Book Description Unwin Hyman. Paperback. Book Condition: New. UNUSED, VERY GOOD, NOT EX-LIBRARY, 1st Edition Paperback, 192 pages. In the Royal Palace of conquered Luscany. Princess Nette chafes at the bonds that confine her to a life of empty ceremony. Meanwhile, in a less salubrious quarter. Serin Cuille's father scents success in his search for the secret of immortality. Then a gypsy blade flashes at the ice fair. An imperial emissary lies bleeding by the frozen river, and the uneasy peace is shattered. The Kschalan overlords will not rest until they have revenge. Serin saw it happen, saw the blow fall. Now she can never go home. Colin Greenland's The Hour of the Thin Ox was praised by The Guardian as being both lush and compressed, like a happy-ending Heart of Darkness. Other Voices takes us out of the jungle up into the mountains, and the no-man's land between the living and the dead. book. Bookseller Inventory # 669
