Riddle of the Seven Realms - art by Geoff Taylor


A river and it's banks glow in the distance with some low lying mist. A mountain in the background coming out of the temperature inversion. A figure in blue a man raising his arms an arc of flames burns and a white light bows around him. A shooting star passes the moon in the starry sky.

Synopsis for Original Title

The worst fact about the mess they were in was Kestrel knew it was his own fault. He shouldn't have tried to trick the sorceress Phoebe with a load of worthless wood, or compounded the error by trying to trick the other wizards of their gold. So they were being pursued by eleven angry wizard and uncounted imps, but even so it wasn't fair.
