Years ago, at the cost of many lives, Asher defeated the dark sorcerer, Morg, and brought peace to Lur...
But now, happily raising a family, Asher realises that peace and safety are an illusion. Something has woken in Lur′s earth, creating weather that threatens to tear their world apart. Asher thinks he can save Lur by wielding the dangerous magic that he loathes... and which may take his life.
Rafel, Asher′s son, is a mage of great power, but he has to break free of his father to truly discover his talents. All previous expeditions over the forbidden mountains have met with disaster and death, but Rafel is determined to try. As father and son struggle to understand each other, elsewhere a great evil is brewing...

Against all prejudicies concerning sequels to finished series The Prodigal Mage is able to catch up with where The Awakened Mage (Innocence Lost) ended. A notable achievement in itself, without the mention of a tormenting blub which leads the reader in a "merry" waiting and turns out to be (as could be guessed)quite different from the expectations. AND never to forget Karen Miller's apparent knack of nasty turnings sending shivers down your spine.
