After the events of Legacies and Darkness, Alucius's return to the side of his expectant wife is interrupted by mysterious enemies who force him to return to active duty, during which he must stop a religious rebellion, destroy ancient weapons, and prevent the enslavement of the world of Corus. Reprint.
Scepters, book three of the Corean Chronicles, continues the epic fantasy series by L. E. Modesitt, Jr., author of the bestselling Saga of Recluce. Enter this new and exciting world.
Millennia ago, a magical disaster caused the fall of a civilization, the end of a golden age. New civilizations emerged from the ancient destruction and chaos, knowing little of the past or the disaster. Corus today is a world of contending countries, humans, and supernatural creatures. It is a place of magical powers, and of a few people who are talented enough to use them.
Alusius has been pulled into another war. He must first quell a strange religiously-inspired rebellion and then find a way to destroy the powerful weapons of ancient design, again being used by the forces of Madrien. Now a different, covert enemy threatens, but his talent may not be enough to tip the balance.
