THE FOURTH BOOK OF THE SPELLSONG CYCLE
Continuing the story he began with the first three books in The Spellsong Cycle, L.E. Modesitt, Jr. turns his attention to the Sorceress Anna’s protégé, Secca, in THE SHADOW SORCERESS.
Anna, the heroine of The Spellsong War (Tor, 1999) was a singer from Earth who brought a new level of magic to the world of Erde through her knowledge of music and singing. Considered to be the power behind the throne, Anna was able to protect her young king for years. But when Anna dies unexpectedly, her successor, Secca, is thrust into a position of power before her training is complete. The kingdom of Defaulk is in a state of unrest and a possible war is on the horizon. To make matters worse, the Sea Priests have laid a naval siege on Nordwei using their new drumming magic. Now Secca must gather her resources and put her still-developing magical powers to the test to continue Anna’s work and set things right again.Buy this Book at Amazon | Buy this Book at BN.com | Buy this Book at Powells
