The Wizard (The Wizard Knight, Book Two) : Here is a work to rival the greatest fantasy of the last century, one truly in Tolkien's tradition. A novel in two volumes, which began earlier this year with The Knight and now ends with The Wizard, The Wizard Knight is in the rare company of those works that spring from the myth and literature of past ages. A teenager passed from Earth to a magical realm of seven worlds, where he was soon given a heroes adult body and the name Able. Forced to act as a man, inside he remained a boy, even as he set off to find his destined sword and become a knight. In The Wizard, Sir Able returns to the world of Mythgarthr following his fight with the dragon Grengarm. Twenty years older, with a unicorn steed named Cloud, Able has special magical powers he has sworn not to use, in return for the hope of meeting his beloved Aelf queen again. He battles giants; meets gods, heroes, and a sorceress who tries repeatedly to seduce him; and serves the mercurial dragon king Arnthor in a final war with the Osterlings. The Wizard is a thrilling, charming, emotionally-riveting tale of wonders, written with the stylistic clarity and beauty we have come to expect of Gene Wolfe.
