Recalled from the brink of death by the Grand Lar, the wizard Beneban is set upon a quest. The black magic that bewitched him has been banished, but he cannot trust his own powers. To protect those dear to him, he leaves his family and his one true love to lead the army. Forsaken and confused, Laraynia returns to her enchanted Forest to raise her bewitching children while a brilliant baby wizard is nurtured at The Great Shrine. Weary warriors, home at last, raise a new generation. But Ztavin’s old malevolence, feeding on death and blood, spreads terror again and spawns a scion that sets Torgarde ablaze. With his enchanted sword, feline companion, and faithful friends by his side, Beneban takes arms against the fiendish power that threatens Larlion. When all seems lost, can the combined strength of Forest, children, music, wizard, and automaton triumph against the power of death and darkness? "Great books, kept my interest from page one. But now I have to wait for the next one (sad face). I love this series." -- Amazon customer review for book 4, Wizard Search.
