"Intricately layered and exotic" ~Robin Hobb THE RYEL SAGA: A TALE OF LOVE AND MAGIC joins in a single volume the critically acclaimed duology WYSARD and LORD BROTHER. For almost half of his twenty-six years Ryel Mirai has studied the Art in a bleak citadel on a barren plain. He returns to the World to rediscover the long-lost spell that will release his mentor from the wraithworld of the Void, but a malignant sorcerer likewise imprisoned has enlisted the aid of Ryel's strongest rival to find the spell first. Amid dangers, joys and temptations, Ryel encounters unlikely allies and unforeseen enemies, and learns that he may well gain all that he wishes...although perhaps not as he wished it. Note: The current emended second edition, revised March 2013, supersedes all previous versions of THE RYEL SAGA: A TALE OF LOVE AND MAGIC, and should be regarded as the standard text of the book. Carolyn Kephart's other works include the contemporary urban fantasy/magic realism novel QUEEN OF TIME and the short story collection PENTANGLE: FIVE POINTED FABLES.
