The wizard lord by Lawrence Watt-Evans( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Wizard Lord's duty is to keep the world in its delicate balance. He must govern lightly to protect his domain from power-hungry interlopers, such as certain wizards who previously fought to rule the world ... But if the Wizard Lord himself strays from the way of the just, then it is up to the Chosen to intercede." "The Chosen ones are the Leader, the Seer, the Swordsman, the Beauty, the Thief, the Scholar, the Archer, and the Speaker. Each are magically infused mortal individuals who, for the term of their service, have only one function: to be available to remove an errant Wizard Lord, whether by persuasion or by stronger means." "Breaker, a young man of ambition, has taken the mantle of Swordsman from its former bearer, who wished to retire. Never did he realize that he would be called to duty so quickly or that the balance of power in his world would be so precarious."--Jacket

He is the true chosen Champion of the Domdur. Should the Empire find itself at war, though the claw mark will have long since faded, Malledd will be the one to lead them to victory, by the gods' decree. The Empire has been more than four generations without an enemy, however, and many doubt the existence of a chosen Champion - including Malledd himself. But when the oracles stop speaking to the priests, everyone begins to wonder. In the dark hills of the Eastern lands, a centuries-old promise has come to its end, and an army of undead soldiers led by a dark magician gathers to challenge the empire. An Imperial Army is quickly gathered, and the Champion sought for. Will he answer his call? Or will the Empire fall because of one man's refusal to be anything other than normal?"--

Fantasy fiction. When the foreigners confronted Sterren in Ethshar of the Spices he was uneasy; when they all but abducted him, taking him to an obscure kingdom in the south, he knew he was in a terrible predicament. A predicament some might actually find appealing -- he was by heredity the Ninth Warlord of Semma, least of the small kingdoms; he was a noble, and his rank afforded him material privileges, even in a place as insignificant and obscure as Semma. But the office also carried certain terrible responsibilities: he was to win the war the stupid King had stirred up by his arrogance. Two larger and stronger Kingdoms were preparing to invade Semma. And if the country lost, the first thing likely to be forfeit was the life of the Warlord. And if it won ... if it won, the fate and shape of Ethshar would change forever. For deep in the south there are secrets of magic not even Sterren can imagine
