All three books of The Prisoner and the Sun Trilogy in one grand edition:
ESCAPE - Young Iliff believes his prison world to be all there is. But when a stranger tells him the story of a long-ago escapee, Iliff resolves to learn the truth. Thus begins his journey to find the Sun, a magnificent power from which all things are said to originate -- including him. But first he must venture beyond the very walls he is charged with upholding and into realms deep and dark, where fearsome creatures lurk.
LIGHTS & SHADOWS - The journey is over. The quest for the Sun fallen to ruin. From the depths of a hopeless swamp, Iliff condemns himself. But when he encounters a dethroned king and his war-torn subjects, he stirs to new purpose: to protect these good people from the darkness of the world. It will be his redemption. Or will it? For the more fiercely Iliff struggles to fortify their light, the greater looms the enemy's shadow -- and his own.
FINAL PASSAGE - The Sun remains elusive, and Skye is fading. Now the challenge before Iliff is clear: complete his quest or lose Skye forever. With time short and hope waning, he knows his looming journey will demand everything of him. But clues are few and cryptic and all seem to point toward the last place he ever expected, or wanted, to venture.
