Epic fantasy in the tradition of Trudi Canavan, Fiona McIntosh and Robert Jordan. StarMan concludes the first Tencendor trilogy with an unexpected and glorious climax. Weakened by their terrible encounter with Borneheld's men, Axis and his army are forced to march north as Gorgrael breaks through Jervois Landing and invades Tencendor with ice and terror. But under a sky black with Gryphon, Axis discovers that he's confronting a seemingly invincible enemy. As the Prophecy of the Destroyer hurtles towards fulfilment, Azhure and StarDrifter unravel the mysteries of the Island of Mist and Memory, where they finally confront WolfStar; Faraday moves east to replant the ancient forests of Tencendor; and the Sentinels begin a lonely journey planned for them thousands of years ago. Enveloping all looms the promise of treachery - treachery that threatens to strike into the very heart of Axis and Azhure's family.

About the Author:

Sara Douglass was born in Penola, South Australia, and spent her early working life as a nurse. Rapidly growing tired of starched veils, mitred corners and irascible anaesthetists, she worked her way through three degrees at the University of Adelaide, culminating in a PhD in early modern English history. Sara Douglass currently teaches medieval history of La Trobe University, Bendigo and escapes academia through her writing.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Starman
The Prophecy of the DestroyerA day will come when born will be Two babes whose blood will tie them. That born to Wing and Horn will hate The one they call the StarMan. Destroyer! rises in the north And drives his Ghostmen south; Defenseless lie both flesh and field Before Gorgrael's ice. To meet this threat you must release The StarMan from his lies, Revive Tencendor, fast and sure Forget the ancient war, For if Plough, Wing and Horn can't find The bridge to understanding, Then will Gorgrael earn his name And bring Destruction hither. StarMan, listen, heed me well, Your power will destroy you If you should wield it in the fray 'Ere these prophecies are met: The Sentinels will walk abroad 'Til power corrupt their hearts; A child will turn her head and cry Revealing ancient arts; A wife will hold in joy at night The slayer of her husband; Age-old souls, long in cribs, Will sing o'er mortal land; The remade dead, fat with child Will birth abomination; A darker power will prove to be The father of salvation. Then waters will release bright eyes To form the Rainbow Scepter.StarMan, listen, for I know That you can wield the scepter To bring Gorgrael to his knees And break the ice asunder. But even with the power in hand Your pathway is not sure: A Traitor from within your camp Will seek and plot to harm you; Let not your Lover's pain distract For this will mean your death; Destroyer's might lies in his hate Yet you must never follow; Forgiveness is the thing assured To save Tencendor's soul.Copyright © 1996 by Sara Douglass Enterprises Pty Ltd.
