"Well written and enthralling fantasy"
The kingdom of Morenia ruled by King Hal is under siege by
a fleet of Liantine ships blockading the harbor and a
Briantan army surrounding the city. A battering ram is
being used to open the gates to the city while the army of
Morenia is getting ready to fight. Their efforts are
doomed by traitors from within the castleso King Hal, his
wife, Rani Trader and a few trusted allies flee through a
secret passage shown to them by a Touched woman.
The Fellowship of Jair, a secret cabal of men and women
located in every kingdom in the world engineered The
King's downfall because he chose to oppose them. The
fugitives flee to Sarmonia where they hope to have the aid
of the King and his army to win back Hal's throne. The
Fellowship gets words of the group's whereabouts and make
plans to kill them but Hal is a strong spokesman for his
cause and Rani has powers that she doesn't know about that
could change the course of battle.
This is the fifth and last book of this well written and
enthralling fantasy series and it is one of the most
rewarding and poignant works in the collection. All the
loose ends are tied up, the ending is everything the
reader could hope for but there is also sadness in THE
GLASSWRIGHTS' MASTER as good people die because of the
evil of a cabal of power hungry traitors. Mindy L. Klasky
proves she's a world class fantasist by her ability to
make the audience believe in the existence of the world
where Morenia is located.
