The second volume of the Exiles series pits sister against sister in a battle of magic, power, and long-held family secrets For generations, the Mage Guardians and the Lords of Malerris have waged a secret war against one another—and the world of Lenfell has paid the price. And though the Mage Guardians came close to being destroyed in the last confrontation, the Malerrisi were ultimately forced to withdraw, relinquishing much of the control they had gained. But their retreat has not been as complete as it seems. Glenin, former First Daughter of Ambrai, is determined to have her revenge and regain her power, plotting the ruin of her sisters, Sarra, Councillor of Sheve, and Cailet, the new Mage Captal, while the Malerissi—under Glenin’s leadership—once again begin weaving a web with which to entangle their entire world. And even as Cailet’s dream of a restored Mage Hall becomes a reality, and Sarra’s legal reforms offer the hope of greater prosperity and equality for all people, Glenin prepares to strike at the very heart of both her sisters’ power. All it will take is the betrayal of Ambrai’s most closely guided family secret, and the right traitor planted in the heart of Cailen’s haven. A traitor trained to be the nemesis of all Mage Guardians; Glenin’s perfect tool of destruction and most loyal follower—her own son.

Martin, Rick Riordan, Christopher Paolini und J.R.R. Tolkien. Ich konnte es nicht aus der Hand legen!" --Allegra Skye, Bestseller-Autor von SAVED MARSCH DER KÖNIGE nimmt uns mit auf die nächste Etappe von Thors epischer Reise durch sein Schicksal, auf der er nach und nach mehr darüber erfährt, wer er ist, was seine Kräfte sind, und auf der er beginnt, ein Krieger zu werden. Nachdem er den Kerkern entkommt, erfährt Thor entsetzt von einem weiteren Mordanschlag auf König MacGil. Der Tod von MacGil versetzt das Königreich in Aufruhr. Während alle es auf den Thron abgesehen haben, ist Königshof mehr denn je von Familiendramen, Machtkämpfen, Ehrgeiz, Eifersucht, Gewalt und Verrat erfüllt. Ein Erbe muss aus den Reihen der Kinder ernannt werden, und das uralte Schicksalsschwert, die Quelle all ihrer Macht, erhält erneut eine Gelegenheit, von jemandem erhoben zu werden. Doch all dies kann noch umgestürzt werden: die Mordwaffe wird gefunden, und die Schlinge zieht sich enger, den Mörder ausfindig zu machen. Zugleich droht den MacGils neue Gefahr von den McClouds, die wieder einmal planen, von innerhalb des Ringes anzugreifen. Thor kämpft darum, Gwendolyns Liebe zurückzuerobern, doch möglicherweise bleibt dafür keine Zeit: er wird angewiesen, seine Sachen zu packen und sich mit seinen Waffenbrüdern auf die Hundert vorzubereiten, einhundert höllische, aufreibende Tage, die jeder Legionär durchleben muss. Die Legion muss zum Eintritt ins Mannesalter den Canyon überqueren, den Schutz des Rings verlassen und in die Wildlande reisen. Sie segeln über die Tartonische See zur Insel der Nebel, von der gesagt wird, dass ein Drache sie bewacht. Werden sie es zurück nach Hause schaffen? Wird der Ring in ihrer Abwesenheit überleben? Und wird Thor endlich das Geheimnis seines Schicksals lüften? Mit seinen fein ausgearbeiteten Welten und Charakteren ist MARSCH DER KÖNIGE eine epische Saga von Freundschaft und Liebe, von Rivalen und Verehrern, von Rittern und Drachen, von Intrigen und politischen Machenschaften, vom Erwachsenwerden, von gebrochenen Herzen, von Täuschung, Ehrgeiz und Verrat.

In The Outstretched Shadow, which was named by VOYA as Best Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror book for 2003, Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory introduced readers to The Obsidian Trilogy and a complex new fantasy world populated by humans, centaurs, elves, talking unicorns, and demons. The Golden City of the Bells, where only humans live, is ruled by the Mage Council, practitioners of High Magic---a powerful magic that is stable and reliable, though rigidly controlled and performed only by men. Outside the City's walls, humans and magical beings mix freely and call upon Wild Magic---a system sometimes erratic, always driven by desire and need, and performed by both men and women. Now, in To Light a Candle, the Demon Queen sends her forces against her human and elven enemies, sowing distraction and death. In the human City, the Queen's agents work to divide the Council and foment rebellion among the City's citizens. In the countryside, they target the most vulnerable and valuable---the young Elf Prince and the Wild Mages who might be the Demons' most dangerous enemies. To his own surprise, young Kellen, once the disappointing son of the great Mage who leads the City's Mage Council, has become a powerful Knight-Mage. Valued for his bravery and his skills as both wizard and warrior, Kellen joins the Elves' war councils. Yet he cannot convince the City of his birth that it is in terrible danger. Kellen's sister Idalia, a Wild Mage with great healing ability, has pledged her heart to Jermayan, a proud Elven warrior. Someday Idalia will pay a tragic Price for a world-saving work of Wild Magic, but until then, she will claim any joy life can offer her. Jermayan, who has learned much while fighting at Kellen's side and loving the human Idalia, finds that everything changes when he Bonds with a dragon while rescuing the Elf Prince and becomes the first Elven Mage in a thousand years. Furious at her enemies' success with the dragon, the Demon Queen attacks in force. Light struggles against Dark, like flickering candle flames buried deep in the shadow of Obsidian Mountain.

When Darkness Falls, the third book in The Obsidian Trilogy from Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory Despite a great working of Wild Magic and High Magic that struck at the heart of the Demon Queen's evil plots, Knight-Mage Kellen and his Elven allies are still seen as enemies by the human Mage Council. The Elves and their allies must find a way to shatter the Demons' hold on the human Mages, for without their High Magic, the forces of Light will be destroyed by the forces of Darkness. The Commander of the Armies of Light decides to turn an Elven mine into a refuge for those driven from their homes by the war. Kellen is put in command of the force of engineers and warriors who will fortify the mine and does not learn until it is nearly too late that the caverns are full of Shadowed Elves. Vestakia, the half-human, half-Demon healer, finds that she has begun to be able to read the mind of her Demon father, Crown Prince Zyperis. The Demon Queen, Savilla, is preparing a great sacrifice that will summon He Who Is back to the world and make her the ultimate ruler forever. When Wild Mage Idalia learns of Savilla's plans, she knows there is only one way to prevent the coming of He Who Is. A very different sort of sacrifice must be made.
