9780002247559: The Lightstone (The EA Cycle)

On the island continent of Ea it is a dark time of chaos and war. Morjin, immortal fallen angel and Lord of Lies, seeks to enslave the entire world. His dreaded assassins are everywhere and land after land falls under his evil power.

The one thing that has the potential to destroy him is an object that has been lost for ages: the fabulous Lightstone that legend tells was crafted by the ancient Star people. A call is sent out by one of the major rulers still free of Morjin's grip to all those who oppose the dreaded sorcerer. It is nothing less than a quest to find the Lightstone and give Men hope after ages of despair. It is a quest that none have seen the like of in ten generations. And most believe is doomed to fail.

What hero is man enough, brave enough...or foolish enough to embark on such a mad quest?

Valashu Elahad, the seventh and youngest Valeri prince of the royal house of Mesh is such a man. With his faithful companion Maram by his side Valashu will journey to the farthest reaches of Ea to try and reclaim this mystical object, to free the world of Morjin's evil and save his people from sure destruction. Along the way he will discover truths about friendship, courage...and love.

And the terrible truth about the being who threatens to sunder his world.

About the Author:

David Zindell's short story "Shanidar" was a prize-winning entry in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future contest. In addition to The Lightstone, he is the author of several critically acclaimed novels: Neverness, The Broken God, and The Wild. He resides in Colorado.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Zindell, a reputable writer of better-than-average fantasy, here begins a saga that, substantially revised from its original British edition, may prove his breakthrough to a larger audience. Seasoned fantasy readers will recall Tolkien as they read of the island continent Ea coming under the power of the fallen dark angel Morjin. All Morjin needs to rule forever is the Lightstone, a talisman so long lost that no one has any idea of where it might be. Most who seek it don't come back. Enter Prince Valashu, who as the seventh son in a royal household is somewhat at loose ends, and his companion-squire-whatever, Maram, who, of course, set out to find the Lightstone. En route, Maram becomes more than a sidekick, and Valashu encounters people and situations the likes of which he never met while living in the palace. What direction this saga will take is so much guesswork at this stage, but it seems that it will be character-centered and include a wide range of emotions and motivations as Valashu and Maram pursue their classic quest.
