Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The stunning sequel to The Wayfarer Redemption

Axis is a true hero, in every sense of the word. On his shoulders lies the double burden of prophecy and war. Having fulfilled the first part of the prophecy by becoming the StarMan, he now must reunite the three races inhabiting his world.

It is his destiny to lead an army against his evil half-brother, to regain control of Tencendor, once the greatest land in the world.

It is his destiny to be caught between the two women he loves, one the epitome of gentility, beauty, and intelligence, the other a fierce warrior with a cunning wit.

And it is his destiny to be thwarted at every turn by the vicious Goragel, an insane monster bent on destroying all that Axis works to preserve . . .

Enchanter is the riveting sequel to Sara Douglass's spell-binding first novel The Wayfarer Redemption, and winner of the 1996 Aurealis Award for Best Fantasy Novel. Sara Douglass has taken America by storm with this powerful tale of love, prophecy, battles, and revenge.

Review:

"Douglass holds her own as her characters deepen inventively." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"With three races, licit and illicit loves, prophecy, fraternal hatred, and enough battles for several campaigns, Douglass has whipped up enough raw material to avoid shortchanging readers throughout her vast undertaking. Moreover, she has plenty of talent, despite some new-author awkwardness; though her characterization is usually superb, the occasional persona suffers from inconsistent or inadequate motivation. Suffice it to say that no one who liked its predecessor is likely to complain about Enchanter." Booklist

Review:

"Sara Douglass has the breadth of vision necessary to create sweeping epics and the storyteller's gift that makes readers love her." Locus

Review:

"An Australian treasure comes to America's shores. Sara Douglass makes her mark with this vivid, gritty saga brimming with treachery, action, bravery, and dark magic." Elizabeth Haydon, author of Destiny

Review:

"Sara Douglass blends traditional elements of mythology and folklore with her own highly original ideas to produce a tale with both depth and immediacy. I recommend this series to lovers of epic fantasy." Juliet Marillier, author of Daughter of the Forest

Review:

"Epic storytelling on a par with Terry Goodkind and Robert Jordan." Library Journal
