Mother of Lies (Tor Fantasy)

Mother of Lies (Tor Fantasy) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The past fifteen years have not been kind to Celebre, the greatest city on Dodec. Its security was threatened and its Doge humiliated by the evil Bloodlord Stralg Hragson. The Doges children were kidnapped and taken over the Edge to Vigaelia. And if you think Stralg is bad, wait until you meet his sister Saltaja, a fanatic who sees no human cost as too great to keep her family in power and her goddess, the Mother of Lies, appeased.
 
But there are a few great hopes for the future of the city. The Mutineer, Marno Cavotti, who will not stand to see his hometown destroyed, is massing a powerful liberation movement inches beyond Stralgs grasp. And the four heirs of Celebre are wending their way back over the Edge to their birthplace.
 
Of course, even as Marno and the Celebre children work towards the common goal of defeating the Hrags, theyre all painfully aware that, once that hurdle is crossed, only one of them can wind up on Celebres throne.
 
Continuing the storyline begun in Children of Chaos, Mother of Lies is a fierce, kinetic romp that will keep readers guessing until the last blow is dealt.

Synopsis:

Continuing the story begun in "Children of Chaos," Duncan's latest entry is a fierce, kinetic romp that will keep readers guessing until the last blow is dealt.

Synopsis:

The conclusion of a stirring, politically-charged quest duology by acclaimed fantasy author Dave Duncan

About the Author

Originally from Scotland, Dave Duncan has lived all his adult life in Western Canada, having enjoyed a long career as a petroleum geologist before taking up writing. Since discovering that inventing imaginary worlds is more satisfying than poking holes in the real one, he has published three dozen novels, mostly in the fantasy genre, but also in young adult, science fiction, and historical. He has at times written as Sarah B. Franklin and Ken Hood. He married his wife Janet in 1959 and they have one son and two daughters.
