work for Holly's new novel, Vincallis the Agitator, to be released in March, 2002:
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
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 . . .
Lisle's current book -- on the stands now!
To defeat the Dragons, Kait and Ry must destroy the source of the sorcerers'
power -- the Mirror of Souls. But if they succeed, they will lose the only
weapon that can stop Luercas from becoming a demonic god who will enslave the
entire world . . . forever.
