Bloodstone by Karl Edward Wagner

Kane. The Mystic Swordsman becomes the living link with the awesome power of a vanished superrace.

In the dark swamp where toadmen croak and cower, slumbers a secret relic of the days when creatures from the stars ruled the Earth. In the booty captured in a savage raid, Kane discovers a ring, a bloodstone, which is key to the power that lies buried, inactive but not dead, within the forest.

Now Kane, whose bloody sword has slashed and killed for the glory of other rulers, can scheme to rule the Earth - himself!

About the Author

Karl Edward Wagner (1945 - 1994)
Karl Edward Wagner was born in Knoxville, Tennessee. He earned a degree in history from Kenyon College in 1967 and a degree in psychiatry from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Despite this training, Wagner disliked the medical profession and abandoned it upon establishing himself as a writer; his disillusionment with the medical profession can be seen in the stories 'The Fourth Seal' and 'Into Whose Hands'. As well as being a multi-award winning author, Wagner was a highly successful editor and publisher of horror, science fiction and heroic fantasy, creating a definitive three-volume set of Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian fiction, and edited the long-running and genre-defining Year's Best Horror and Fantasy series. Wagner is perhaps best known for his creation of the long-running series of stories featuring Kane, the Mystic Swordsman. He died in 1994.

Today, l got my new glasses. I can finally see again! <br> <br> l have terrible vision. You know the letters you have to read at the eye doctor's office? I couldn't even read them with my glasses on. Terrible. I say l'm slowly going blind. When l put them on, everything, even the most simpl things, were ten times more beautiful. <br> <br> Not much happened today, other than the threat of snow. Well, at least southern people think of the percipitation as snow. They were all at Walmart, buying bread and milk. <br> <br> That's all, l guess.

What is this?! People are ostensibly writing about one of the great fantasy authors, Karl Edward Wagner, and instead they plug their pet books (silly detective novels, diet books, etc.). Can't you weed out this tripe? What a waste of time!

DI Wesley Peterson is summoned to investigate a possible murder in a hotel room. It looks like routine matter but then it is revealed that the man used a fake name and the man in question is linked to a cold case; the murder of a child in 1979. Now DCI Gerry Heffeman, recovering from a gunshot in the line of duty, and Wesley must find the killer, because more dead bodies are turning up... This is the first book I have read by Kate Ellis and I admit that starting with book 19 in a series doesn&rsquo;t feel like the most perfect start. But I never really had a problem with that because I was so enthralled with the story and the characters that I never had any real problem with not having read the previous books. Sure there is a lot of back history, but instead of being hindered by that I just found myself more curious of reading the precious 18 books. The plot was really good, there were lots of different things going on at the same time, the cold case murder, the murder at the hotel and an archaeological dig at a ruined village that tumbled in the sea during WW1, but all these happenings had connections to each other and let to a thrilling ending. I liked Wesley Peterson, he is a good police that knows he is spending too much time working and too little with his family and feeling guilty about it. I&rsquo;m looking forward to see how it will go for him in the future, especially since he is working with a DS Rachel Tracey who has feelings for him. He seems to be happy married but a close working relationship with a woman attracted to him can be dangerous, especially since his wife seems to be a bit jealous of Rachel&hellip;no smoke without fire... I'm really looking forward to read the previous books in the series since I can&rsquo;t to know more about his past and how it must have been coming to a little community as a black police after working at the MET. This crime novel was terrific, great story, great characters. Couldn't find anything with it that I didn&rsquo;t like!
