9780002240741: Alliance of Light Book Two - Grand Conspiracy

Wurts’ incredibly successful Wars of Light and Shadow series continues.

It is a time of intrigue, fanaticism and rampaging armies. Distrust of sorcery has unleashed a purge of the mageborn – none reviled more than Arithon, Master of Shadow. Through clever manipulation of events at the hands of Lysaer, Master of Light, Arithon’s very name has become anathema. Now, the volatile hatreds that first spearheaded the campaign against Shadow have overtaken all reason.

Those that still stand in Arithon’s desperate defence are downtrodden, in retreat and close to defeat. The stage is set for ultimate betrayal.

Review:

‘Astonishingly original and compelling’

DIANA GABALDON

‘With each new book it becomes more and more obvious how important Janny Wurts is to contemporary fantasy’
GUY GAVRIEL KAY

‘The Wars of Light and Shadow will be the hit of the
‘90s as Tolkien was the hit of the
‘60s’
MARION ZIMMER BRADLEY

From the Back Cover:

The wars began when two half brothers, gifted of light and shadow, stood shoulder to shoulder to defeat the Mistwraith. In defeat, their foe set its captors at odds, bestowing upon them a lifelong curse of enmity that has so far woven three bitter conflicts and uncounted deadly intrigues …

Now the volatile hatreds that spearheaded the campaign against Shadow have overtaken all reason.
