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
Come back to the Named Lands in this compelling sequel to Ken Scholes amazing novel Lamentation.
It is nine months after the end of the previous book. Many noble allies have come to the Ninefold Forest for a Feast in honor of General Rudolfos first-born child. Jin Li Tam, his wife and mother of his heir, lies in childbed.
As the feast begins, the doors of the hall fly open and invisible assassins begin attacking. All of Rudolfos noble guests are slain, including Hanric, the Marsh Queens Shadow. And on the Keepers Gate, which guards the Named Lands from the Churning Waste, a strange figure appears, with a message for Petronus, the Hidden Pope.
Thus begins the second movement of The Psalms of Isaak, Canticle.
In this sequel to "Lamentation," many noble allies have come to the Ninefold Forest for a feast in honor of General Rudolfo's first-born child. But as the feast begins, invisible assassins begin attacking the guests. Thus begins Book Two in The Psalms of Isaak series.
