than potential invasion, legendary monsters, and civil war.

Praise

“An incredible story of courage and belief…will soon take its place among the greatest of the fantasy epics.” — Affaire de Coeur (for THE GLASS DRAGON)

“Ms. Radford continues to grow in stature as a storyteller, weaving an intricate tale of magic, politics, and romance to keep us spellbound.” — Romantic Times (for THE DRAGON’S TOUCHSTONE)

“The Merlin mystique and the fascinating rivalry of Elizabeth and Mary, Queen of Scots, underpins this entertaining blend of fantasy and history, which invites comparison with Mary Stewart and Marion Zimmer Bradley.…Roanna, a witch who suffers at the hand of the twins early in the story, steals the show.” — Publishers Weekly (for GUARDIAN OF THE VISION)

“Set in Elizabethan England, Radford’s latest historical fantasy continues the tale begun in Guardian of the Balance and Guardian of the Trust and displays the author’s meticulous research as well as her gift for graceful storytelling.” — Library Journal (for GUARDIAN OF THE VISION)
