The path, slanting up through young forest to gray rock and old trees, became a hollow, leaf-filled track at its end. (from the first line)
Child of Wizardry

Tristen is both more and less than a man. A summoning, a shaping, he was brought to life by a wizard, to serve a king yet to be crowned.

Now the wizard is dead: a united Ylesuin, and a peace this land has never known. Cefwyn needs his only friend, this young man of mysterious origins who is more brother than vassal. He relies on Tristen, and trusts him though he knows not why, as he plans the war that will bring his dream to pass. . . or bring ruin upon them all.

The eagerly awaited sequel to her acclaimed "Fortress in the Eye of Time," C.J. Cherryh's newest high fantasy triumph is an epic saga of destiny and intrigue in a magical world as wondrous, and as real, as our own.

Author Bio
C. J. Cherryh
After graduating from the University of Oklahoma-Norman in 1964 with a B. A. in Latin and from Johns Hopkins University in 1966 with an M. A. in classics, Carolyn Janice Cherry taught Latin and ancient history in the Oklahoma public school system for 11 years, until 1976. She began writing while still a teacher, her first story was published in 1968. Soon afterwards, at the suggestion of publisher Donald Wollheim, founder of D.A.W. books, she adopted the name C. J. Cherryh. She has since written more than 50 short stories as well as more than 50 novels, both as stand-alones and as parts of over 10 different series. She has won three Hugo Awards--one for her story "Cassandra", in 1979, and one each for the novels DOWNBELOW STATION, in 1982, and CYTEEN, in 1988--and been nominated more than 40 (!) times in the influential Locus Poll, which is based on ballots submitted by Locus magazine's readers, who are comprised of professional writers, fans, and industry personnel.
