To save his beloved, Arutha sets out in search of the mytics herb called Silverthorn that only grows in the dark and forbidding land of the Spellweavers.
Accompanied by a mercenary, a minstrel, and a clever young thief, he wil confront an ancient evil and do battle with the dark powers that threaten the enchanted realm of Midkemia.
"I found "Silverthorn" to be as exciting and absorbing as "Magician" in every way. The excellent characterization wedded to a tight and well-tumed plot makes it one of the outstanding fantasy offerings of the season." --Andre Norton
