Book 3 In the Silver Mage Series.
The Prophet was gone, but trouble brewed in a far off land.
A trouble that was ancient before the world changed and that even the greatest wizard in the world might... More > find overwhelming.
When foreign raiders take what Kastel, the Winter King loves, he and Dante chase them across the sea and find themselves in a distant, brutal land, at the mercy of forces that put them at a distinct disadvantage. Strangers in a strange land they discover a power that has lain dormant since before the Pharaohs ruled. And that power, once awakened devours everything in its path.
It might even be a match for Dante Epherian, a fact that disagrees no small amount with the Lord of Fire. But he has distractions, chief among them, a sudden awareness of his former protégé, the Winter King.< Less
With the allied forces of the south turned against them by the mysterious and powerful Prophet, the Dante Epherian and his arcane allies take refuge in the wintry kingdom of Sta-Veron, the seat of... More > the Kastel's power.
But having lost his chance at subsuming Dante's power, the Prophet turns his focus on destroying Dante's circle of friends and taking as his new host, the Winter King himself.
Unless Dante can prevent the Prophet from adding Kastel's considerable power to his own, the world is doomed.
