Maggie Furey's glittering epic sweeping from Aurian
through Harp of Winds
and Sword of Flame,
climaxes as Aurian draws near to a deadly enemy lurking in a city forgotten by time. . .
Bearing the Staff of Earth and the Harp of Winds, the Lady Aurian secretly returns to the holy city of Nexis--ten years in the future. Now its marbled towers are desolate, its river port ravaged, its magefolk a mere legend. Here she must begin the search for her vanished soulmate, Anvar, and her lost child. . . and hunt down the evil adversary who stole from her the Sword of Flame, last of the four great primal weapons. But Aurian's final battle awaits her far away in the southlands. For there dwells her old nemesis, the crazed Archmage Miathan--and there, in the ancient city of Dhiammara, broods a dark magic that could shatter forever the destined redemption of her world.
At the close of "Sword of Flame", the evil Mage Eliseth disappears through a rift in time, taking with her Lady Aurian's lover, Anvar, and two of the powerful Arifacts of the Old Magic. Accompanied by a handful of companions, Lady Aurian gives a chase, only to find herself thrown into a corrupt future world ravaged by Eliseth's schemes. Unable to control the Harp of Winds, and with the power of her staff tainted, she and her cohorts must nonetheless rescue Anvar, win the Sword, and crush the sinister Mage forever.
