His quest will take him to Rockall, a land wreathed in legend; a land of weird beasts and wondrous happenings, of great beauties and terrible dangers. And there begin adventures stranger than the wildest of Simon's imaginings; adventures that will change the course of his life and reshape that land for ever." Book 2.

Bidding a painful farewell to his new-found love, Princess Ilven, he sets out with Prince Avran to continue his quest for Lyonesse. Travelling in secret - for their enemies are everywhere - Simon and Avran head north, into lands not marked on any map. Their path through strange and wonderful terrain, is beset by savage beasts and hostile peoples, and many times they brush with death. Most ominous of all, they find themselves pursued by mysterious grey riders - men who bear the insignia of an evil empire of ancient times. Book 3. The Winds of the Wastelands: 289 pp, 1992 2nd printing, ISBN 0006178545 - "Simon and his companions travel northwards up the River Aramassa, leaving the Stoney Mountains far behind. During one (adventure) they encounter Essa, a servant girl whose mysterious origins and strange knowledge both aid and baffle them when she joins their quest. When they come to Reschora they are welcomed by its rulers, but warned against travelling further north, though no one will tell them why. Then, at last, comes a clue to the existence of Lyonesse. Ignoring all pleas, they set out north into the lonely and treacherous lands of the Nine Gods. There they will encounter their strangest and most perilous adventures so far."
