About the Author

James Clemens was born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1961. With his three brothers and three sisters, he was raised in the Midwest and rural Canada. He attended the University of Missouri and graduated with a doctorate in veterinary medicine in 1985. The lure of ocean, sun, and new horizons eventually drew him to the West Coast, where he established his veterinary practice in Sacramento, California. He is also the author of Wit'ch Fire and the upcoming novel Wit'ch War.

Reviews

Clemens continues his carefully constructed epic fantasy adventure (begun in Wit'ch Fire) about Elena, a young farm girl destined to be the "wit'ch" of ancient prophecy who will save her land from all-consuming evil, or die trying. The novel opens with Elena and her companions setting off for the legendary lost city of A'loa Glen, to use the magic of the Blood Diary hidden there to defeat the dreaded Dark Lord. A motley and fantastic crew accompanies Elena, including an immoral warrior with a dark past, a half-breed og're, a silver-haired elv'in, a tree-loving nyphai and a pair of si'luran shape-shifters. As Elena struggles to control the magic of the scarlet Rose on her right hand, the adventurers are beset by minions of the Dark LordÄand by internal treachery. Meanwhile, at A'loa Glen, Elena's brother, Joach, snatched by a demon in the preceding novel, has been magically enslaved to Greshym, who serves the Dark Lord by posing as one of the good clerics sworn to protect the lost city from evil. Another side plot introduces Sy-wen, a young ocean-dwelling mer'ai destined to fulfill an ancient prophesy herself: summoning A'loa Glen's protector, the mighty dragon Ragnar'k. There's a lot of character buildingÄmuch of it expertÄbut a paucity of action in this installment. Hopefully Clemens will light a fire under the plot in the series' next entry. (May)

Hunted by the Dark Lord because of the wit'ch mark she bears, Elena journeys with a group of trusted companions in search of a lost city reported to contain a way to defeat her enemy. At the same time, a young woman of the sea embarks on an arduous trek that leads her to a rendezvous with prophecyÄand with Elena. Clemens (Wit'ch Fire, LJ 6/15/98) embellishes traditional high fantasy conventions with his own unique touches to create a vivid tale of a young woman's battle against the forces of evil. A strong addition to most fantasy collections. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

"Clemens has constructed a world of magic that's never been seen before, with a cast of beings who are so engaging and entrancing that you never want the story to end."--John Saul
