Spell of Fate (#3)

Previous: Spell of Intrigue | Next: Spell of Apocalypse

Trouble is converging on the imperial city of Peridol, and whatever dance the gods are planning, Maximillian the Vaguely Disreputable wants to stay out of it. No such luck, though—it’s up to Max and his friends the Great Karlini and the Creeping Sword to unseat the despotic gods, who treat the mortal realm like a giant chess board. But with the gods fighting amongst themselves, no one is going to win this battle anytime soon…. Until a long-forgotten player re-enters the dance.

Reviews

“A winner […] I was utterly hooked. Its not a belly-laugh-inducing parody of a fantasy so much as an off-the-wall kind of fantasy in its own right. The nearest I can get to the general tenor is The Man from U.N.C.L.E. with magic rings instead of talking pens.”

Interzone Magazine

“Like riding on a racing carousel.”
