The Darkweaver Legacy is a series of four young adult fantasy novels by British author Mark Robson. The first book in the series was published in 2000 and the fourth and final book in 2003. The name refers to an important magical artifact in the books, made by a magician named Derrigan Darkweaver. His "legacy" is his amulet that was found by Earl Demarr in the first book, The Forging of the Sword. The series is a prelude to Mark's second series of children's books, the Imperial Series, which unlike the first series focuses on espionage rather than magic. Both series are set in the fictional countries of Thrandor and Shandar.

Book one: The Forging of the Sword[edit]

The art of the magician has been banned in Thrandor for two hundred years. Magic has degenerated to myth and legend, fit only for the songs of minstrels. So thought Calvyn, a young teenager from a farming village near the borders of the Great Western Forest. Unbeknown to him, a magical talisman has been recovered and the whole of Thrandor stands blissfully unaware that disaster is poised to strike. So begins the Darkweaver Legacy.

Book two: Trail of the Huntress[edit]

The battle for Mantor has been won. Against all odds the Terachite nomads are in retreat. Yet now, even before the threat of the Nomad Clans has passed, a new danger has arisen in the north. The mystical Lords of the Inner Eye have initiated an evil plan that will force Jenna to face her destiny. A deadly path is laid before her, one filled with doubts and danger at every turn. But sometimes even fate can be twisted. Especially when you are "The Huntress".

Book three: First Sword[edit]

After the spectacular victory at Kortag, Thandor appears safe. Bek and Jez, however, are imprisoned and in grave danger. Forced to fight in the deadly arena where all who face them are enemies, they make plans for their escape, but to escape, they must first survive. Perdimonn, warder of the earth key, also faces a perilous road. The powerful magician, Selkor, having restored Darkweaver’s amulet, is now attempting to gather the Keys of Power. Perdimonn must risk everything to stop Selkor and avert disaster. For Perdimonn a dangerous race and for Bek, the deadly contest to prove that he is still first sword.

Book four: The Chosen One[edit]

Selkor has gained three of the four keys that the Warders have kept secret for untold years. The Shandese magician is desperate to get the final key and become The Chosen One prophesied by the oracle, Drehboor Perdimonn, warder of the earth key, must somehow find a way to stop him. Calvyn and the Council of Magicians are racing to Perdimonn’s aid, but hundreds of leagues separate the allies and Selkor is not Calvyn's only enemy.
