In this painting by Geoff Taylor there are two figures, women with magic powers, in black cloaks they stand on the sea shore amid rocks. In the background flies a silver dragon in the twilight of a silvery moon. A castle is on an island beyond.



Synopsis for Original Title

The Shadow Isle. The wild Northlands hold many secrets, the mysterious island of Haen Marn, the mountain settlements of Dwarvolt, and the fortified city of Cerr Cawnen, built long ago by escaping bondmen from Deverry itself. As the Horsekin continue to push their religious crusade toward the borders of the kingdom, the humans of Deverry and their elven allies realize that the fate of the Northlands lies tangled with their own. Only the magic of Dallandra and Valandario and the might of the powerful dragons, Arzosah and Rori, can reveal the secrets that may save the Northlands from conquest.
