9780007123261: Sorcerer's Moon (The Boreal Moon Tale)

The stunning conclusion to a powerful epic fantasy from the worldwide bestselling author of the Saga of the Pliocene Exile.For sixteen years King Conrig Ironcrown has ruled High Blenholme, battling both to preserve the Sovereignty he ruthlessly established over the four provinces of the island kingdom and to repel the invading Salka monsters that threaten them all. His hope for the future is his heir, Prince Orrion, whose betrothal to a princess of the province of Didion should assure the future peace of High Blenholme. But Orrion has no interest in the girl, and is determined to marry instead his childhood sweetheart, Lady Nyla.Orrion's madcap twin, Corodon, dreams up a scheme to keep Orry and Nyla together by asking the supernatural Beaconfolk, who appear as lights in the sky, for a magical intercession. The twins are unaware that the Beaconfolk are fighting their own battle with others of their kind; to them all humans, even princes, are but pawns to be used in their own conflict. Their granting of Orrion's wish comes in a manner the twins far from expected, and precipitates chaotic infighting amongst the folk of High Blenholme.As battles rage both on the ground and in the sky, the only hopes for peace can be found deep in King Conrig's murky past. His former spy, Deveron Austrey, has secret magical powers and no love for the Beaconfolk. And while many of his subjects no longer remember the King's first wife, Maudrayne, she has never forgotten that her son is the true heir to the throne of High Blenholme.

About the Author:

Julian May is the author of the Saga of the Pliocene Exile (The Many-Coloured Land, The Golden Torc, The Nonborn King), The Galactic Millieu Trilogy, Black Trillium (with Marion Zimmer Bradley and Andre Norton), Blood Trillium and Sky Trillium, and most recently The Rampart Worlds. The author lives in the state of Washington.

From Booklist:

The conclusion of the Boreal Moon Tale (Conqueror's Moon, 2004, and Ironcrown Moon, 2005, precede it) fulfills most readers' expectations. The magic of King Conrig of High Blenholme, by which he maintains his rule against the rebellious, nonhuman Salka, is weakening. He trusts his son, Prince Orrion, will succeed him, but that depends on a dynastic marriage. Orrion wants to marry his childhood sweetheart--and endanger his succession. Posing further danger to orderly succession, Conrig's first wife thinks her son is the legitimate heir and intrigues to put him forward. That might solve Orrion's romantic problems. Then the Salka flare into open revolt, and Conrig is driven to desperate measures, including old, foul magic, to get himself off the horns of his dilemmas. Though the pace is sometimes slow, May realizes characters, setting, and the potential ethical conundrums involved in using magic with her accustomed skill, and readers who've enjoyed her for 30 years won't stop now.
