"We are going home!" Zania Corthinn and her friends Kahri, Risch, Jain and Joric are on their way to the Throne of the Sun, one of the Five elven Kingdoms and the land where Zania's mother once ruled as queen. There Zania hopes to learn more of her family and her elven heritage. First, though, there is a sea to cross, and adventure along the way. Zania and her friends must contend with storms, pirates, sorcery and even other exiles from the Throne of the Sun. But their greatest test will come when they reach the elven kingdoms -- a test which may tear their bonds of friendship apart and change their lives forever. The Throne of the Sun is Trina L. Talma's third book in the adventures of Zania Corthinn, and the second book in the trilogy begun with River's End.
