- Author Bio
Fantasy legend Stephen R. Donaldson launches a powerful new trilogy about a prince who embarks on a desperate quest to find a sorcerous library in order to save his people.
For centuries, the realms of Belleger and Amika have been at war, with sorcerers from both sides brandishing the six Decimates: of fire, of wind, of earthquake, of drought, and of lightning. But the Amikans have discovered and invoked a seventh Decimate, one that strips all lesser sorcery of its power. And now, the Bellegerins stand defenseless.
Prince Bifalt, eldest son of the Bellegerin king, is charged with finding the repository of all of the sorcerers’ knowledge, to find the book of the seventh Decimate—and reverse the fate of his land.
But the legendary library lies beyond an unforgiving desert and treacherous mountains. Wracked by hunger and fatigue, sacrificing loyal men along the way, Bifalt will discover that there is a game being played by those far more powerful than he could ever imagine. And that he is nothing but a pawn….
