Only Manwe the Panther stands in his way.
Left without the rebellion he started, the savannah’s legendary thief must cobble together a plan to defeat Voduni Calla before the devil’s damnation succeeds. Backed by the enigmatic sorcerer Cleon and his fellow thief Folami, he delves deep into the savannah’s darkest corners hoping beyond hope there exists a means to defeat the undead and their master.
Even if that costs him his life.
In this pulse-pounding conclusion to a series inspired by Michael Moore’s V for Vendetta and Charles Saunders’ Imaro, all fates are found, all destinies are decided and for one thief fighting for freedom, liberty stands at the edge of oblivion.
Brought to you by the award-winning Sword & Sorcery author Jay Requard, The Saga of the Panther continues in this final installment of a thrilling new fantasy that blends Fritz Leiber’s Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser with George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones set in a secondary-world Africa where the Greeks have invaded and danger stalks within every shadow.
Yet when a vicious priest rises from the ranks of the same rebellion he forged, Manwe must choose between the safety of the savannah and the cause he holds so dear. The fires of revolution spread, blood runs, and for one thief caught in an unstoppable tide of destruction, freedom may not be an option.
Brought to you by the award-winning Sword & Sorcery author Jay Requard, The Saga of the Panther continues in this second installment of a thrilling new fantasy that blends Fritz Leiber’s Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser with George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones set in a secondary-world Africa where the Greeks have invaded and danger stalks within every shadow.
As the Gypian Empire grinds its heel on the natives of Juut, Manwe the Panther strives to throw back his peoples’ oppressors from the shadowed corners of Tolivius, an archaic city ruled by the corrupt and wealthy. With only his blade, his wits, and an unshakable will, he risks life and love to fuel a rebellion.
Yet every shadow breeds darker things than even the Gypians can muster. Pushed to the limits of his skills, Manwe faces off with horrid shamans, ancient evils, and a cunning wizard who beguiles his mind and his heart. When every step is questioned, every decision doubted, he must steel himself with a harsh, unquestionable truth:
All revolutions begin in the dark.
Perhaps most appealing of all to our sensibilities are those who dwell on the border, the witch doctors, necromancers, and haunted creatures that find their existence on the boundaries between the living and the dead, seeking to intercede, or perhaps to draw the unwary across that narrow ledge.
All of them, the living, the dead, and the undead can be found within these pages, collected together under the auspices of Death, the one surety who will follow all of life.
In The Death God’s Chosen, ten excellent authors seek to examine questions ranging from the nature of the undead and their humanity to the sadness and loss that grip the ones who were left behind. And to explore the nature of those who perch on the boundary between: the necromancer and the witch doctor, long figures of frightening tales and disfigured dreams.
So come, let the spirits of death intrigue and enthrall you in The Death God’s Chosen!
