Kami Khazud is a member of an acrobatic troupe led by his famous father. While Kami is a fine acrobat, he knows this is not his "kazuh", his spirit force, special talent or destiny. In this elegant feudal society, where nobles have absolute rights over the peasant class and intrigue is a way of life, Kami and his troupe must walk more than one kind of tightrope to survive...

When a noble known to have abused Kami is murdered, Kami must first prove his innocence and find the murderer. D'SHAI presents a fascinating, dangerously subtle society whose complexity is reminiscent of medieval Japan or the Byzantine court.

Author of the New York Times bestselling GUARDIANS OF THE FLAME series, D'SHAI and its sequel THE HOUR OF THE OCTOPUS present a colorful world and sympathetic characters that will appeal to fantasy and mystery readers.

About the Author

Joel Rosenberg (1954-2011) grew up reading Robert A. Heinlein, L. Sprague de Camp, Gordon R. Dickson and Rafael Sabatini, and found himself becoming a writer pretty much as a natural outcome of such early influences.

He is best known as the author of the Guardians of the Flame fantasy series, although his other science fiction and fantasy -- particularly the Mordred's Heirs series, published by Baen Books -- has been drawing him new fans.

Outside of science fiction and fantasy, he was known as a terrific amateur cook, a particularly good firearms instructor and remarkably bad bridge player. He lived in Minneapolis MN, with his wife Felicia Herman and two daughters, five cats, and the most useless dog ever born.
