Summary

From the multi-award winning Lee R Jackson. ------------------------------------------------------------ Mulligan gasped, sprawling on the floor. His face and hands, visible from his suit, quickly reddened and blistered. His close fitting outfit already displayed scorching. Keeray pretended to intently study her device, casually speaking, “That was a low setting. I'm guessing you didn’t find that exposure too comfortable.” She peered at him over the top of the rod. “Please note there are other very painful things I can do to you. So it would be much nicer for you to answer my little questions. Now, I'll repeat them. Why and how did you break into Medical and why did you choose Mahisa?” ------------------------------------------------------------ Mahisa is a woman who has her sight restored in a hospital by a ruthless surgeon but, whilst there, she unexpectedly becomes pregnant. Mahisa lives in a sealed city shaped by paranoia from previous chemical wars. She gets a good job but is taken ill with a miscarriage. Then a mysterious woman tells Mahisa her healthy child was taken from her body. So she has to steal back her baby boy. Mahisa also has to avoid the surgeon and a psychopathic cat-human Head of Security. In addition, Mahisa has to help people escape the city; but she must search for her child again after she lost him due to an experimental time machine. Plus Mahisa has to save the city from a race of psychopathic cat-humans. In the midst of all that, she has to shine in her job. ------------------------------------------------------------ This book is comparable to writings by Stephen King and Iain Banks.

    There's always one in the bunch. 
    The one who takes things a little too seriously—a little too far. The fanatic, if you will. 
    When a radical Pagan group blows into Tequila Key to celebrate the autumnal equinox, Althea Rose's psychic senses start tingling. She goes on full alert after meeting Horace, a Gandalf wannabe who reminds Althea of an old man playing dress up. One look into his pale eyes sets her straight, and soon Althea's best friend Luna is forcing her to learn a magickal protection spell before they investigate Horace and his festival. To make matters worse, Althea botches the spell and the results are . . . interesting to say the least. 
    Oh, and about that love life of hers? There's no time for love when bodies start turning up on deserted beaches. Soon, Althea is in way over her head as the full moon starts to rise and the clock counts down on the killer wandering Tequila Key's quiet streets.

    From the far reaches of the D'Haran Empire, Bishop Hannis Arc and the ancient Emperor Sulachan lead a vast horde of Shun-Tuk and other depraved "half-people" into the Empire's heart, raising an army of the dead in order to threaten the world of the living. Meanwhile, far from home, Richard Rahl and Kahlan Amnell must defend themselves and their followers from a series of terrifying threats, despite a magical sickness that depletes their strength and which, if not cured, will take their lives...sooner rather than later. 
    "Richard saw the point of a sword blade sticking out from between the man's shoulder blades. He spun back toward Richard after throwing the woman out of the opening, ready to attack. It seemed impossible, but the man looked unaffected by the blade that had impaled him through the chest. 
    It was then, in the weak light from the fire pit off to the side, that Richard got his first good look at the killer. 
    Three knives were buried up to their brass cross-guards in the man's chest. Only the handles were showing. Richard saw, too, the broken end of a sword blade jutting out from the center of the man's chest. The point of that same blade stuck out from the man's back. 
    Richard recognized the knife handles. All three were the style carried by the men of the First File. 
    He looked from those blades that should have killed the big man, up into his face. That was when he realized the true horror of the situation, and the reason for the unbearable stench of death." 
    From Terry Goodkind, author of the Sword of Truth series, comes a sweeping new novel of Richard Rahl, Kahlan Amnell, and their world.
