IN A SUPERNATURAL WORLD, BETTER THE DEVIL YOU KNOW.

Interplanetary liberators Magnus and Alea land on the lost colony planet of Oldeira, where the peasantry live in fear.  Ghosts and dragons fill the woods, mutants and madmen lurk in the ancient abandoned cities, and the local Magician Lords are as likely to abuse their peasants as protect them.

Worse, the common folk have given up all thought of resistance.  How can they fight back against mystical powers they can't even see, let alone understand?  Even if they could overthrow their Magician Lord, who would protect them from the ghosts, dragons, and other magicians?  No, life may be harsh, but at least it's stable... so they've resigned themselves to their fate.

Can Magnus and Alea convince the downtrodden to fight back, to believe that they can fight back?  Thankfully, they have a secret weapon: The Way, a competing philosophy of passive resistance.  But when the Magician Lords move to crush the movement with armies of ghosts... will it be enough?

Matt Mandrell, unsuspecting graduate student, never imagined his
research would lead him to a strange scrap of parchment that would
change his life forever. . . .





Crossing the void of time and space, Matt is whisked away to an
enchanted world where speaking in rhymes works the most dazzling magic.
There he wins not only fame and power as the Lord High Wizard, but the
heart of the beautiful Queen Alisande. His dreams are shattered, though,
when he learns that he can’t marry his true love; wizard or not, Matt
is just a commoner in this bizarre land.





So Matt makes a foolish vow: to conquer a kingdom, any kingdom, if
that’s what it takes to claim his bride. But, as Matt discovers, in this
world of enchantment, such an oath cannot be broken. He has truly
committed himself to win a crown or die trying.





In search of lands to conquer, Matt sets his sights on neighboring
Ibile, where the evil Gordorgrosso rules with an iron fist and sinister
magic. Matt marches off against the tyrant, gathering a small band of
unlikely allies, including a surly dracogriff, a well-spoken cyclop, and
a damsel in distress. But against Gordogrosso’s foul genius, Matt is
going to need much more than a few stout-hearted companions and some
clever rhymes. . . .





Oathbound Wizard is the newest addition to the Del Rey Imagine program,
which offers the best in fantasy and science fiction for readers twelve
and up.





For all the fans of the classic Her Majesty's Wizard, here at last is
the eagerly awaited sequel--an action-packed, laugh-laden new medieval
fantasy. Matt Mantrell's talent for poetry had won him fame, power, and
the heart of a beautiful queen. But to win her hand, he would have to
conquer a kingdom.
