Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing, Beaverton, OR
In Requiem (Tor), the fourth book in Ken Scholes's Psalms of Isaak series, the plots within plots are expanding as the characters seek their way out of the maze of intrigue. Who is the Crimson Empress, and what does her conquest of the Named Lands really mean? Who holds the keys to the Moon Wizard's Tower? Hidden truths reveal even deeper truths, and nothing is as it seemed to be.
Synopses & Reviews
An ancient weapon has completely destroyed the city of Windwir. From many miles away, Rudolfo, Lord of the Nine Forest Houses, sees the horrifying column of smoke rising. He knows that war is coming to the Named Lands.
Nearer to the Devastation, a young apprentice is the only survivor of the city - he sat waiting for his father outside the walls, and was transformed as he watched everyone he knew die in an instant.
Soon all the Kingdoms of the Named Lands will be at each others' throats, as alliances are challenged and hidden plots are uncovered.
