Book Title/Author needed
I am looking for the title and/or author of a fantasy book. The plot is such: a teenage girl is discovered to have magic, and in this world magic is channeled through 3D objects and is in different colors. She eventually finds the lost king of her kingdom, and he is so powerful that he channels white light through a sphere. I know there are at least two books that involve these characters. Thanks for viewing and hopefully helping me out!

Re: Book Title/Author needed
I'm not familar with the story I'm afraid but a quick 'net search throws up the author Catherine Asaro and the book "The Charmed Sphere"
"Originally a novella entitled "Moonglow" in 2003's Charmed Destinies anthology, The Charmed Sphere is the much-expanded story about a reluctant mage and an equally reluctant heir. Chime is living an idyllic life with her family in the rural hamlet of Jacob's Vale. But her life is turned upside down when one of the King of Aronsdale's most trusted advisers, searching the kingdom for shape-mages, identifies her as a promising mage with powerful undeveloped ability. Chime reluctantly agrees to travel to Castle Suncroft, where she is to be trained in the art of magecraft -- and also groomed for her marriage to Prince Muller, the heir to the throne of Aronsdale! Muller is the nephew to the king, and the last thing he wants to do is get married and rule a kingdom. He's more concerned with fashion than affairs of state. When the King of Aronsdale dies and Muller continues to postpone his royal ascension, the leader of a neighboring kingdom -- along with an insane mage bent on destroying Aronsdale -- sees the transition as the perfect time to strike."
Apparently the mages use shapes to focus their spells (pyramids, cubes, spheres etc) and also the colour of these shapes determine different types of spells, so it seems to fit your recollection.
