"Come at once. Ares is dying." So reads the frantic message from Surchataine Nicole that brings Ares' adopted son Henry out of exile after two years. When Henry arrives at Westford, he discovers vultures gathering over the province, eyeing Ares' twin 14-year-old daughters, Sophie and Bonnie. Accustomed to patrolling the wild western border of Lystra to keep out slavers, Henry must now readjust to courtly intrigues – a task made all the more difficult by the meaningless but conspicuous leper's brand on his hand.
New York copywriter Royce Lindel takes a chance on a camping trip with two female friends in remote Big Bend, Texas. Little do they know that their schedule of activities includes being dumped in the desert by their guide. Matters look bleak until they stumble across other campers: three men whose business in the wilderness involves drugs and…
Matters come to a head when Surchatain Magnus of Scylla comes for an unexpected visit. He brings not only the spoiled, immature son he plans to marry off to Sophie, but a surprise guest who has designs on a most unwilling Henry. In Extremis is the seventh book of the Latter Annals of Lystra. Book Eight is All Mirrors and All Suns.
Robin Hardy is the author of The Annals of Lystra, The Latter Annals of Lystra, The Streiker Saga, The Sammy Series, Padre, His Strange Ways, The Idecis, and Unknown Name, Unknown Number: A Wimsey Reade Mystery.
