Newly handfasted to the dark-haired archmage Lord Dal, Ellspeth and her husband escort his mother to her ancestral lands. While Dal searches for Bashim, a rogue mage, mercenaries under his control attack. Dal’s mother is severely wounded and Ellspeth is captured. Her sole hope for escape is Nobyn, an untrained wizard going through the throes of awakening magic. However, Nobyn is Bashim’s apprentice and under the mage’s total control.
Dal must make an impossible decision whether to rescue his wife, cure his mother, or thwart Bashim’s plans. More than who lives or dies is at stake. He might be able to live with his guilt over the death of a loved one, but could he survive killing the future of magic.
With your indulgence, I’ll share a few words about Windmaster Legacy,
** Hope there are more adventures in this well crafted world.**
** Fascinating story and wonderful characters make for a great read **
** The magic of the fantasies Henderson weaves will stay with you forever.**
** Don’t miss this beautifully written, powerfully evocative sequel.**
And in the vein of showing insight, an introduction to Lord Dal’s softer side.
By ninth hour, Dal was ready to throw a cloaking spell over himself and Ellspeth and disappear into the night. The happy glow on her face persuaded him to resist the impulse. Instead, he contented himself with the promise of things to come and stolen moments with her in the shadowed corners of the garden’s winding paths. Eventually, the gathering thinned as the crewmembers of Sea Falcon and Windmaster and most of the other guests returned to their respective ships or homes. Dal swore he had met or talked to every council member of all the major guilds and every officer whose ship was in port.
Dal and Ellspeth leave the wedding with their friend the King, making their excuses and covering their escape. But you’ll have to read the book for the proposal and ceremony that led up to the celebration… and what follows after they exit the garden.
Talk soon, Helen
