Summary

Young Remeya - fosterling and maid-in-waiting to King Xavo's sister - worships the old and forbidden horned god alongside the princess. 
 
A worship made taboo half a millennium ago. Performed still in secret by a few. Quietly tolerated by the king. 
 
Until madness took him, there beside the stone well on the grassy hillside of the castle's outer bailey. 
 
As the king's mind unravels into violence, no one near him remains safe, not even his best beloved. Especially not his best beloved. 
 
Worse, Remeya believes King Xavo's insanity arose from her own mistake. Because she said yes, instead of no. 
 
When life itself hangs in the balance, putting wrong to right is surely past praying for. Or is it? 
 
Epic fantasy in which old beliefs and old loyalties clash with hidden magic in the Middle Ages of J.M. Ney-Grimm's god-touched North-lands. 
 
 
EXCERPT FROM HUNTING WILD 
 
The pebbles of the underground stream bed dug into the soles of her feet, and the chill of the shallow water numbed her toes. 
 
The rough surface of the ceiling sloped down, scraping her back, forcing her to bend, to crouch, to curl enough that she caught her balance with her hands in the wet. 
 
The light faded swiftly. Had she gone far enough? 
 
She paused, eyes adjusting. 
 
The glimmering ripples of the spring's source cast dim flickers against the rocks pressing her down.

    Inez Urso is beginning to have her doubts. Her business associate Thomas Argeneau has some interesting traits, like an allergic reaction to the sun, excellent night vision, and not much of an appetite for food. And to top it all off, he just tried to bite her neck . . . but maybe that was a sign of passion. If so, she'd be happy to experience more, despite her determination not to mix business with pleasure. 
    Well, if not forever, at least two hundred years. Inez is the most beautiful woman he's seen in centuries. Those luscious lips, seductive curves, and her elegant neck . . . he just couldn't resist the temptation of one little bite. Now Thomas will do anything to convince her that only an immortal like him can satisfy her all night long . . .

    An inexplicable plague of deadly fire threatens America’s cities and towns in this epic tale of supernatural terror from an acclaimed Grand Master of horror and suspense From Baltimore, Maryland, to San Jose, California, to Homer, Alaska, a rash of devastating and unexplained fires is bringing untold death and destruction to the United States. Unexpectedly and inexplicably, giant fireballs are erupting out of nowhere in private houses, apartment buildings, businesses, malls, and hospitals, incinerating everything and everyone in the vicinity. These are not accidents; every conflagration is of a frighteningly suspicious nature. There is no pattern, there is no warning, and there is no mercy as the body count rapidly soars.   For California security expert Carter Milne, the plague is a nightmare that threatens to unravel her world when it strikes too close to home. For reporter William Ridour, it’s the story of a lifetime. Fireman Frank Vickery sees it as an abomination, and FBI agents McPherson and Bethune suspect it’s the realization of the government’s worst terrorist fears. But the truth these citizens pursue, the horror that now unites them, is something far more terrible, with roots in very dark and poisonous soil—and it’s leading them beyond the borders of normal human experience into a realm of pure preternatural evil.
