Wars of Light and Shadow #4: Fugitive Prince: Alliance of Light: Volume Oneby Janny Wurts
Synopses & Reviews
The schism began with two halfbrothers empowered to subdue a Mistwraith. In revenge it cursed them to a life of perpetual conflict: each believes absolutely in his cause, and loathes the other for opposing it. Lysaer, Prince of the Light—a charismatic leader sworn to set humanity free from sorcerous oppression—claims divine power to safeguard his people from an enemy he is convinced will destroy them. Arithon, Master of Shadow—a trained mage—wishes for nothing but to defuse war and search out the vanished old races who hold the key to restore the world's shattered peace. When Koriani enchantresses join forces with Lysaer, new intrigues upset Arithon's hard-won autonomy. Faction is set against faction, heart against heart, and the scene is set for an explosive recurrence of war. The curse of the Mistwraith echoes eternal!
