The Mirror of Worlds

The Second Volume of 'The Crown of the Isles'

Lord of the Isles (Volume 8)

David Drake

Tor Fantasy

The Mirror of the Worlds is the second in the Crown of the Isles trilogy, which will conclude the epic Lord of the Isles series.
 
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, and his sister Ilna. 
 
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 Garric and his companions apart to thwart the reunification of the Isles.
 
Now the world itself has suffered a magical upheaval. The ocean has receded and the Isles have become the higher ground of a newly formed continent. But the new continent is a patchwork of geography from the distant past and future, peopled by creatures from all times and places. Garric and his companions must now struggle for the survival of humanity.

REVIEWS

Praise for The Mirror of Worlds

Praise for The Fortress of Glass
 
“Solidly crafted fantasy.”--Publishers Weekly
 
“In a refreshing change from other books in the genre, Drake has a light touch with his characters, making them believable and serious without becoming overly ponderous or melodramatic. He employs the standard epic fantasy tropes of action, sorcery and romance to great effect in this exciting, compelling read.”--Romantic Times BOOKreviews
 
“Drake possesses every skill necessary to make this story a thoroughly absorbing, even to new readers. Those who have sailed with him through the preceding two Isles trilogies ought to eagerly demand it.” --Booklist
