Mistress of the Catacombs

Mistress of the Catacombs

Return to the the epic tale of the Lord of the Isles, David Drake's saga of magic and might.

For the first time in a thousand years, the Kingdom of the Isles has a government and a real ruler: Prince Garric of Haft. The enemies joining against him intend to destroy not only the kingdom but humankind as well.

The rebels gathering in the West outnumber the royal army and the magic they wield can strike into the heart of the palace itself, but far greater dangers lie behind those. On the far fringes of the Isles, ancient powers ready themselves for a titanic struggle in which human beings are mere pawns--or fodder!

Reptilian and insect monsters from out of the ages march on the kingdom, commanded by wizards no longer human or never human at all. If unchecked, their ravening slaughter will sweep over the Isles as destructively as a flood of lava. Garric, ripped from his time and body, must make new allies if he and his kingdom are to survive.

Watching them all from the blackness of a tomb walled off in time and space, the Mistress waits...

And her fangs drip poison!

    The mold of heroes set to the wind only to end up together is being worn thin. Still he is a master at this; his imagination never falters in the situations he places all the characters in.I'd like to...

    I love these characters. There is so much depth and uniqueness in each of the characters the story follows. I feel like I know them, yet they constantly surprise me. And the magic, as always in Drake'...

    Pretty good. His take on Babylonian religion actually lines up with what some say about torsion physics. We also see why God urged his people to deal with Babylonian-Middle Eastern paganism in so viol...
