The Lighthouse Duet
(A book in the Valen series)
An omnibus of novels by Carol Berg
Flesh and Spirit: In Navronne, a land torn apart by civil war, sorcerers are bound by strict rules and contracted servitude. Yet not all pureblood accept such lives. For 12 years, Valen, the son of cartographers and diviners, had escaped what had been ordained for him.only to wind up half-dead in an obscure sanctuary, addicted to a spell that turns pain to pleasure, and possessing only a stolen book of maps. It is that book-rumored to lead men into the realm of angels-that will thrust Valen into a world of conspirators, monks, princes and madmen.and the secrets of his own past. Breath and Bone: Everyone in Navronne seems to be after Valen. There's the mad Harrower priestess, Sila Diaglou, intent on restoring the world to a primeval state. The Bastard Prince Osriel, who steals dead men's eyes. And the Registry, determined to keep every pureblood sorcerer in thrall. Even the Danae guardians, beings out of myth whose dancing nurtures the earth, may be stalking him. Yet no one is who he seems, and Valen's search for healing grace leads him from Harrower dungeons to a land of legend, where he discovers the truth of the coming dark age and the astonishing price of the land's redemption...and his own.
