Welcome to the world of honour, war and magic, from a writer who will set epic fantasy alight. In ages past, there had been four magical weapons, fashioned to be used only by the Magefolk. But their history had been lost, together with the artefacts themselves, in the Cataclysm which had wrought changes on land and water alike. Lost also had been the history of the Magefolk, and the Winged Ones, the Leviathans and Phaerie. Aurian, child of renegade Mages, finds herself sent to the city of Nexis to join the Academy and then train as a full Mage. Little does she suspect that she will quickly become entwined with a power struggle between Miathan, the Archmage, and the human inhabitants of Nexis. The only person to whom she can turn is Forral, Commander of the city's military garrison and friend of her dead father. But this friendship infuriates Miathan, and leads to a deadly conflagration, in which the first Artefact is revealed. Aurian's flight, with her servant Anvar, turns into both odyssey and rite-of-passage as she travels to the little-known Southern Kingdoms and begins to rediscover the history of the weapons which are the only hope against Miathan and Armageddon - The Artefacts of Power! In 'Aurian', Maggie Furey has begun a classic tale of epic fantasy. Set in a world of honour, war and magic, it will delight all fans of Terry Brooks, David Eddings and Tad Williams. "I sat down to read Aurian in the early evening, and was surprised when the dawn came up. Rich, colourful and infinitely enchanting it is a work that will give enormous pleasure to fantasy readers. I loved it!" - David Gemmell.
