Summary

"'Do you have any questions?' the Seeker asked. 'About the routine of the dungeon? The times you will be fed? The questions you will be asked? The instruments of torture I use?'" 
The prisoner knew that the Eternal Dungeon was a place where suspected criminals were broken by torture, and he was prepared to hold out against any methods used against him – except the method he could not anticipate. 
Arrested on the charge of committing a particularly horrendous murder, Elsdon Taylor arrives at the Eternal Dungeon in fear of the harsh methods used by the torturers, called Seekers, to draw confessions from their prisoners. 
But his Seeker's methods are for more devious than Elsdon had expected. Now Elsdon is faced with a choice that will shape his future . . . as well as the future of his Seeker. 
A winner of the 2011 Rainbow Awards (within the "Eternal Dungeon" omnibus), this suspenseful novella (short novel) can be read on its own or as the introductory story for The Eternal Dungeon, an alternate history series set in a nineteenth-century prison where the psychologists wield whips. 
The Eternal Dungeon series is part of Turn-of-the-Century Toughs, a cycle of diverse alternate history series (The Eternal Dungeon, Dungeon Guards, Michael's House, Life Prison, Commando, Waterman, Young Toughs, and Dark Light) about adults and youths on the margins of society, and the people who love them. Set in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the novels and stories take place in an alternative version of America that was settled by inhabitants of the Old World in ancient times. As a result, the New World retains certain classical and medieval customs.

    A trilogy of swords, sorcery and spectacular adventure set in the Witch World.  Sword of Ice: A simple half-breed serving under Lord Hervon in the unending battle against the Forces of Darkness, young Yonan never thought he was made for warfare. Then he discovers a strange sword: an ancient blade of incredible power that holds the spirit of the ancient hero Tolar that will forge Yonan into the greatest weapon in Witch World.  Sword of Lost Battles: Yonan and his loyal friend Uruk have proven themselves as formidable warriors in battle after battle. And now, only they can stop the dreaded Targi—the near-invincible warlock who leads the Darkness. To defeat him, Yonan and Uruk must find Targi’s only vulnerability—a weak point that takes them into the past and the legendary Lost Battle.  Sword of Shadows: With Yonan and Uruk still missing in the past, the untrained witch Crytha learns that she alone must hold back the Darkness by countering the power of Laidan, the vile sorceress who has pledged herself to Targi. To overcome such a foe, Crytha will need the help of a lethal, legendary weapon that must be tamed before it can be used. And if she fails to tame the Sword of Shadows, all of Witch World may fall.
