There is a deep history in the Osserian Saga, from the opening of the prologue to the richness of his wizards. David Forbes has created a rich world that would do well under further exploration … Forbes tears down a number of the clichés of the genre and reveals hidden truths behind what seem to be typical elements of an Epic Fantasy story.
Gerin’s victory over the Storm King brings peace to Khedesh, but only for a time. Some within his own kingdom conspire against him, determined to prevent a wizard from ascending to the throne.
Invaders from across the sea appear on their shores in vast numbers. The Havalqa seek an ancient, mysterious magic known as the Words of Making, the literal power of creation spoken at the beginning of time to create the world and all things in it.
The Havalqa are also seeking Gerin Atreyano, who they believe holds the key to finding the Words. The invaders have power that can thwart even the magic of an amber wizard and the might to crush a continent.
Gerin and those he holds most dear must do everything they can to prevent the Havalqa from achieving their goals, otherwise the world as they know it will come to an end.
