From the Publisher:
Thirty years after an accident that left Truth's mother dead and prompted the disappearance of her magician father, the magician's scattered followers rally around a charismatic new leader, forcing Truth to return to the scene of the accident. Reprint. 10,000 first printing.

Thorne Blackburn claimed to have magickal powers, to be able to tap into ancient wisdom.  Others claimed he was a fake, cheating his many followers out of their money and destroying their free well.

The truth may never be known . . . one dark, climactic night thirty years ago, Blackburn’s most powerful ritual went horribly awry, leaving his flock shattered and one woman dead.  Blackburn himself vanished.

Now the scattered remains of Blackburn’s followers have rallied around a new leader, the charismatic Justin Pilgrim.  Hearing this, Thorne Blackburn’s daughter, Truth, returns to the site of her mother’s death and father’s disappearance.  

 Truth has many unanswered questions.  Where are her long-lost half-siblings?  Was her mother’s death an accident or murder?  Is Pilgrim a charlatan, or are his claimed powers real?  If he completes Thorne’s ritual, will someone else die?

The answers will lead Truth to a deeply powerful truth of her own, one that will change her life forever.

This wonderful contemporary fantasy by New York Times bestseller Marion Zimmer Bradley was named “Best Fantasy Novel of the Year” by VOYA when it was first published in 1995. 
Author Bio
Marion Zimmer Bradley
An enormously prolific author, the Albany native Marion Zimmer attended college there from 1946 to 1948. (She eventually received her B.A. from Hardin-Simmons College in 1964). In October, 1949 she married Robert Bradley, changing her name to Marion Zimmer Bradley, a name she kept even after the couple divorced in 1963. Bradley began her science fiction career in 1953 with a short story in Vortex Science Fiction magazine. Her debut novel, FALCONS ON NARABEDLA, was published in 1957. The following year, Bradley wrote the first entry in what was to become one of the best-known--and longest lasting--science fiction series ever. THE PLANET SAVERS introduced readers to the world of Darkover, a forgotten human colony that has been isolated for so long that the inhabitants have developed their own technology, and their genetic structure has altered slightly. This series, which has stretched to more than 20 books by Bradley, has also been used by many other authors as a basis for their own stories. It proved so popular that magazines have been devoted to fan-written stories set in the world. Bradley's own writing has increasingly focused on gender issues--both in the Darkover books and in her many other titles. In 1983's THE MISTS OF AVALONA, a retelling of the legend of King Arthur through the eyes of Morgan Le Fey, Bradley reached the ranks of best-selling authors for the first time. This book also signaled a slight change of focus for Bradley, who branched away from science fiction into fantasy projects, including editing Marion Zimmer Bradley's Fantasy Magazine, a successful quarterly. The sequels to MISTS..., THE FOREST HOUSE and LADY OF AVALON, were also bestsellers. Bradley has written horror and mystery stories, and is also a musician.
