But Prisms never last, and Guile knows exactly how long he has left to live: Five years to achieve five impossible goals. But when Guile discovers he has a son, born in a far kingdom after the war that put him in power, he must decide how much he's willing to pay to protect a secret that could tear his world apart.

Reviews for The Black Prism
While this new adventure has all it takes to be worth following, it fell a bit short of my expectations. It is, though, wonderfully inventive within the genre which is no mean feat considering the books that have recently come out. The religious system and phylosophy are spot on and there is the feeling of anticipation about the destiny of Kip the ******* but the characters are self-indulgent and self-conscious to an extent where they lose their integrity. All in all, it is a good book but the second part had better offer much more to keep me reading. by Georgi Petkov
