The Paths Of The Dead. The long-awaited sequel to The Phoenix Guards and Five Hundred Years After Two hundred years after Adron's Disaster, in which Dragaera City was accidentally reduced to an ocean of chaos by an experiment in wizardry gone wrong, the Empire isn't what it used to be. Deprived at a single blow of their Emperor, of the Orb that is the focus of the Empire's power, of their capital city with its Impe-rial bureaucracy, and of a great many of their late fellow citizens, the surviving Dragaerans have been limping through a long Interregnum, bereft even of the simple magic and sorcery they were accustomed to use in everyday life. Now the descendants and successors of the great ad-venturers Khaavren, Pel, Aerich, and Tazendra are growing up in this seemingly diminished world, con-vinced, like their elders, that the age of adventures is over and nothing interesting will ever happen to them. They are, of course, wrong . . . . For even deprived of magic, Dragaerans fight, plot, and conspire as they breathe, and so do their still-powerful gods. The enemies of the Empire prowl at its edges, in-scrutable doings are up at Dzur Mountain...and, unex-pectedly, a surviving Phoenix Heir, young Zerika, is discovered—setting off a chain of swashbuckling events that will remake the world yet again. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

When Amy MacKenzie agrees to attend a meeting at a local spiritualist church, the last person she expects to hear calling to her from beyond the grave is her son.

When a second body is found in similar circumstances, a pattern begins to emerge, of a killer intent on masterminding a gruesome Druidic game that everyone will be forced to play . . .

Path Of The Dead. "Nestled on the foot of the sacred Seche La Mountain is the Tibetan village of Dagze. The normally-quiet streets are bustling with the steady stream of arrivals and preparations for the coming Festival of the Medicine King; a celebration of healing and renewal. But a shadow is sweeping the world, a plague of apocalyptic proportions: the dead are rising. As Dagze is overtaken by the hungry undead, five people are forced together in order to survive. With the undead gathering, the five survivors barricade themselves inside an abandoned, mist-shrouded Buddhist hermitage - and dead-end haven - called the Eagle's Nest, where they are forced to battle the beasts without ... and the ones within." -- page 4 of cover
