The Stone in the Skull : The Lotus Kingdoms, Book One Paperback / softback

Part of the The Lotus Kingdoms series


This first volume of a new Eternal Sky trilogy takes readers over the dangerous mountain passes of the Steles of the Sky and south, into the Lotus Kingdoms. The Gage, a brass automaton created by a long-dead wizard of Messaline around the core of a human being, works as a mercenary.

He carries a message from the most powerful sorcerer of Messaline to the Rajni of the Lotus Kingdom.

With him is the Dead Man, a bitter survivor of the bodyguard of the deposed Uthman Caliphate, protecting the message and the Gage.

They are friends, of a peculiar sort. They are walking into a dynastic war between the rulers of the shattered bits of a once great Empire.
