Synopsis

In the second volume of the Lyonesse trilogy, new threads are woven into the epic tapestry begun in Suldruns Garden. While war rages across the Elder Isles, King Aillass true love, Glyneth, is carried off to a parallel world by an amoral magician in the pay of the wicked King Casmir. Meanwhile, a sorceresss malice, condensed into a green pearl, passes from hand to hand bringing poignant misery to whomever it touches.Jack Vance conjures up a tale of war and politics, magic and derring-do, presented in the inimitable style that has made him one of fantasys acknowledged grandmasters.The Green Pearl is part 2 of 3 of Lyonesse.The Lyonesse Trilogy is a group of three fantasy novels by Jack Vance, set in the European Dark Ages, in the mythical Elder Isles west of France and southwest of Britain, a generation or two before the birth of King Arthur. An Atlantis theme haunts the story, as do numerous references to Arthurian mythology.Some place names and concepts, such as references to sandestins as magical creatures that do the actual work of carrying out a magician's spells, are shared between Lyonesse and Vance's Dying Earth series, suggesting that the two worlds may be linked.Cover art by Koen Vyverman
