The Fortress of Glass is the first in the Crown of the Isles trilogy, which will conclude Lord of the Isles. A true trilogy, the action extends over a whole three-book arc. The Fortress of Glass begins the story of how the new kingdom of the Isles is finally brought into being by the group of heroes and heroines who have been central to all the books in the series. Prince Garric, heir to the throne of the Isles; his consort, Liane; his sister, Sharina; her Herculean sweetheart, Cashel; his sister Ilna, with her adopted child, Merota; and piratical Chalcus, her beloved, all journey across the seas on giant triremes filled with soldiers and diplomats to the small kingdoms of the Isles. Their mission is to confirm the succession of Garric and to subdue, if necessary, any local rulers too fond of their own kingship to pledge fealty to Garric.All this happens when the powers of magic in the Isles have flooded to a thousand-year peak, and even local magicians can perform powerful spells normally beyond their control. Magical forces intervene from all angles to keep them apart, scattering the band of characters to different worlds and times where strange dangers threaten them and the reunification of the Isles. Separately and together, they must fight their way back to the same time and place to combat the mysterious and supernatural menace of The Green Woman.
