As they brave a perilous journey through the Steles of the Sky and into the Lotus Kingdoms, a pair of mercenaries -- brass automaton Gage and the Dead Man, a former bodyguard for a deposed caliph -- think they're delivering a message from a powerful wizard to a beleaguered rajni (ruler). Little do they know they're wandering into the middle of a dynastic war. Set in the world of the Eternal Sky trilogy, The Stone in the Skull is the first of a new series -- Description by Gillian Speace
