9780006483915: Fortress of Owls (A Galasien novel)

A new Galasien novel, the eagerly awaited sequel to Cherryh’s acclaimed FORTRESS OF EAGLES and FORTRESS IN THE EYE OF TIME.

A new high fantasy triumph continuing the amazing story of two friends, king and sorcerer, in an age of wizardry. The Galasien Books are a legend in the making, an epic saga of ancient magic and the power of destiny.

In the conflict between the shadowy immortals Mauryl and Hasufin, Tristen the Shaping and his sword are both weapons: Tristen was made by Mauryl, and the sword, which frightens Tristen, is made for magic.

Tristen has helped his friend Prince Cefwyn become King, and now he holds the stewardship of Amefel. But he will have to take up the sword and the ancient Sihhe magic he has forsworn, for he is destiny’s own, a combatant whether he likes it or not in the fearsome conflict between darkness and light.

From the Back Cover:

THE SCARLET BANNERS OF WAR

In a world of constant strife, King Cefwyn and his bride Ninevrise are beset by plotters, traitors and enemies at every turn. Cefwyn's ally is Tristen, a Shaping of the last great Sihhe wizard Mauryl, and now the King's Steward in the land of Amefel. When war threatens once again, knowledge unfolds in Tristen's mind of a far older and more fearsome struggle: the ancient war between wizardry and sorcery, embodied by the shadowy immortal enemies Mauryl and Hasufin. Tristen was made as a weapon in this terrible conflict. He must take up the sword and the Sihhe magic he has forsworn, for he is destiny'' own. Cefwyn, his friend and his King, faces dangers darker than armies can fight alone.
