Darknesses, the sequel to Legacies, is the second volume of L. E. Modesitt, Jr's new fantasy sequence, the Corean Chronicles.

Corus is a world of humans, but also of strange animals and supernatural creatures. It is a world of magical powers and of a few people who are Talented enough to use them. Alucius, the hero of the story, is one such person In Legacies we saw how he grew from a Talented child on a lonely Nightsheep ranch in the Iron Valleys to a proficient soldier who used his wits and his Talent to become the first to escape military enslavement in the neighboring country of Madrien. Now captain of the Twenty-first Company, the youngest officer of his rank in the Militia, he must face new challenges, both military and magical.

Corus has been fragmented since the collapse of its ancient magic-powered civilization. A would-be conqueror has somehow revived sorcerous creatures of legend to assist in his crusade to reunite the continent under his rule. The Iron Valleys are forced into an alliance with the Lord-Protector of Lanachrona, and the Twenty-first is dispatched to stand against the invaders. Neither the officers above him nor the men under him know it, but Alucius's Talent is their only hope for victorv, or even survival.

In Darknesses, Alucius learns more about his magical Talent, meets many more supernatural creatures, and discovers the sinister forces vying for power behind the scenes across Corus. This volume completes the story arc begun in Legacies, but there will be further books set in this world in the future.

L E MODESITT, JR., the author of the bestselling Saga of Recluce and the Spellsong Cycle, lives in Cedar City, Utah. "The gritty details of this world make it as real as any in science fiction. As usual, Mr. Modesitt's sense of power makes the fantastic background more plausible." —Philadelphia Press & Review

on The Spellsong War
"The underlying theme of this volume is stewardship and its costs. Modesitt shows how Anna must change her assumptions about herself, what she will and will not do, to be true to the responsibilities she has taken on as regent. Darksong Rising is another of Modesitt's deeply philosophical novels disguised as an action-adventure, military fantasy Highly recommended." —VOYA on Darksong Rising
