Light dances with dark, green fire burns in the night, hopes and dreams follow the wind, to fall in black or white.
The prophecy spoke of Thomas Kestrel: outcast, lord, sorcerer, warrior, and perhaps savior of the Kingdoms - if he survives.
In The Raptor of the Highlands, the third book in the Sylvan Chronicles, Thomas realizes more fully the devastation of his people. Imprisoned but not defeated, he befriends Oso, a Highlander who helps him escape the mines. Clashing with the High King's reivers and destroying their prison, he and Oso begin to infuse hope once more in the people of his homeland.
