On Order



The Mage Alamar has never forgotten the life debt he owes to Farrix, one of the legendary Hidden Ones of Mithgar, who keep to themselves and avoid contact with ordinary humans. So when Farrix's mate, the Lady Jinnarin, appears on Alamar's doorstep, he fears the worst.

Months ago, Farrix vanished--and Jinnarin has been plagued by nightmares of him being in danger ever since. To find him, Alamar and Jinnarin must embark on a journey across the sea to confront a master of dark magic preparing to open a portal between Mithgar and a destructive Dark God....

Library Journal Review

Recurring nightmares send the diminutive (12-inch-tall) Lady Jinnarin in search of allies to help her find her missing mate, even though such an undertaking will involve revealing the existence of her kind--the Pysks, or Hidden Ones--to the world. McKiernan continues to delve into the land of Mithgar's history in a heroic adventure that features an endearing protagonist. Fans of The Eye of the Hunter ( LJ 9/15/92) will be particularly drawn to this related work, which has a place in most fantasy collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
