The Fellowship of Jair, a secret cabal of men and women located in every kingdom in the world engineered the King's downfall because he chose to oppose them. The fugitives flee to Sarmonia where they hope to have the aid of the King and his army to win back Hal's throne. The Fellowship gets words of the group's whereabouts and make plans to kill them but Hal is a strong spokesman for his cause and Rani has powers that she doesn't know about that could change the course of battle.

This is the fifth and last book of this well written and enthralling fantasy series and it is one of the most rewarding and poignant works in the collection. All the loose ends are tied up, the ending is everything the reader could hope for but there is also sadness in THE GLASSWRIGHTS' MASTER as good people die because of the evil of a cabal of power hungry traitors.
