"With the help of Lythgoe's spot on descriptions - not to mention the beautiful cover art - I could practically feel the mirror under my fingers. I own an old mechanical typewriter that I used to write many a poem on when I was younger. It belonged to my father and the clack and clatter of it when he used to write was a well-loved sound to me. Lythgoe's story brings to mind many memories of my youth and childhood and how the simple things were very special. In the Mirror is well crafted, full of deep emotion, wonder, loss, hope and most of all, magic."

A single dragon's egg could win or topple an empire—but how do you steal a fable?
In the fabulous metropolis of Marketh, master thief Crow flits fearlessly from rooftop to rooftop. He has fame. He has fortune. All he needs is a wedding gift for his beloved. But in mid-heist, the unthinkable happens. He is captured by Baron Duzayan, a wizard with eyes on the emperor’s throne and a shocking lack of morals. The next thing he knows, Crow is packed off to steal an impossible treasure. Lacking confidence in Crow’s commitment to the job, Duzayan raises the stakes with a little kidnapping and poison.
As if that's not enough, he’s paired up with Tanris, the very man who set the trap to catch Crow. Doomed to work together in spite of obvious bad blood, the pair embarks on a rollicking, snarky ride through a land of wizards, demons, and ghosts. Luckily, Crow is armed with a razor-sharp wit and the love of the gods. They’re going to need it…

MIRRORS, MAGES, MUSES…
These magical elements weave through an eclectic collection of fantasy short stories exploring the extraordinary and inspiring the imagination. Would you go on an adventure through a mirror? Use magic if it were easy but illegal? Dare to defy the rules of magic? This expanded edition of "Obscurely Obvious" includes nine additional new tales..
In Blood and Shadow, Robin Lythgoe introduced readers to "a great cast of three-dimensional characters (and) a deliciously disturbed villain that somehow manages to be as believable as he is deranged" (Amazon Reader). Now the story continues as Sherakai dan Tameko discovers there is no easy escape from the tangled destiny laid out for him.
“He is… like copper in the sunlight, magnificent wings lifted, ruination and healing in every line and motion.”
When Sherakai dan Tameko is remade both physically and magically, then trained to become Bairith Mindar's personal weapon, even his Gift cannot help him control the creature he becomes. Now, with his volatile skills painting a bloody path across his beloved country, he must outwit and outfight the man who enslaved him and destroyed his life.
Sherakai's quest for freedom could break the magical leash that binds him to the mage who would be his master—or it could break his mind and loose a monster.
