From the Inside Flap:

     JANET MORRIS   THIEVES WORLD         BEYOND      SANCTUARY
     
     Here is the brand-new, full-length novel from Thieves World, the fantasy universe created by such top authors as Robert Asprin, Lynn Abbey, C.J. Cherryh, Joe Haldeman and -- of course -- Janet Morris herself. If you like stories of brave bold knights employed in meritorious duty, or tales of ladies delicate and fair, be warned. Sanctuary -- the meanest, seediest town in all of fantasy -- may be too much for your sensibilities. There wizrads, bards and maidens mingle with murderers and thieves, and the fight breaking out at the next table may be the one that ends your life.     The hero of BEYOND SANCTUARY is Tempus, warrior-servant of the god of storm and war. But he is a hero cursed. Any woman that he loves must loathe him. And anyone, male or female, who loves him soon dies of it. Under such a curse his god's "gift," of immortality is one he would cast off -- if only he could.     In BEYOND SANCTUARY, Tempus and his Sacred Band go north to war against the deadliest demons and most malevolent mages conceivable. In this war there is no such thing as honorable defeat, or even honorable death in a losing cause. The winners will eat your soul, and you will love on in the Belly of the Beast.
