Kothifir the Great, ruled by an obscenely obese god-king, peopled with colorful, dueling guilds, guarded by the Southern Host of the Kencyrath. Here Jame arrives, only to find that the turbulent city claims more of her attention as the Talisman than the Host’s training fields do as a second year randon cadet.

Mysteries abound: Caravans plunge deep into the hostile Southern Wastes and return laden with fabulous riches—from what source, and why do they crumble to dust if not claimed by the god-king’s touch? Karnids from Urakarn prowl the shadows, preaching the return of their mysterious prophet. An unstable Kencyr temple rumbles in the outer, decayed rings of the city. Then too, someone in the Host’s camp is trying to get Jame killed.

In order to save the present, Jame must search the past, be it fifteen years ago when as a boy her brother Torisen arrived here, unknown and unwanted, or three thousand years ago when the Wastes were a great sea ringed with rich civilizations. Somehow, Tori survived. Somehow, the cities of the plain were destroyed in one catastrophic night. Now Kothifir`s gods have lost their power and its proud towers are falling. What curse out of the past has struck it? Jame, a potential Nemesis, must try to stop the destruction—without undoing time itself.

Pat Hodgill (full name - Patricia Christine Hodgell / Patricia Christine Hodgell) was born on March 16, 1951 in Des Moines, Iowa. Patricia`s father and mother were professional artists. Hodgill earned her Master of Arts in English Literature from the University of Minnesota. The first attempts at writing took place in the second half of the seventies, and in 1982, Patricia`s debut novel God Stalk (1982) was released, which was nominated for the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award-1983 and Locus-1983 (took 7th place in category "debut novel"). With this book began the fantasy cycle "Chronicles of the Kencyrath", written at the intersection of adventure-rogue, dark and epic fantasy. At the same University of Minnesota, Hodgill received her Ph.D. in 19th century English literature with her dissertation on Valier Scott`s famous novel Ivanhoe. And then came the second novel of the writer, which continued the "Chronicles of Kenzirat" - "Eclipse of the Moon" ("Dark of the Moon", 1985). He was also nominated for the 1986 Mythopoeic Fantasy Award and 1986 Locus (ranked 10th in the Fantasy Novel category). In 1988, both of Hodgill`s novels were published in a single volume entitled Chronicles of the Kencyrath. It took almost a decade to wait for the sequel. The third novel of the cycle was released in 1994 - "Seeker`s Mask" (1994). In 2000, Meisha Merlin published Pat Hodgill`s omnibus "Dark of the Gods," which brought together the first two novels of the cycle and the accompanying story "Bones" under one cover. Two years later, the collection of the writer "Blood and Ivory: A Tapestry" (2002) was reprinted, first published in the 90s. Several more stories have been added for this edition. It was only in August 2006 that the fourth novel, The Chronicle of Kenzirata, To Ride a Rathorn, appeared. 12 years have passed since the release of the previous part of the cycle. You can also note the story "Child of Darkness" (1980), which has nothing to do with the main line of the story about Kenzirat, and is a kind of alternative (and even darker) view of this world. The story was nominated for Locus-1981 (18th place). Hodgill is a graduate of two well-known writing seminars, Clarion Writers Workshop and Milford Writers Workshop. She has participated in many American science fiction conventions. Patricia prepared a science fiction and fantasy audio course for the University of Minnesota, distributed on audio cassettes. For many years she worked at the Faculty of English Literature at the Department of the University of Wisconsin in Oshkosh. In 2006, Patricia Hodgill retired from the university and devoted herself entirely to her studies in literature. Rumor has it that Baen Books has shown interest in her next, as yet unwritten novel about Kenzirates. The writer still lives in the city of Oshkosh in an old wooden house of the nineteenth century, which belonged to several generations of her family. Her favorite hobbies are reading science fiction, knitting, embroidery and caring for cats. Hodgill may be familiar to our readers from the story “A Ballad of the White Plague”, published in Russian as part of the anthology “The Confidential Casebook of Sherlock Holmes”, 1998, compiled by Marvin Kaye). In the West, all of Pat Hodgill`s works are published under the name P.K. Hodgell (PC Hodgell). Taken from https://fantlab.ru/autor1062
