The entire world is kept in a delicate balance under the supervision of the Wizard Lord. It is his duty to govern lightly and protect his domain, but if he strays from the way of the just, then it is up to the Chosen to intercede.

The Chosen are the Leader, the Seer, the Swordsman, the Beauty, the Thief, the Scholar, the Archer, and the Speaker, magically infused mortal individuals who, for the term of their service, have only one function: to remove an errant Wizard Lord, whether by persuasion or execution.

Breaker, a young man of ambition, has just taken the mantle of Swordsman from its former bearer. Never did he think that he would be called to duty so quickly or that the balance of power that existed in his world would be so precarious.

He has a duty to perform.

And a world to save.

But in Lawrence Watt-Evans' The Wizard Lord, why does he still have doubts, not just about himself, but about the entire balance of power?

Praise for The Wizard Lord

For The Wizard Lord

“This is straightforward, old-fashioned sword and sorcery, though a little more philosophical than most.”—Publishers Weekly

“Well handled, with low-key surprises.” —Kirkus Reviews


For Lawrence Watt-Evans

“This fast-paced novel, full of magical people and mysterious forces, goes beyond pure entertainment to confront many real issues. The characters grapple with prejudice, fear, and the ideas of personal and societal responsibilities.”--VOYA on Night of Madness
 
“Remarkably inventive.”—Kirkus on Dragon Weather
 
“Combines swashbuckling fantasy with serious themes of self-sacrifice and personal courage in an adventure that belongs in most libraries.”--Library Journal on The Dragon Society
 
“Watt-Evans is a veteran tale spinner who has created an epic tale in a world that is as multi-faceted as the scales on a dragon’s back. With every step that Arlian takes, Watt-Evans leaves his readers wanting to know what will happen next.”—Tulsa World on Dragon Weather
