The Mirror of Worlds : The Crown of the Isles
The Mirror of Worlds is the second volume in the Crown of the Isles trilogy, which will conclude the epic Lord of the Isles series. A true trilogy, the action extends over the whole three-book arc.The Fortress of Glass began the tale 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, Una; her adopted child, Merota; and piratical Chalcus, her beloved. Traveling on giant triremes filled with soldiers and diplomats, they are on a journey to the small kingdoms of the Isles 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.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. Fantastic forces from all angles threaten, trying to keep them apart and unable to continue the reunification of the Isles.
