The Prisoner and the Sun Publisher's Summary

"This journey you have chosen. I cannot make it for you." Adramina's voice softened. "But do not judge suffering so harshly, Iliff. For indeed, it has proven a faithful guide. Think of all the times it has led to your release."

A hero's journey and poignant allegory, The Prisoner and the Sun chronicles Iliff's struggle for freedom. Stone walls, lies, dreadful creatures, and Death itself beset his path. And then there are Iliff's own convictions about the unseen Sun and how one beholds it. Convictions that present perhaps the most daunting barriers to his quest's fulfillment.

Now, all three books in one epic edition:

Book 1: Escape - Young Iliff believes his prison world to be all there is. But when a stranger tells him the story of a long-ago escapee, Iliff resolves to learn the truth. Thus begins his journey to find the Sun, a magnificent power from which all things are said to originate -- including him.

Book 2: Lights & Shadows - The journey is over. The quest for the Sun fallen to ruin. From the depths of a hopeless swamp, Iliff condemns himself. But when he encounters a dethroned king and his war-torn subjects, he stirs to new purpose: to protect these good people from the darkness of the world.

Book 3: Final Passage - The Sun remains elusive, and Skye is fading. Now the challenge before Iliff is clear: complete his quest or lose Skye forever.

    "You are closer than you believe." These are the mystic Adramina's final words to Iliff. But despite years of searching, Iliff has neither seen nor felt the one Mountain rumored to climb beyond the clouds to the Sun, and Skye is fading. Now the challenge before Iliff is clear: complete his quest or lose Skye forever. With time short and hope waning, his looming journey will demand everything of him. But clues are few and cryptic and all seem to point toward the last place he ever expected, or wanted, to venture.
