Earthquake Weather by Tim Powers
In the final book of the Fault Lines Trilogy, the race is on to resurrect the murdered Fisher King of the American West and save the life of his successor from supernatural enemies
Scott Crane, the Fisher King of the American West, is dead, killed by a possessed Janis Cordelia Plumtree. Crane’s lifeless but uncorrupted body now lies in state at the Solville apartment complex, protected from spirits and dark magic by powerful charms and watched over by Pete and Angelica Sullivan. The Sullivans’ adopted son, Koot Hoomie, is Crane’s most likely successor. But Koot is only thirteen years old, and unprepared to assume the magical role for which he is destined. The most advantageous path would be to revive the dead king, but that will require the cooperation of the young woman who killed him, and the aid of a newly widowed winemaker touched by the god Dionysus. And with the evil supernatural opposition massing powerfully all around them, continued death seems far more likely than Crane’s resurrection.
Earthquake Weather concludes the astonishing Fault Lines Trilogy, which also includes Expiration Date and Last Call.
