Book Description

What if the Trojan war had happened in India?

In a world rooted in Mediterranean, Persian, and Indian history and mythology, armies clash, magicks compete, and the gods set their pawns onto the game board. Andrion’s nephew Gard, now an adult, is only too aware that the blood of both gods and demons runs in his veins. When he steps over the line once too often, he is sent into exile, where a mad monk and a beautiful slave force him to accept his latent magical abilities. But when Gard sets out to exploit his skills in the rich valley of the Mohan, he accidentally starts a war that changes his world and that of his hosts forever.

“...an interesting re-telling of an old legend. The ending is full of twists, unpredictable, with a delightful discussion of death and glory.”

—Timothy Lane, Fosfax

“...an intense tale...a complex and fascinating plot...resonances between adolescent lust and mature love, between interior and exterior beauty, and between faith and skepticism underlie the story with a steely webwork of reality...an elegant thread of eroticism woven with delicacy and wit through the story...the prose is crafted with a jeweler's precision and the use of imagery is masterful. Carl may well be the finest stylist working in fantasy today.”

—Ardath Mayhar, Thrust

"An interesting re-telling of an old legend. The ending is full of twists, unpredictable." -- Timothy Lane

From the Publisher

An interesting re-telling of an old legend. The ending is full of twists, unpredictable, with a delightfu discussion of death and glory.

An intense tale, a complex and fascinating plot... resonances between adolescent lust and mature love, between interior and exterior beauty, and between faith and skepticism underlie the story with a steely webwork of reality. Carl may well be the finest stylist working in fantasy today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remember the Illiad! October 12, 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This fascinating book is, as far as I'm concerned, the best of Carl's fantasies. Her literary roots are showing here -- recasting the Homerian epic Illiad in a richly realized pseudia-India, with all the elephants and temples and culture that goes along with it. A distant sequal to the excellent Amazonian-inspired Sabazel, this book lacks none of the action and intrigue of Carl's other books, but she flexes her writing muscles and really has fun here. She's been to India, and conveys aspects of that culture with quiet confidence, and uses all of her extensive research to powerful effect. Even so, her unique creation here -- the little psychic dragon -- is still my favorite touch in a throroughly unforgettable book!

More About the Author

A child of the American heartland, Lillian Stewart Carl graduated from grade school in Missouri, from high school in Ohio, and from college in Texas. She should have a Bachelor of Arts in History, but inadvertently found herself with a Bachelor of Science in Education. Either way, she's now pursuing one of the few jobs that can be done with a background in history and English--writing fiction that invokes a legendary past, even in contemporary settings.

It's no surprise that Lillian and her long-suffering husband have wandered countless British single-track roads, from Orkney to Dover and back again. Also, just for variety, she has excavated the Biblical city of Gezer in Israel, worn a pink and mauve sari to a wedding in Hyderabad, India, searched for Middle Earth in New Zealand, and sung "Waltzing Matilda" in a haunted cottage in the Australian outback.

Being generally a mild-mannered individual, Lillian has yet to throw anyone across the room with her tai chi skills. Nor has she stabbed anyone with her knitting needles or slammed anyone's fingers except her own in the cover of her piano keyboard.
