In Siege of Daylight - kindle ebook by Gregory S. Close

In Siege of Daylight is an epic fantasy with the depth of Tolkien, the
fun of Fritz Lieber, the prose of Tad Williams and a touch of the
brooding darkness of George R. R. Martin. If you are a fan of epic
fantasy told from multiple viewpoints, with action wedged in-between a
dash of politics, revenge, and ancient magic seeping in around the edges
of everyday life, then this is the book, and the series, you've been
waiting for. You won't just read about characters living in a magical
world, you'll join them there.

Calvraign is an apprentice to the king's bard. His studies are filled
with prophecy, romance, mythic enemies, and magic, and he contents
himself with such fantasies until the day that he is suddenly called to
the capital city. His best friend Callagh, the most skilled huntress in
their village, senses something isn't right with Calvraign's hasty
summons and follows him. Her instincts prove true, as his arrival throws
the king's court into chaos, and the two are abruptly torn from their
simple country life and plunged into a real-life version of Calvraign's
tales. A menacing prophecy reveals that an all-encompassing dark magic
has already been loosed upon the world, and there is only one way to
stop it. Calvraign must reverse the Darkening before treachery takes the
life of the crown prince and plunges the kingdom of Providayne into
chaos. And Callagh must keep him alive long enough to do it….
