The Wandering Fire by Guy Gavriel Kay
The Wandering Fire is the second volume in Guy Gavriel Kay's trilogy The Fionavar Tapestry. The five travellers are once again called back to the First of All Worlds to play out their given roles.
The Wandering Fire is set six months after the events in The Summer Tree. Back in Toronto, Jennifer is expecting the god Rakoth Maugrim's child and she and Paul cross back to Fionavar after being persued by Galadan, the Wolf Lord. Jennifer gives birth to a young boy called Darien, the boy who will have to "take the Longest Road" of any child ever born.
Kim has a long awaited dream and the path forward becomes clearer. After travelling to England, Kim enlists the help of Arthur Pendragon. Dave and the Dalrei are finding life on the plains difficult in the midst of a terrible winter, wolves and urgach's attack and they are hard pressed to hold them back.
Shalhassan and Sharra, of Cathal, join forces with Brennin to fight against Rakoth and his minions. Upon discovering the source of the unnatural winter, a party sets forth to the cursed aisle of Cedar Sedat to break the Cauldron of Khath Meigol to fight the source of this power and to free the land of its evil.
And the Wolflord replied, "For nothing else am I here, though I will kill the girl when you are dead. Remember who I am: the childre of gods have knelt to wash my feet. You are nothing yet, Pwyll Twiceborn, and you will be twice before I let you come into your force."
The Wandering Fire: The Warrior
An entertaining addition to the trilogy, the characters are evolving and their roles become clearer. The introduction of Arthur Pendragon breathes new life into the story and the story builds towards its conclusion.
