The Fourth Book of the Corean Chronicles
Author: L. E. Modesitt, Jr.
L. E. Modesitt, Jr., author of the bestselling Saga of Recluce fantasy series, opens the door into a marvelous new world.
Millennia ago, a magical disaster caused the fall of a great worldwide civilization, the end of a golden age. New civilizations have fought their way up from the ancient destruction and chaos, knowing little of the lost world that preceded them or the details of its fall. Corus today is a world of contending countries, of humans, but also of strange animals and supernatural creatures. It is a place of magical powers, and of a few people who are talented enough to use them.
The Myrmidons of Justice command the skies riding their fearsome pteridons. Alector Dainyl is the fourth highest ranking military officer of the Duarchy. Captain Mykel is a young officer potentially Talented and unaware that, should he ever discover that Talent, his life is forfeit. Rebellion spirals out of control, spurred by treachery, corruption, and greed.
