Dark Fantasy. Existing beyond the boundaries of reality, the city of Palimpsest is a surreal realm of myth and magic that becomes common ground for four strangers -- locksmith Oleg, Italian bookbinder Ludovico, lost girl Sei, and lesbian beekeeper November -- whose matching tattoos hint at a shared destiny that they must work to discover.
There are two published editions of this odd, bifurcated novel. Depending on which copy you end up with, you'll either start with the story of the artist Francesco del Cossa, a Renaissance Italian fresco painter, or that of George, short for Georgia, a ‘60s teenager who recently lost her mother. Either way you will have the delightful experience of reading something truly innovative.
Epic Fantasy. This latest installment in the long-running Saga of Recluce continues where Cyador's Heirs left off, focusing on Lerial, second son of Duke Kiedron of Cigoerne. Though Lerial possess both mage and combat training, he can use neither in his attempts to negotiate a peace that will protect the already fragile Cigoerne from its warring neighbors, Heldya and Afrit.
