Overview

Philip José Farmer's Khokarsa series records the history of a lost civilization that thrived in the heart of ancient Africa twelve thousand years ago at the twilight of the last ice age. The novels Hadon of Ancient Opar, Flight to Opar, and The Song of Kwasin told the story of the heroes Hadon of Opar and Kwasin of Dythbeth, as they battled a power-hungry tyrant who sought to overthrow the beneficent order of mother earth goddess Kho and raise up the mandate of baleful sun god Resu in its place.

Now the epic saga of Khokarsa continues in Blood of Ancient Opar, a brand-new sequel novella to Hadon, King of Opar by Christopher Paul Carey, chronicling Hadon's further adventures in the fallen empire's last remaining queendom. Using Farmer's own notes, Carey at last fills in the missing history of a civilization lost to the mists of time...

On the heels of a devastating invasion by a ruthless pirate lord's army, the destiny of Khokarsa's last remaining queendom hangs in the balance. Even as King Hadon leads his forces to victory against the raiders, the conniving oracle of Opar and the high priest of the Flaming God conspire to place themselves upon the ivory throne, launching a civil war that rages throughout the city. But deep beneath Opar, a secret message from Sahhindar, the god of Time, has lain buried for centuries, waiting for Hadon and his daughter La to uncover it. Soon Hadon comes to suspect that La conceals her own mysterious plans, but will they save the city of gold and jewels from utter destruction--or shatter the foundation of Time itself?
