Overview

Jefferji Tamisen has lived a sheltered existence. Raised by a Rajput nobleman, he has devoted himself to the sacred dance of Sri Krsna, and is equally skilled at communicating both the Bridegroom and the divine Consort to his audience.

But Jefferji's English heritage has finally caught him up, and he is forced to leave his childhood home. Both escape and duty send him into the wild high places of the great Pamir plateau, where not only danger and bloodshed await, but also a refugee Circassian warlord who pulls Jefferji into another, far stranger dance. Its transcendent power will carry Jefferji closer to a fiercer god than he could have dreamed possible--if he manages to survive its passion.

About the Author

Zarabeth Abbey has been reading widely in the ethnography of some of the religious systems of the world for a long long time, starting with her first exposure to Frazer's The Golden Bough when she was in high school (a long, long time ago). Her interest in the history and religion the high Pamir, Central Asia, and westernmost China date from living in India when she was a girl (even longer ago than reference paragraph one, above).

Her mother, a scholar of the Old and New Testaments, provided Zarabeth with her first framework for the varieties of religious experience, and in her family a streak of mystical communion with the Divine ("plugging directly into the power source") was a respected, if not universal, experience.

This is her first historical adventure novel.
