Read full description of the books:In THE GREEN PEARL, King Aillas of Troicinet defends the peace of the Elder Isles against both the Ska marauders who once enslaved him and the wicked King Casmir. While organizing the unruly barons in the frontiers of his land, Aillas goes out of his way to capture the lovely Ska noblewoman who once stung him with her disregard. When he gets separated from his men, his dream of forcing the lady's recognition becomes the toil of dragging a defiant captive across lands governed by Casmir's henchmen. Meanwhile, the world of magic has gone on the move. The concentrated malice of the witch Desmki has manifested as a green pearl, breeding lust and envy and death; and a sorcerer in Casmir's employ abducts the princess Glyneth, in a bid to draw Aillas and friends on a hopeless rescue mission across a bizarre and deadly alternate world.A masterpiece of romantic, picaresque adventure, THE GREEN PEARL extends the epic founded with LYONESSE: SULDRUN'S GARDEN and concluded in the World Fantasy Award-winning MADOUC. The ElectricStory eBook comprises the definitive text assembled and re-edited by the Vance Integral Edition project with the close collaboration of Mr. Vance himself.
