Led by Loethar, an ambitious and ruthless tyrant, a terrifying army of mercenaries and renegades from the great southern steppes threatens to overwhelm the Kingdom of Penraven - the army has already overthrown its two neighbouring realms and left a trail of devastation and broken lives in their wake. Penraven is Loethar's most desired prize. Driven by dreams of empire, fuelled by his increasing obsession with magic, Loethar's plan to overthrow King Brennus of Penraven, 9th of the Valisars, was cemented the hour he learned that Brennus possessed the power of coercion. All Valisar heirs have been blessed down the ages with the sinister ability to bend people entirely to their will. Loethar is convinced that if he consumes these empowered people he will then be imbued with their skills and magics...and be unstoppable.

Descrizione libro Harper Voyager, 2008. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. Dust Jacket Included. New & dispatched within 1 working day ________ The first instalment of a thrilling new epic fantasy trilogy from a star of the genre. From out of the East they spread like a merciless plague ¿ destroying kingdom after kingdom and the sovereigns who had previously mocked the warlord Loethar and his barbarian horde. Now only one land remains unconquered ¿ the largest, richest, and most powerful realm of the Denova Set¿ Penraven. The Valisar royals of Penraven face certain death, for the savage tyrant Loethar covets what they alone possess: the fabled Valisar Enchantment, an irresistible power to coerce, which will belong to Loethar once every Valisar has been slain. But the last hope of the besieged kingdom is being sent in secret from his doomed home, in the company of a single warrior. The future of Penraven now rests on the shoulders of the young Crown Prince Leonel who, though untried and untested in the ways of war, must survive brutality and treachery in order to claim the Valisar throne.
