Shroud of Eternity picks up where Terry Goodkind’s New York Times bestseller Death’s Mistress left off, promising a thrilling brew of bloodshed, sex, deception, and sorcery. The formidable sorceress Nicci and her companions—the newly powerless Nathan and the youthful Bannon—set out on another quest after driving ruthless Norukai slavers out of Renda Bay. Their mission: restore Nathan’s magic and, for Nicci, save the world. Guided by the witch-woman Red's mysterious prophecy, the trio makes their way south of Kol Adair towards a wondrous city shrouded behind time, Ildakar. But the grotesque omens on their path to Nathan's salvation—severed Norukai heads on pikes, a genetically modified monster, and a petrified army of half a million—are just a taste of the unimaginable horrors that await within the Shroud of Eternity.

Brooklyn is home to thousands of drug dealers, murderers, rapists, thieves, gang bangers, and mafia. There are also some really unpleasant people--like me. My name is Leo Malone, and I'm a vampire. I've lived in Brooklyn for nearly a century, and I've grown to like the place. I used to be a Sheriff; the law enforcement within the vampire enclave. I got fired a few years back for being too violent, and that's saying something when your primary duty is to cut the head off some vampire for stepping out of line. So now I do other things. Officially, I'm a private investigator. Unofficially, I take out the trash when it's too nasty leave on the curb. Anyway, a hot mutt (half werewolf) and her brother hire me to find their father after he doesn't come home. But even playing dogcatcher for a rabid werewolf running amok and tearing apart the populace is a simple job compared to the giant conspiracy pile I step in trying to find him. Now, not only do I have to track down a creature capable of turning me into a chew toy if I'm not careful, I have an untold number of my own kind out for my head. That's why I live by the motto "do unto others before they do unto you," and I'm damn good at doing unto others. Shrouds of Darkness is a gritty and witty action novel that will keep your eyes glued to the page. Shrouds of Darkness contains explicit language and violence and may not be suitable for younger readers.

Many of the poems contained herein follow excerpts from my books; NAM The Devils Domain, The Pimp of Saigon and Undaunted Valor. These poems were created to envision facts of war, inspired by my Vietnam War experiences; some are inspired by myths reported by biased American newspaper, radio and television media. Still others were created to reflect individual valor, human suffering and mans inhumanity to man. Myths: The biased American media reported that the U.S. Military lost many encounters with the enemy in Vietnam. The TET offensive was an NVA/VC Victory and that America had lost its first war ever as witnessed on television during the fall of Saigon, April 30, 1975. Facts: The American military was not defeated in Vietnam. The American military did not lose a battle of any consequence. From a military standpoint, the war was a major military defeat for the Vietcong and North Vietnamese Army. Militarily, the 1968 TET offensive resulted in a total defeat of the Communist forces on all fronts. It resulted in the death of some 45,000 NVA troops and the complete, if not total destruction of the Vietcong elements in South Vietnam. The fall of Saigon happened April 30, 1975; two years after the American military had left Vietnam. The last American troops departed Vietnam in their entirety March 29, 1973. It is impossible to lose a war we had stopped fighting. We fought to an agreed governmental stalemate and turned over all military responsibility to the South Vietnamese army which included jets, helicopters, tanks, trucks, weapons and ammo. The U. S. peace settlement was signed in Paris on January 27, 1973. It called for the release of all U. S. prisoners and withdrawal of U. S. forces. Effective April 30, 1975 the South Vietnamese army outnumbered the North Vietnamese army by at least two to one in all categories, men, machines, aircraft and firepower. The U. S. A. supported the French military with 98% if its military costs and fought Communism in Vietnam for a total involvement for 10,000 days. With the South Vietnamese army now in charge of their own countrys destiny they never fought, but instead surrendered unconditionally to North Vietnam within nine days. The 140,000 evacuees in April 1975, during the fall of Saigon, consisted entirely of Vietnamese civilians and military. There were twice as many causalities in Southeast Asia (primarily Cambodian) the first two years following the end of U. S. involvement than there were during all the years of the Vietnam War. The media perceived loss of the war, the countless assassinations and torture visited upon Vietnamese, Laotians and Cambodians is due to the American media for their undying support by misrepresentation of the anti-war movement in the United States. As Americans, we must support our military men and women involved in the War On Terrorism, for once again the American media is working tirelessly to undermine their efforts and force a psychological loss or stalemate for the United States.
