The Enduring Flame

Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory

Tor Books

In the Enduring Flame trilogy, Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory have given readers a new view of the complex and fascinating world they originally created for the Obsidian Trilogy.  Jumping one thousand years in time, Lackey and Mallory have told the compelling story of Harrier Gillain, the first Knight-Mage in a thousand years; Tiercel Rolfort, the first High Mage in hundreds of years; and Shaiara, the young leader of a desert tribe who takes both boys under her wing but has a special affection for Harrier. 

These three young people are their world’s main defense against the evil called up by the rogue Wild Mage, Bisochim. Bisochim’s conviction that he was restoring the balance was shattered the moment Ahairan took her first breath.  Now, in The Phoenix Transformed, Bisochim joins forces with Harrier and Tiercel, and the three mages search desperately for a way to destroy Ahairan as she sends her magical forces against them and the desert nomads under their protection. 

With more than one twist in the telling, centering on a magic-plagued journey across a blistering desert, The Phoenix Transformed is the stunning conclusion to The Enduring Flame.

REVIEWS

Praise for The Phoenix Transformed

“Shaiara is a plucky and resourceful character, rising above the tropes common to multicultural fantasy.  Readers can rest assured that Lackey and Mallory will not let them down.”--SFRevu.com on The Phoenix Endangered

“Entertaining. . . .Highly readable.”--Publishers Weekly on The Phoenix Unchained

“As entertaining as the first trilogy. Tiercel and Harrier are great foils for each other, and their friendship rings true.  A thoughtfully created world, engaging characters, and a tighter plot than many fantasy epics make this a must-have.”--VOYA on The Phoenix Unchained
