Fugitive Prince (The Alliance of Light, Book One)
HarperPrism (reprint, paperback, 704 pages, $6.50 US/$8.50 Can)
Publication date: October, 1998 (First Printing: 1997)

The third part of The Wars of Light and Shadow -- which began with Curse of the Mistwraith, Ships of Merior, and Warhost of Vastmark -- begins in this, the fourth volume, the first book of The Alliance of Light and prequel to The Grand Conspiracy, coming in summer 1999 (don't ask me, I can't figure out the sequence either). In any event, if you like your fantasy with serious heft and substance, Wurts is your lady. "With the appalling destruction of the Vastmark warhost, recoil and grief reshape the balance of power in the Five Kingdoms. Two half brothers, cursed by a Mistwraith to a lifelong enmity, are set into violent conflict: Lysaer, Prince of the Light, and Arithon, Master of Shadow. And there are those between who will stop at nothing to fulfill secret desires and consolidate their own power..."

The continuation of the Wars of Light and Shadow. "In one terrible hour the War Host in Vastmark falls to the forces of Shadow. A scorched-earth campaign of burnings sweeps the land to burn out the practice of sorcery. Soon it is learned that the Shadow Master is the cipher on which the Fellowship Sorcerer's future affairs must turn--and thus the key to their return to power."
HarperPrism paperback
The climax of the Cycle of Fire trilogy. As Scait, Demonlord of Shadowfane, uses his captured human talent for conquest, his machinations raise an even greater threat -- one that could hurl the world to destruction and end mankind's chance of reclaiming freedom among the stars.
