Book Details

Darkenesses, book two of the Corean Chronicles, continues the epic fantasy series by L. E. Modesitt, Jr., author of the bestselling Saga of Recluce. Enter this new and exciting world.

Millennia ago, a magical disaster caused the fall of a civilization, the end of a golden age. New civilizations emerged from the ancient destruction and chaos, knowing little of the past or the disaster. Corus today is a world of contending countries, humans, and supernatural creatures. It is a place of magical powers, and of a few people who are talented enough to use them.

Alusius, a captain of the Twenty-first Company, faces new challenges, both military and magical. A would-be conqueror has somehow revived sorcerous creatures of legend to assist in his crusade to reunite the continent under his rule. Neither the officers above him nor the men under him know it, but Alusius's Talent is their only hope for victory, or even survival.

In The News

“The gritty details of this world make it as real as any in science fiction. As usual, Mr. Modesitt's sense of power makes the fantastic background more plausible.” —Philadelphia Press & Review on The Spellsong War

“One of the premier voices in fantasy . . . Modesitt is a fabulous world-builder who once again creates a milieu so compelling that it seems like we actually go there with the plucky heroine....” —Romantic Times on The Soprano Sorceress

“The underlying theme of this volume is stewardship and its costs. Modesitt shows how Anna must change her assumptions about herself, what she will and will not do, to be true to the responsibilities she has taken on as regent. Darksong Rising is another of Modesitt's deeply philosophical novels disguised as an action-adventure, military fantasy. This title is highly recommended for all young adult collections.” —VOYA on Darksong Rising
