AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The sorcerer has awoken and blights the land ... while the innocent mage hovers between life and death.

Rafel′s expedition over the mountains to Lost Dorana has disappeared. Now Deenie is having disturbing dreams of her brother and determines to seek the truth. In the company of her best friend she finds a way beyond Lur, only to find that the evil sorcerer, Morg, still holds those lands in a tenuous but strengthening grip.' (From the publisher's website.)

Notes

  • Dedication:

    Dedicated to

    Robert B Parker

    Who lifted crime fiction into the heady realm of

    sweet, spare elegance

    Kage Baker

    One of the most gifted and consistently under-rated

    writers in the field of speculative fiction

    and

    Dick Francis

    I read Hot Money so many times the book came

    apart in my hands.

    If that doesn't denote genius, I don't know

    what does.

    I can't believe we lost three of my favourite writers in

    the spaec of a few weeks. Thank you, thank you, and

    may you all rest in peace.
