Sea of Crystal, Sea of Glass

When faced a choice between with the unthinkable and the impossible, choose the impossible.

All Einur Landman has left in the world are his flock of sheep and his beloved little sister, and he cares about nothing except protecting her from the Illyrië. But when Einur is chosen to become the next sacrifice he must flee, leaving Lody behind. Escaping into the wild, he learns that there is one way to defeat the Illyrië and their evil cult, a way to keep Lody safe forever. Now Einur must choose between the unthinkable – Lody’s probable death – and the impossible – finding a long-lost king.

In his quest across country from his mountain village to the edge of the sea, everything Einur believes will be tested. For Lody’s sake, can he make the final crucial choice and stand firm to the bitter end? Or will his courage fail in the darkest hour?


A legend that tells of a star…

When Pluriel is accidentally reminded of an old prophecy, he and three companions begin the long journey to Nevarra Swamp. Their mission? A nearly hopeless attempt to recapture the Sword of the Star, stolen centuries ago by Jalavak. This Sword is the only weapon which can defeat the Dark Lord, for he was wounded by it in the war of the Valintari at the dawn of time. But what can Pluriel, Ringard, Galdore and Tristal do alone? For if the prophecy is to be fulfilled, the Star itself must fall from the sky – and how could such a thing come to pass?
