In the era of The Hundred Kingdoms, a time of war and unrest, King Carolin of Hastur and his friend Keeper Varzil Ridenow work selflessly to put an end to the destruction caused by the long range weapons of the magical matrix Towers. But Eduin Deslucido-who once called Carolin brother-has been consumed with a vengeful rage, and will stop at nothing to destroy the king and his plan for peace.
A little cutting might have benefited A Flame in Hali: Book Three of the Clingfire Trilogy, by Marion Zimmer Bradley and Deborah J. Ross, but fans should find this tale of incessant war among the Hundred Kingdoms a worthy addition to Bradley's original Darkover series. The menacing dragon on the jacket will cue high fantasy fans.
