9780060882143: The Serpent Bride: DarkGlass Mountain: Book One (DarkGlass Mountain Series)

Rescued from unspeakable horror, Ishbel Brunelle has devoted her life to the Order of the Coil, a sacred cult that reads the future in the entrails of its human sacrifices. But the Serpent has loftier plans for the archpriestess, and an eerie, eldritch warning: Prepare for the Lord of Elcho Falling . . .

Perils abound in a realm beset by treachery, and above all looms the DarkGlass Mountain—once known as the Threshold—as the terrible Dark God Kanubai prepares to emerge from his prison in exile.

About the Author:

Sara Douglass was born in Adelaide but moved to Hobart in later life to write full-time. Three of her books won the Aurealis Award for Best Fantasy and many were shortlisted. She published nineteen books of epic and historical fantasy before her death in 2011.

From Publishers Weekly:

Set in a world evocative of ancient Egypt, the dark, sensuous first in a new fantasy series from Australian author Douglass picks up five years after the events in 2006's Crusader, the conclusion to her Wayfarer Redemption series. Lady Ishbel Brunelle, an archpriestess of the Order of the Coil (whose members use the bowels of living men to foretell the future), is ordered by the order's Great Serpent, who appears as a speaking apparition, to marry Maximilian Persimius, king of the coastal kingdom of Escator. Despite a terrifying childhood vision that warned her of such an eventuality, she agrees and quickly becomes pregnant. Meanwhile, Kanubai, an evil godlike being, stirs beneath the Darkglass Mountain, a four-sided pyramid in the land of Isembaard ruled by the tyrant Isaiah. Kanubai convinces Isaiah's insane brother to deliver a sacrifice and an ancient artifact that will free him from the mountain. Most of the characters are drowning in emotional quagmires, which hopefully future installments will dispel. (May)
