For the first time in an omnibus, this duology chronicles the adventures of naturalist Tristram Flattery as he voyages to discover the lost history of magic in a world where reason and science reign.

The Age of Mages is over, and all the secrets of their magical arts are thought to be lost to the world. There are even those who suspect that the last of the great Mages spent their final years scrupulously eradicating all traces of their craft from the pages of history--insuring that their art will never be practiced again.

It is the dawn of a new era: an age of reason, science, and exploration, and Tristam Flattery is one of its most promising young naturalists. But when Tristam is summoned to the royal court of Farrland to try to revitalize a failing species of plant which seems to have mysterious, almost magical, medicinal properties--a plant without which, he is told, the aging king will surely die--he soon realizes that he has been drawn into the heart of a political struggle which spans generations, a conflict which threatens the very foundations of his civilization. And before long, Tristam is caught in the grip of a destiny which will lead him to the ends of the known world--on a voyage of discovery that has more to do with magic than with science....

Praise for the Moontide and Magic Rise duology:

“The compelling first volume in a series titled Moontide and Magic Rise bodes well for the ones to follow.... A spectacular beginning of what is sure to be a successful fantasy series.” —Publishers Weekly

“The first book of Sean Russell’s new series, Moontide and Magic Rise, is good—surprisingly good, compelling, and intriguing.... It’s great fun.” —Locus

“This book is complex and well-written.” —Kliatt

“Reading World without End is akin to perusing a narrative by an explorer like Marco Polo or Ferdinand Magellan. It has that true feeling to it. Sean Russell methodically reveals details until the reader has a full picture of this world and its peoples.” —Starlog

“Tristam is an excellent hero who struggles not only with external forces out to do him harm, but with his own internal demons, which , even if they leave him alive at the end of this nightmare adventure, will leave him forever changed, forever haunted.” —Affaire de Coeur
