Product description

Amazon Review

To go through a portal, from the towns and cities of mundane reality, to some place where we do not know the rules, is not just a handy way of dumping your central character in a difficult situation. It is also a way of saying something about the provisional nature of the reality we already know--in Anthony's tale of high adventure and menace, it is clear that the plague of heartless supermen that is afflicting the realm of Eldh is also present in our own world. A bar owner and a doctor are shanghaied to Eldh--he does no more than cope, while she talks her way into Court and finds poised intrigue even more to her taste than Emergency Room surgery. This is standard wish-fulfilment stuff, but Anthony does it, at his occasional best, with real verve and invention. Part of the charm of stories of strange lands is traveller's tales of our own world-- Anthony does not stint in that estrangement which comes of bringing mundane skills to this new world. This is, among other things, a detective story in which Travis and Grace find quite simple knowledge of investigative technique puts them ahead of the game in a mediaeval world. --Roz Kaveney --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

nraveling in the dusty Colorado town of Castle City.  Strange symbols are carved into storefronts, and ancient legends come to life.  <br><br>Saloonkeeper Travis Wilder is handed an ornate iron box and a mysterious mission.  And in Denver, where dead men walk, ER doctor Grace Beckett is witness to a terrifying and inhuman scene of carnage.  Theirs is a destiny shrouded in a coming darkness, a destiny that draws them into the otherworld of Eldh....  <br><br>Eldh is a land of gods and monsters, myths and runecraft, conspiracy and blood.  It is a world that has secretly coexisted beside ours for millennia.  But now the boundary between worlds is crumbling in the face of a monstrous evil.  And Travis and Grace must save this strange land in order to safeguard their own world. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
