Set in ancient Egypt, this is a love story, tender and at the same time erotic and sensitive, that will enchant and captivate the reader—with its splendour of historical detail and explicit, unflinchingly sanguine portrayal of a time notorious for its savagery and cruelty. Even though she was a princess, Zarah was still a prisoner and had to act out the part that had been set for her. As Egypt's struggle for power swept on, a young girl, whose beauty was beyond price, had become a pawn in the game of treachery and intrigue played by Egypt's greatest queen. Zarah was plotting her revenge on those who had killed the only people she had ever cared for, but she was being watched by Per Ibsen. Was he just waiting his time, learning the truth—until the moment he had her in his power?

Meanwhile, the small but spirited Nesbit is banished to the Forest of Lost Life for insulting the Konig, and must dodge hungry predators at every turn. The brothers struggle to reunite and defy the oppressors who threaten everyone and everything they have ever known and loved.

Set in southwestern New Mexico, the stories in James Terry’s stunning debut explore the joys, insecurities, and failures of memorable characters as they attempt to connect with—or disconnect from—others around them. The elderly landlady of the Darling Courts apartments hires a reclusive handyman who suffers from a fear of water, and the pair forms an unlikely bond. A worker’s unscrupulous plan to build a road in the middle of the desert is threatened by a lonely pregnant woman living in a trailer parked directly in his path. Overcome by nostalgia, a married trucker making the California run from Waco to Los Angeles takes a truck-stop waitress to the Deming drive-in theater with disappointing results. Together, these surprising stories uncover how our environment manifests itself in our everyday lives.
