The Isle Beyond Time

The Isle Beyond Time

Lovi: illusion or not, the scene had been lovely, the lust heady and compelling, their mutual desire entirely real. But now he was old and drained, and she was again neutered by her guise, a boy almost too young to have felt such pangs.

GOOD AND EVIL... She defeated a demon and imprisoned a mad druid in a crystal serpent's egg. She changed the course of history, and never doubted which side she was on. Now the rules have changed. In the shifting landscapes Celts call the otherworld, friends may be foes, good deeds yield evil results, and childhood fantasies become adult nightmares. Braving pillaging Vikings on the Loire, battling a crazy sorcerer in the Broceliande forest, and confronting the nine Gallicenae, druidesses who rule the Isle of the Dead, the only friend Pierrette can trust may be the Evil one himself, the Eater of Gods. And now the last battle looms, a battle in which Pierrette, she who would save the Past and the Future, can trust no one and nothing, not even the devil she thought she knew. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management). [The Sacred Pool, first of Pierrette's adventures is] "Immensely readable and elegantly simple in execution . . . this vivid reimagining of Western humanity's turbid adolescence engages, enchants and enthralls." ¾Publishers Weekly [starred review] "[Simply Human is] highly entertaining and full of action ... a divertingly strange future, one that should appeal equally to fans of sf and fantasy adventure." ¾Locus
