Defilers and Preservers of Wizards.

A wizard is able to capture and master magical energies. On Athas, magic and the ecosystem are irrevocably bound -no one, not even a wizard, can affect one without affecting the other. All wizards must decide at the beginning of their careers whether they are trying to work with nature or without regard for it. In Dark Sun, if they decide to work without regard for it means the wizard must be a Defiler.

The book also explains the cosmology of Athas and retroactively makes Black Spine make sense

The book also explains the cosmology of Athas and retroactively makes Black Spine make sense. Athas is surrounded by the elemental planes; the Grey, which is the abode of the dead; and the Black, which is a shadowy nothing that separates what is real from what isn't real. While a book about wizards in Dark Sun is a nice addition to the line, Defilers and Preservers has enough oddity and hiccups that I can't entirely endorse it. It's more of a toolkit to remix and draw from than a complete-in-box product, but there is some good stuff in here if you're willing to sift.

Continuing the Dark Sun Series. The last two books were Defilers and Preservers and then Psionic Artifacts of Athas (1996). In 1996, the Dark Sun line was in its final days. A small series of crunchy books followed the release of Dark Sun Campaign Setting Expanded and Revised (1995), and that was the end of the line. Defilers and Preservers was most obviously a sequel to The Will and The Way (1994). Where the earlier book presented kits and new rules for psionicists, this one provided kits and new rules for the wizards of Athas.
