Details: Product Description For the first time in an omnibus, this duology chronicles the adventures of naturalist Tristram Flattery as he voyages to discover the lost history of magic in a world where reason and science reign. The Age of Mages is over, and all the secrets of their magical arts are thought to be lost to the world. There are even those who suspect that the last of the great Mages spent their final years scrupulously eradicating all traces of their craft from the pages of history--insuring that their art will never be practiced again. It is the dawn of a new era: an age of reason, science, and exploration, and Tristam Flattery is one of its most promising young naturalists. But when Tristam is summoned to the royal court of Farrland to try to revitalize a failing species of plant which seems to have mysterious, almost magical, medicinal properties--a plant without which, he is told, the aging king will surely die--he soon realizes that he has been drawn into the heart of a political struggle which spans generations, a conflict which threatens the very foundations of his civilization. And before long, Tristam is caught in the grip of a destiny which will lead him to the ends of the known world--on a voyage of discovery that has more to do with magic than with science.... Review Praise for the Moontide and Magic Rise duology: “The compelling first volume in a series titled Moontide and Magic Rise bodes well for the ones to follow.... A spectacular beginning of what is sure to be a successful fantasy series.” — Publishers Weekly “The first book of Sean Russell’s new series, Moontide and Magic Rise, is good—surprisingly good, compelling, and intriguing.... It’s great fun.” — Locus “This book is complex and well-written.” — Kliatt “Reading World without End is akin to perusing a narrative by an explorer like Marco Polo or Ferdinand Magellan. It has that true feeling to it. Sean Russell methodically reveals details until the reader has a full picture of this world and its peoples.” — Starlog “Tristam is an excellent hero who struggles not only with external forces out to do him harm, but with his own internal demons, which , even if they leave him alive at the end of this nightmare adventure, will leave him forever changed, forever haunted.” — Affaire de Coeur About the Author Sean Russell was born in Toronto, Ontario in 1952, and published his first fantasy novel, The Initiate Brother in 1991. His influence in the fantasy world comes from J. R. R. Tolkien, and knew he wanted to be a writer since the age of ten. Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved. One The drama unfolding in the field below seemed so improbable that it could have been nothing more than two groups of players preparing a performance— the duel that would bring down the curtain on the first act. “I’ve forgotten my field glass. Hawkins? Can you see what they’re doing?” The driver had been pacing, almost silently, back and forth between his team and the door to the carriage, but he stopped now and shielded his eyes with a callused hand. “It is not yet clear, sir. They remain standing in their separate groups, and no one is stepping forward.” The driver stayed in his place for a few seconds and when it appeared that his employer would have no fur­ther questions, at least for a moment, he returned to whispering to the gray mare and gelding. The man who watched shifted on the seat of his carriage and realized he was gripping his cane so tightly that the joints in his fingers had begun to ache. The gestural language of the theater was well known to him, and what he saw transpiring on the field bore the unmistakable signs of unfolding tragedy. Signs he had seen often these past months. The emotions that a pending tragedy engendered were also very familiar: the overwhelming sense of helplessness; the firm knowledge that the small justice of men was of little consequence on the larger stage; and then the growing horror.
