About this title


Whether you are meeting the Kencyr Jame for the first time or reawakening an old friendship, Dark of the Gods is the place to start. Dark of the Gods is an omnibus collection of P. C. Hodgell's first two books God Stalk and Dark of the Moon, along with her short story "Bones", which takes place between the two novels. Jame is a Kencyrath, the chosen people of the Three-Faced God, who fights the demonic entity called Perimal Darkling. At the same time she fights an internal battle for her honor, because three thousand years ago the leader of the Kencyrath betrayed his people to the Darkness for his own immortality. She also must find her ten year older twin brother Tori and return to him the sword and ring of their father. If that is not enough, she has to kill a god, resurrect a god, stand before the rathorns, wear the cloak of living snakes, and visit a council room ablaze with stained glass.


God Stalk and Dark of the Moon are the first two books in P.C. Hodgell's acclaimed series about the noblewoman/thief Jame the Talisman. These classic novels of high fantasy have been out of print and hard to find since they appeared in the early 1980s. Now, Meisha Merlin has reprinted them in the omnibus volume Dark of the Gods, which also includes the short story "Bones."

Jame is one of the Kencyrath, a race of magically gifted mortals bound to the Three-Faced God in the millennia-old struggle with the evil and immensely powerful being known as Perimal Darkling. God Stalk tells how the child Jame wakes to find herself a young woman wandering in the Haunted Lands, badly wounded and pursued by the undead, and how she becomes involved with thieves, rulers, inn-keepers, and divine powers in the gods-haunted city of Tai-tastigon.

The second novel, Dark of the Moon, finds Jame leaving Tai-tastigon in the company of her blind, mind-linked cub, Jorin, and the giant Kencyr warrior Marcarn. They seek Jame's twin brother Torisen, who instead of being a 10-year-old boy, is older than Jame, and the Highlord of the Kencyrath. Torisen is far away in the Riverland, where he is unpopular with his nobles, and embroiled in deadly serious intrigues that will soon reach out to enmesh his unsuspecting and politically naive sister.

Jame's adventure continues in the sequel to Dark of the Gods, Seeker's Mask. --Cynthia Ward
