Summary

The Solar Queen series continues with a riotous adventure in space and a battle against a deadly plague.   Apprentice cargo-master Dane Thorson and the crew of the Solar Queen travel to the new planet Sargol to trade with the Salariki, a strange race of cat-men, for the fabulous Koros stones. When an Inter-Solar trading ship tries to cut in on their trading rights, they’re forced, according to Salariki custom, to fight a duel with a representative of the I-S ship in order to keep face. The Queen’s Captain Jellico wins, but the I-S ship leaves with a threat of further action.   Then, the Solar Queen takes off for Earth and en route a strange illness strikes them. They suspect the I-S are responsible, but can’t prove anything. Outlawed as a plague ship, they’re to be destroyed on sight lest they infect civilized planets. Thorson, Jellico, and the rest of their Terran crew must find a cure for the plague and escape imminent destruction.   Plague Ship is the 2nd book in the Solar Queen series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.  This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

    An aging wizard and his apprentice venture into a world where magic has died, hoping to save it before the same fate befalls their ownJaldis does not believe it at first. When the old wizard—blind, tongueless, able to see and speak through magic alone—peers into the Void between dimensions, he sees something terrible: a world where magic is dead, and whose inhabitants scream for someone to rescue them. Such a place must be studied, for if it is possible to kill magic, then that terrible fate could threaten his own world, too. With the help of his apprentice, Rhion, the wizard prepares for the treacherous crossing. To make the journey, they must withstand the hatred that their own world has for magic—a powerful force that the ignorant would wipe out if they could. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Barbara Hambly, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

    Lucia Librovich is waking up at an operating table. She doesn’t know why she is back to life; she can’t remember her past, most definitely has no future and is now almost a zombie. That’s not really the worst to happen in the post-apocalyptic world saturated with old and new horrors, where everything has become a commodity even the soul. But her blissful state won’t last long, because the spirit of her grandmother, Lucia Senior, will pave the way to the important task of discovery as to who is behind the trade of souls.
    Alternately, on the road between the living and the dead, of help and hindrance will be the spirit of a young girl, a smug vampire, a ghost of a fallen spirit deacon and a spirit of a dog trapped in a cat’s body. She will be receiving insider information from Inspector, an almost enlightened government official, but these won’t help her fight the powers and interests on “this” or “that” side. As always, the epilogue will be the result of coincidence, if coincidence even exists regardless of what dimension.
