"The Vazdru do not weep."
"Who weeps? Not I."
"Each word spoken was a tear."
-- from Delirium's Mistress
Delirium's Mistress is the fourth book of the stunning arabesque high fantasy series Tales from the Flat Earth, which, in the manner of The One Thousand and One Nights, portrays an ancient world in mythic grandeur via connected tales.
Long time ago when the Earth was Flat, beautiful indifferent Gods lived in the airy Upperearth realm above, curious passionate demons lived in the exotic Underearth realm below, and mortals were relegated to exist in the middle.
She is the neglected daughter of Azhrarn, Demon Lord of Darkness, and she has many names -- Soveh, Azhriaz, Sovaz, Atmeh. Half demon, half mortal, she is Moon's Fire, vulnerable child, vengeful sorceress, terrifying Goddess of a wondrous city of cruel delirium that spans thirteen kingdoms, and a humble priestess of life's true wisdom. When her lover, Chuz, Prince Madness himself, is taken from her, she who is Daughter of Wickedness and Delirium's Mistress finds herself on a journey spanning an eternity of lives, in her search for love and redemption, and the ultimate truth of humanity, Godhood, and self.
Come within this ancient world of brilliant darkness and beauty, of glittering palaces and wondrous elegant beings, of cruel passions and undying love.
Discover the exotic wonder that is the Flat Earth.
