From back of book: Third novel in The Silver Wyrm cycle, The Shadow Isle weaves together many of the story strands of this fantasy work, paving the way for the final volume, The Silver Mage.
The wild Northlands hold many secrets, among them the mysterious dweomer island of Haen Marn, the mountain settlements of Dwarveholt, and the fortified city of Cerr Cawnen, built long ago by escaping bondmen from Deverry. Thanks to the Horsekin, who continue to push their religious crusade south towards the borders of the kingdom, the human beings of Deverry and their elven allies have realized the fate of the Northlands lies tangled with their own. Although the dwarven race holds strong, the island of Haen Marn has vanished and Cerr Cawnen seems doomed. Only through the magic of Dallandra and Valandario and the intervention of the powerful dragons, Arzosah and ROri, do the allied forces have a hope of mastering the secrets that can save the Northlands and themselves form conquests.
