Overview

In Anavatan, the city of the Silver Lake, the gods manifest on a regular basis. But if you are among the unpledged, it is hard to survive, especially during the three-night-long chaos known as Havo's Dance. When Havo's storms sweep through Anavatan, anyone who is unaffiliated had best find a safe place to hide or they risk madness or death. But this year, three young street orphans have been chosen for special attention by Incasa, the god of prophecy.When that God's dice roll during the height of Havo's Dance, these three boys-thieves and con artists-will discover their destinies. One will be bound by a life-or-death pledge that will see him marked as the future Champion of the War God, another forced to walk a perilous road as he seeks to master his talent as a seer, and the last will be cast forth from the city and claimed by the hungry spirits seeking a way into Anavatan and the precious power contained in the Silver Lake.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Nestled on the shore of Gol-Beyaz, the Silver Lake, the enchanted city of Anavatan, where the gods make their homes, enjoys the protection of a wall of magic that keeps out human invaders and hungry spirits. During the annual revelry of Havo's Dance, Incasa, the God of Prophecy, chooses three young men from among the thieves, con artists, and others unsworn to any god and sets them apart for a special destiny. The events that unite and divide friends Brax and Spar and their mutual enemy Graize form the heart of a prophecy that will change the world. Patton, author of the "Branion Realm" novels (The Stone Prince; The Painter Knight; The Granite Shield; The Golden Sword) begins a new series set in an exotic world reminiscent of medieval Turkey. This fluidly paced fantasy adventure belongs in most libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
