Beyond Sanctuary (Beyond Series #1)

Publisher: Perseid Press
ISBN13: 9780985166809
Pages: 398
Genre: Fantasy

Blurb: 

THE SACRED BAND GOES NORTH – TO WAR!
Here is the new, revised and expanded Author’s Cut edition of BEYOND SANCTUARY, the first ever full-length novel to take you BEYOND the notorious Thieves World™ fantasy universe, where gods still stalk the land, warring with demons and human sorcerers and trampling unfortunate humanity underfoot.
If you like stories of bold brave knights employed in meritorious duty, or tales of ladies delicate and fair, be warned. Beyond Sanctuary, set at the foot of notorious Wizardwall, may be too much for your sensibilities. There wizards, bards, and maidens mingle with murderers and thieves, and the fight breaking out at the next table may be the one that ends your life.
The hero of BEYOND SANCTUARY is Tempus, leader of mercenaries and warrior-servant of Vashanka, god of storm and war. With Niko, Cime, and the Froth Daughter Jihan, Tempus faces the archmage Datan and his unholy followers – in a battle for the Rankan Empire’s survival and that of his very soul. BEYOND SANCTUARY is the first novel in Janet Morris’ BEYOND series, followed by BEYOND THE VEIL and BEYOND WIZARDWALL.

This is a title I actually received recently courtesy of the publisher via NetGalley. I am excited about this but hoping it is an acceptable introduction to the author’s work as I have no prior knowledge of Thieve’s World or any pre-existing series. Have you read Janet Morris or this particular book? The synopsis certainly reads as fantasy, but I am seeing some adding this to science fiction as well. So I am curios. What is on your TBR that you plan on tackling soon?

  1. I’ve read a couple of the Thieves’ World anthologies and I read the book after this by accident, not realizing it was a 2nd book. If you like grim, perverted mercenaries, Morris will fill your cup to overflowing…
