Editorial Reviews


     "A fantasy series about the Sacred Band of Stepsons, an elite army modeled on the fourth-century B.C.E. Sacred Band of Thebes. The stories explore the fraught personal relationships of mixed hetero- and homosexual troops, only sometimes paired, as they fight for their commander, the immortal Tempus. Morris includes archaeological and historical details, from physical items to social practices, religion, and philosophy, to create a fantasy world that is, in many ways, more historically accurate than many popular accounts of antiquity." -- Robert W. Cape, Jr, in Classical Traditions in Science Fiction, Brett M. Rogers & Benjamin Eldon Stevens, eds.,  Oxford University Press
    "Caught Between Rebels and the Empire's Blackest Magic: Beyond the Veil: The Revised and Expanded Author's Cut by Janet Morris  "[...] for all the glory of its flesh and blood characters, the beauty of  prose, the literary depth and textures and levels of this classic, there is no shortage of inhumans, once-humans, half-humans, magic-working,  mortals fighting in the streets, mage war, embattled gods, fire-spitting demons, shape-shifters, and a rousing night raid that reaches a  powerful crescendo." - Joe Bonadonna for World Fantasy Award winning  Black Gate Magazine

From the Back Cover

Tempus is a hero with a curse: any he loves will spurn him, and any who love him soon die of it. His curse grants him immortality, the gift of healing, and great prowess on the battlefield, but denies him sleep and love -- a curse so dreadful that even the southern storm god he once served has turned against him. But god or no god, Tempus and his Stepsons, with help from his sorcerer-slaying sister, Cime, and Jihan the Froth Daughter, must face Datan, the archmage of Black Nisibis, and  Roxane, the Death's Queen, along with their unholy followers in a battle for civilization and Tempus' soul.
War is coming to Tyse, an occupied town at the foot of Wizardwall that hosts refugees, insurgents, murderers, thieves, and wizards whose allegiance shifts with the wind. Arriving here is the Sacred Band commanded by Tempus, called the favorite of the storm god, the Riddler, Tempus  the Black, and worse by his enemies. Tempus longs to align his cavalry with the Nisibisi freemen on Wizardwall's slopes, fighting to regain their homeland against the allied sorcerers of Black Nisibis and the evil Mygdonian empire, intent on conquering all who stand in their way.
Here is the newly revised Author's Cut edition of BEYOND THE VEIL, the third full-length novel to take you BEYOND the notorious Thieves World fantasy universe, where gods still stalk the land, warring with demons and human sorcerers and trampling unfortunate humanity underfoot. BEYOND THE VEIL follows BEYOND SANCTUARY and precedes BEYOND WIZARDWALL in Janet Morris's legendary Sacred Band series.
