Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The penultimate instalment to her epic fantasy, The Alliance of Light, and volume 7 of the overall series, The Wars of Light and Shadow. She is terrific.

Comparison: Robin Hobb, Terry Goodkind, Katharine Kerr.
Similar this month: None but try Nick Sagan – its SF but the concept is great, or Elizabeth Chadwick for fine historical romance.

If you like Janny Wurts you might also like to read books by Terry Goodkind, Robin Hobb and Katherine Kerr.

Synopsis

Traitor's Knot, Alliance Of Light by Janny Wurts

When half brothers Lysaer and Arithon defeated the Mistwraith its revenge left them cursed to lifelong enmity.

Having conquered the maze and acheived self-redemption, Arithon, Master of Shadow, is now the guest of the formidable sorcerer, Davien the Betrayor. No one knows how his influence will affect Arithonâs recovered mage power, or his newly awakened rogue talent for prescience.

Meanwhile Arithonâs relentless enemies will stop at nothing to acheive his downfall. The Koriani enchantresses are determined to make him their captive and their pawn. And as the Alliance of Light fanatics regroup after their defeat, the core of their priesthood now stands corrupted by a dark cabal who plot to enslave their leader, Lysaer, and use the Mistwraithâs curse as their own private weapon to break the worldâs order.

The sorcerers of the Fellowship compact are sorely beset and the clans are counting their ruinous losses. Arithon, who holds their last hope of survival, chooses the most dangerous course: heart and mind he dedicates himself to avoiding killing, though allies and enemies muster for war, single-mindedly blind to the consequences.
