A new edition of the evocative fantasy novel!

In the ancient land of the Five Hills, the worshippers of Nialia, goddess of Fate, see the future in fire and wisps of smoke. But the followers of Armas, god of Strength and Power, are grounded in the past and have a practical grasp of the present. They are forbidden to marry among the Nialians, the seers of the future. For a child born of such love will be godlike, having all time and knowledge in his grasp, and the mortal shell will not contain it. Death or madness will result, and a great destruction will come upon the Hills...  

Now in the first year of the Sixth Hold of the King, the warning signs of a coming evil are increasing. A challenge to royal supremacy grows in strength and cunning in the passages of the palace, while across the border the enemy prepares in secret for war against them. Dalleena, the young royal heir, finds her once-strong powers of prophecy failing. To protect her country, she knows only that she must commit a great crime and heresy - risking her own life and the life of her lover.  

From the palace of Lindahne to the edge of the Sea, from the darkness of Sanlin's Cave to the secret political maneuverings of Mendale, this epic fantasy novel seizes the imagination as the story sweeps to the final joining of battle across the darkling Hills.

About the Author:

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away (otherwise known as Long Island, New York), Lori Martin was a fantasy author whose first novel THE DARKLING HILLS was published by New American Library and Signet. Falling prey to life’s many distractions, including the necessity of earning a living and raising children, Martin nearly forgot how much fun it is to make stuff up. She has recently returned to fantasy writing, issuing a new edition of THE DARKLING HILLS. The sequel, CALLING UP THE FIRE, is complete and will be released soon. Martin is currently at work on a new series.

From Publishers Weekly:

As a Nialian princess in the mythical kingdom of Lindalne, Dallena is aware of her responsibility to rule her people and uphold the tenets of the gods. Unfortunately, she falls in love with the Armasii nobleman Rendell, despite the prophecy that the union between a Nialian and an Armasii would lead to the destruction of the empire. Martin's first novel is interesting and imaginative. She avoids the predictable in her characters and plot in order to develop a darkly inspirational tale.
