Young Tiercel Rolfort is studying Ancient History. When his reading reveals a system of High Magic he has never heard of before, Tyr tries to cast a spell… and sets his bedroom on fire.

Harrier Gillain, son of the Harbormaster, has been hauling Tyr out of scrapes since he was three years old. When Tyr decides to seek help from the Elves, Harrier knows he’ll have to go along and make sure Tyr doesn’t burn down the whole forest.

Wild Mage Bisochim has discovered that the Balance between Light and Dark has shifted too far toward the Light. He chooses to return Darkness to the world—a delicate and dangerous undertaking.

  • “This beguiling beginning promises a highly readable epic combining vivid characterization with an interesting exploration of how past heroics are twisted over centuries into something both more and less than they were.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Alexandrea | 12/22/2013

    " A relatively enjoyable story, but quite predictable once you've read the series that takes place in the same world a thousand years ago (Shadow Rising/To Light a Candle/When Darkness Falls...not in that order...) The plot felt a little jumpy and sudden at times, but the writing style has a dry humor about it. "

    " I picked up this book because I enjoyed the first trilogy set in this world. The magic system has some unique boundaries placed on it and the character development and pacing were engaging. This book was awful. It attempts to make the characters and storyline of the first series meaningless, leaving me to believe the only reason to write this book (since there isn't an original or amusing line in it) is to make more money for the authors. I realize authors need to make money but I regret the purchase of this book. I never finished it and wish I had gone to the library for my regretted lost time. "

    " Very nicely done. As always, she does a great job with these characters and this world setting. She's adjusted the time-span nicely. "

    " I didn't realize this was a continuation of the obsidion quest. Lackey picks up centuries after Knight Mage Kellen has saved the world from the endarkened. I look forward to the next installment. "
