Ithanalin's Restoration (Legends of Ethshar 8)
This is the 8th book in the Legends of Ethshar series. It takes place during the time of the sixth novel but is completely independent of that book. It can be read by itself.
Kilisha, apprentice to a wizard, is out running errands. Upon her return, she finds that apparently a spell went wrong and the life force of the wizard is scattered through all the furniture. Somehow the furniture is animated and escapes. Most of the novel is spent finding the furniture and confining it. The first few chapters are very funny but eventually the plot slows down and is sometimes very repetitive. While this isn't the best fantasy out there, it isn't bad and gives the reader an idea of the Ethshar series. You can read more about the background at http://www.ethshar.com/
From the book:
Kilisha came in sight of the shop and noticed that the drapes were still drawn. The door was open. Wide open. She stopped dead in her tracks. Something was wrong here.
Something was very wrong.
Ithanalin was crouching on the floor just a few feet inside the door, as if in the process of rising from a sitting position. But he was not moving. He was utterly, perfectly still, his face frozen in a beard-bristling expression of severe annoyance.
Kilisha stared at him for a moment. "Master?" Kilisha said. Ithanalin didn't respond.
She stepped closer and, very carefully, reached out and touched the immobile wizard.
He was still warm, but he didn't react, didn't move. His skin felt lifeless and inert, like sun-warmed leather rather than living flesh.
She stared wildly around the room. "Master, what happened?" she wailed.
What is an aspiring apprentice wizard to do when she finds her mentor and master frozen in his tracks by mysterious magics?
