Vincalis the AgitatorCover work for Holly's new novel, Vincallis the Agitator

Look for it in bookstores now!

Holly Lisle's acclaimed trilogy THE SECRET TEXTS is the epic adventure of heroes battling a resurrected evil that had nearly destroyed the world a millennium before. Now Holly Lisle take readers back to the days of that ancient apocalypse -- and to the decadent heart of a fantastic, doomed empire . . .

Glory of the Dragons

Based on a science of sorcery called Dragon magic, the Hars Ticlarim is a miraculous place of mansions built on clouds and gardens blooming diamonds beneath canopies of captive stars. But this incomparable beauty hides a dark core: Dragon magic draws its power from the agony of slaves who are killed for sorcerous fuel. And for three thousand years, no one has dared question the empire's inhuman cruelty . . . until now.

Wraith, a boy with an uncanny power, seeks the art to foment a revolution within the Hars Ticlarim. Solander, a brilliant young mage, believed he has discovered a totally new form of magic. Luercas, a sadistic noble, will commit any crime that furthers his ambition. All three are clever, resolute, driven -- and naive. For they challenge the rulers of a globe-spanning power that has endured for millennia -- rulers who will do anything to stay in power forever . . .

Emperor Corydon watches as his lands fall to the barbarians, and makes a fateful decision to save what he loves...The Last Days of Faneh-Thenyal
Jintsu E-texts.

Bittersweet and poignant, Lazette Gifford's novelette "The Last Days of Faneh-Thenyal" is a highly original take on the last days of a fading empire, and the courage of one man who dares to see and act beyond the ordinary repercussions of conquest.--Vera Nazarian,  author of DREAMS OF THE COMPASS ROSE

 

Years of slavery have robbed Silky of his magical abilities, and left him with no expectations of a better life...Silky

Embiid Publishing

Exciting, complex and richly textured, with a world you'll believe and a protagonist you have to cheer for -- Silky is wonderful.
