Annotation:
Cowritten by three writers known for producing sizable novels, this gargantuan epic retrofits 1537 Venice into New Age duds. The Icelander Erik Hakkonen arrives in Mainz to serve the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire as bodyguard and tutor to the Emperor's promiscuous nephew, Prince Manfred. The unlikely pair sojourn to Venice, with the twin aim of whetting the Prince's prodigious sexual appetite and preparing for the Emperor's politically motivated trip there. Sorcerers, shapeshifters, and mages await them in this straightforward, heavily-researched alternate fantasy.
Author Bio
Mercedes Lackey
Mercedes Lackey's father was an avid science fiction reader, and it was through him that she was introduced to the genre. One of first sf books she read was Andre Norton's BEAST MASTER. Lackey began to write her own stories set in Norton's Witch World. Setting aside writing to attend Purdue University, she graduated in 1972 with a B.Sc. in biology. After graduation, she held a variety of odd jobs, including security guard and artist's model, before ending up, almost by accident, as a computer programmer. In 1982, she moved to Tulsa and went to work for American Airlines. She also began to write again, eventually striking up a correspondence with writer Marion Zimmer Bradley. In 1985, Lackey's first story was published in an anthology edited by Bradley. Lackey had long been involved in the somewhat nefarious world of science fiction conventions and gatherings, and began to write song lyrics to be performed at these events. Originally, she began to compose songs about scenes she was writing in order to strip down the writing to the barest minimum and get a handle on what she really wanted to say--a technique she continues to use. Her songs proved very popular (over 50 of them have been set to music and recorded!), and one attracted the attention of writer C. J. Cherryh, who encouraged Lackey to write her first novel, 1987s ARROWS OF THE QUEEN. That book turned out to be the first in what was to be the lengthy, and on-going, Valdemar series. A prolific and popular writer, Lackey has written, or co-written, more than 50 books since 1982, and she shows no signs of slowing down.

Kirkus Reviews
"[E]very page shows solid research and style that owes nothing to the banalities and false pearls usually strung together in fat, churned-out, formula fantasies." 02/01/2002
