In The Phoenix Endangered, budding Knight-Mage Harrier and self-taught High Mage Tiercel find themselves facing a terrible danger--a Wildmage gone rogue--as an army builds amid the deserts far to the south of Armethalieh. With the Elves nearly all gone and the High Mages the stuff of legend, it is up to Harrier and Tiercel, plus an adventurous young woman from the desert wastelands, to stop a war in which the Darkness might very well quench the Light. From official release/information:
Product Description: In The Phoenix Endangered, second in The Enduring Flame, Tiercel, a budding High Mage, and Harrier, a reluctant Knight-Mage, develop greater power—and learn of the evils of war when they see the devastation caused by the fanatical armies of the Wild Mage Bisochim.
The desert tribes people led by young Shaiara flee Bisochim's evil, seeking a legendary oasis deep in the desert—a refuge that may hold the key to stopping Bisochim and preserving the Balance between Light and Darkness . . . or that may be the cause of Light's ultimate downfall.
