Tamas's invasion of Kez ends in disaster when a Kez counter-offensive leaves him cut off behind enemy lines with only a fraction of his army, no supplies, and no hope of reinforcements.

But the threats are closer to home...In Adro, Inspector Adamat wants only to rescue his wife. To do so he must track down and confront the evil Lord Vetas. He has questions for Vetas concerning his enigmatic master, but the answers will lead Adamat on a darker journey. Who will lead the charge?Tamas's generals bicker among themselves, the brigades lose ground every day beneath the Kez onslaught, and Kresimir wants the head of the man who shot him in the eye. With Tamas and his powder cabal presumed dead, Taniel Two-shot finds himself as the last line of defense against Kresimir's advancing army. THE CRIMSON CAMPAIGN continues the most acclaimed and action-packed new epic fantasy series in years, following on from Promise of Blood - an adrenaline-fuelled debut of flintlock mages, civil war, and cold-blooded murder in a world where gods walk the earth.

Mrs H.D. Everett was the last in a long line of gifted Victorian novelists who knew how to grip the reader through the invasion of everyday life by the abnormal and dramatic, leaving the facts to produce their special thrills without piling on the agony. 'I always know', says one of her characters, 'how to distinguish a true ghost story from a faked one. The true ghost story never has any point and the faked one dare not leave it out.'From the chilling horror of 'The Death Mask' to the shocking violence of 'The Crimson Blind', from the creeping menace of 'Parson Clench' to the mounting suspense of 'The Pipers of Mallory', these thrilling stories were enthusiastically received by readers and critics when they first appeared, and are sure to delight and terrify the modern reader in equal measure.

The return of the mercenary company, the Crimson Guard, could not have come at a worse time for a Malazan Empire exhausted by warfare and weakened by betrayals and rivalries. Indeed, there are those who wonder whether the Empress Laseen might not be losing her grip on power as she faces increasing unrest as conquered kingdoms and principalities sense freedom once more. Into the seething cauldron of Quon Tali--the Empire's heartland--marches the Guard. With their return comes the memory of the Empire--and yet all is not well with the Guard itself. Elements within its elite, the Avowed, have set their sights on far greater power. There are ancient entities who also seek to further their own arcane ends. And what of the swordsman called Traveller who, with his companion Ereko, has gone in search of a confrontation from which none have ever returned? As the Guard prepares to wage war, so Laseen's own generals and mages, the 'Old Hands', grow impatient at what they see as her mismanagement of the Empire. But could Laseen have outwitted them all? Could she be using the uprisings to draw out and finally eliminate these last irksome survivors from the days of her illustrious predecesor, Kellanved?

The Crimson Flake

Author: R. L. Knight

Publisher: Trafford Publishing

ISBN: 1412006333

Category: Fiction

Page: 336

View: 1918

The Crimson Flake is a tale of two tales, diverse and well separated by time and locale. Each is an emotional human struggle and the two are on a collision course. The first tale concerns a rather large and often irreverent man who silently craves danger and shares his life with a cat called Sam. They both love the same woman but while the cat openly demonstrates his emotions toward her the man struggles with feelings of love and commitment; feelings he knows deep down to be absolute truths. In addition, he wrestles with a nagging internal death wish and a disturbing intuitive ability; an ability he loathes but one that's kept him alive. The second involves a struggle we've known since the beginning when Eve encountered the serpent. There are evil things. They're where you would expect them but they're also where you wouldn't. You don't see the man in the crowd whose eyes are fixed on you, who follows you, who snatches you from your life and your life from you; unnoticed little slices of time. This is the story of such an encounter; of how evil can spring from the most benign and tranquil environment, of one person's courage and willpower to battle such madness: a battle that ultimately defines her life. It's the story of two reclusive brothers who live deep in an otherwise hushed and beautiful forest but who, because of an emotionally tortured mother and her twisted influence, have littered the peaceful woodland with the remains of nine vibrant young women; all in the name of God. But not all of the remains were scattered. No. The prettiest parts were saved. They're in the barn. One brother is inherently evil, born evil, and is descending deeper into the abyss. He is beyond redemption and only death can stop him. The other is struggling with thoughts he didn't know he could have before she came. He's being pulled in one direction by a despicable but settled way of life and in the other by her. She is Willie, a skinny, nineteen year-old, inner-city kid who is there quite by accident and fighting for two lives. Over time, bizarre circumstances cause the paths of the big man and the girl to converge. The two become allies and make for perhaps the strangest heroic duo imaginable. They stumble and falter along the way but the union is a formidable one. They recover, more powerful, in a final assault and the evil is left lying as dust beside the road.

While taking pictures at a society wedding, Kent Murdock stumbles upon a murderEvery society family has skeletons in its closets, but only the Cannings have a fresh corpse. Kent Murdock finds the dead man while taking pictures at the wedding of Patricia Canning and Roger Armington, scions of Boston’s most prominent—and camera-shy—families. Patricia and Murdock have been friends for years, and she invited him to photograph the wedding against her parents’ wishes. For the killer, Murdock’s appearance is very bad luck indeed. The dead man turns out to be Patricia’s ex-husband, whom she spent three days married to before the family pressured him into an annulment. He traveled to Boston in search of blackmail and found death instead. Whichever Canning killed him had hoped to sweep the murder under the rug. But Kent Murdock’s camera has a way of finding the truth, no matter how ugly it may be.
