When the Emperor is murdered, Maia, his isolated, youngest son, abruptly becomes the Emperor Edrehasivar VII. Aided only by his secretary and bodyguards, the new half-goblin emperor fights to change the course of a thousand-year old empire. Fantasy combines with mystery, and politics with suspense, as Maia must identify the murderer of his father before the killer strikes again. Maia Drazhar, hero of The Goblin Emperor, is easily the most charming fictional hero since Lois Bujold's Miles Vorkosigan. Watching this likeable hero overcome all obstacles to establish himself is terrific fun.

"Go and talk to the girl in the green silk gown, Who died on Sparrow Hill Road." Teenage Rose Marshall was murdered on Sparrow Hill Road over sixty years ago. Now a ghost, she hitch-hikes along the roads of North America, helping travellers in danger. Not all the people who encounter Rose survive the experience, but most have reason to be grateful for her help. Eerie and charming, Rose's encounters in the afterlife are stories about justice, vengeance and love.
