Following 'Prospero's Children' and 'The Dragon-Charmer', 'Witch's Honour' concludes this brilliant debut fantasy series from British writer Jan Siegel.
A final confrontation between the Old Spirit, Azmordis, and our heroine, Fern.
The world of myth and magic is wound ever more closely with reality: in basements filled with smokey shadows, dancers perform to primitive rhythms while painted frescoes melt and change on the walls; faceless motorcyclists patrol like evil knights; primeval symbols adorn new advertising campaigns; computers are invaded by unprogrammed messages.
The Dark Tower of ancient tales is reincarnated as a sky-scraper faceted with black glass. Where once he employed pagan religions and tribal gods to achieve control, now the Old Spirit uses the modern religions of money and greed to suborn the hearts of Men. He has gained ascendancy of another of Prospero's Children - another descended from the lost Atlantis - a young man as Gifted as Fern, and through him can manipulate a business empire greater than any individual nation or deity.
Perhaps this time, this is a battle that Fern cannot win.
