About this title

Synopsis:

When a Rankan messenger is killed in Tyse, Randal, the Stepsons’ pet wizard, must read the dead man’s mind. What Randal learns brings Niko back from the Misty Isles of Bandara and forces Tempus and his Stepsons into an alliance unholy even by Tysian standards – with Cime the mage killer; Aškelon, lord of dreams; and the Rankan Third Commando, a fighting unit so cruel it gives even the Stepsons pause. Together with Tempus’ long-lost daughter, and his elemental lover, Jihan, they must venture beyond accursed Wizardwall itself to battle the Mygdonian Alliance and Roxane’s Nisibisi witchcraft. The intrepid Band (whose central core is Tempus’ beloved Stepsons) must figure out who among the Tysian locals, Rankan soldiers, and Mygdonian defectors they can trust – before it’s too late. But in a world where a witch can turn a warrior into a flea, where gemstone frogs can rain from the sky, where no one is ever what he seems, where loyalties are ensured by curses, wizardry, and the favor of warring gods... only the immortal Tempus can guarantee an army’s success. And not even Tempus can tell the good guys from the bad in Tyse, where everyone plays both ends against the middle – or if the price of victory against Mygdonia will be his Stepsons’ souls in their battle BEYOND THE VEIL, sequel to BEYOND SANCTUARY. Here is the second independent full-length novel in Janet Morris’ BEYOND series, far from notorious Thieves’ World™. Set in Tyse, a town so mean and magic-ridden as to make Sanctuary™ seem like a singles bar, BEYOND THE VEIL features Tempus – Thieves’ World most popular and misunderstood character – and introduces Kama, his warrior daughter, as well as Ranke’s deservedly infamous shock troops, the Third Commando.

From the Back Cover:

Tempus is a hero with a curse: any he loves will spurn him, and any who love him soon die of it. His curse grants him immortality, the gift of healing, and great prowess on the battlefield, but denies him sleep and love -- a curse so dreadful that even the southern storm god he once served has turned against him. But god or no god, Tempus and his Stepsons, with help from his sorcerer-slaying sister, Cime, and Jihan the Froth Daughter, must face Datan, the archmage of Black Nisibis, and  Roxane, the Death's Queen, along with their unholy followers in a battle for civilization and Tempus' soul.War is coming to Tyse, an occupied town at the foot of Wizardwall that hosts refugees, insurgents, murderers, thieves, and wizards whose allegiance shifts with the wind. Arriving here is the Sacred Band commanded by Tempus, called the favorite of the storm god, the Riddler, Tempus  the Black, and worse by his enemies. Tempus longs to align his cavalry with the Nisibisi freemen on Wizardwall's slopes, fighting to regain their homeland against the allied sorcerers of Black Nisibis and the evil Mygdonian empire, intent on conquering all who stand in their way.Here is the newly revised Author's Cut edition of BEYOND THE VEIL, the third full-length novel to take you BEYOND the notorious Thieves World fantasy universe, where gods still stalk the land, warring with demons and human sorcerers and trampling unfortunate humanity underfoot. BEYOND THE VEIL follows BEYOND SANCTUARY and precedes BEYOND WIZARDWALL in Janet Morris's legendary Sacred Band series.
