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.
