Dream of the Dragon Pool A Daoist Quest is a multifaceted novel woven around the historical fact of the death-sentence exile of Chinas best loved poet-adventurer, Li Bo (also Li Bai, 701-762 A.D.). This is an adventure story of magic, myth, and occult powers written as traditional Chinese-style heroic fiction.Forced by the emperors exile order, Li Bo travels up the great Yangtze River toward certain death in distant Burma/Myanmar. Yet Li, not so concerned by his imminent death, regards his trip as a quest for his lost sense of poetic inspiration. Along the way, he unwittingly befriends the emperors most powerful shamaness who is trying to escape from the palace to Mount Wu and serve the mythical Rain Goddess, mistress of that sacred mountain. Li Bo accidentally awakens the dark forces of the Blood Dragon and its ghostly slaves. They are in pursuit of a magical sword, the legendary Dragon Pool Sword that Li Bo finds himself in possession of after a dream visit from a Daoist Immortal. The cast is rounded out by Lis traveling companion, a wandering blade veteran of the Tang dynastys Central Asian conquests, known as the Iron Talon; a mysterious swordsman-musician, who travels with a ghost-catching drunken monkey; a dream assassin, capable of killing people from within their dreams; and a blond, green-eyed, Central Asian female ghost, enslaved by the Blood Dragons powers. The characters, settings, and sensibilities are inspired by the romantic and flamboyant Tang dynasty tales of wonder and woven together by the author, a veteran medieval China scholar turned novelist.

This is the tale of Thomas Jadwin's dream of America. The story occurs during the last half of the reign of England's greatest monarch Elizabeth I and the first decades of her hand-picked successor James I. Thomas' father was a cutler of Welsh ancestry who supplied fine weapons for Nobility. Thomas courts and weds the beautiful and educated fishmonger's daughter, Catherine Pelham. As a wedding gift the Jadwins are given a tenement on the High Street near London Bridge within walking distance of the Bear Baiting Garden and the Globe Theatre. They convert the tenement into a tavern called Saracen's Head. Many of the luminaries of the day, including William Shakespeare, Squanto, and Captain John Smith, come to Saracen's Head to hear the news and raise a tankard of Southwark ale. Inspired by his father's membership in Raleigh's Adventurers for Virginia Thomas buys shares in the company formed to plant the first English colony in America. In this age of famine, plague, war, and the Reformation, Thomas comes to see America as the place where a reconstitution of human society might occur. He actually makes the journey across the Atlantic to the newly founded colony at Jamestown with the Third Supply on the ill-fated Sea Venture.

The Viking Age began over a thousand years ago when the ancient Norse perfected their ocean-going dragon-headed long ships. Young men, and later whole families, left Norway¿s rugged fjords in search of open land, trade, treasure, and more. Many others took to the unknown seas simply because something vague and irresistible beckoned them. They settled islands all across the North Atlantic and landed in North America over four hundred years before Columbus their exploits for ever remembered in the ancient Norse sagas. A Dream of Dragons is a beautifully illustrated modern Norse saga written with all the power of Melville and Hemingway and a true story now retold in the ageless rhythms of blank verse as irresistible as they are beautiful.

A realm at war. The star dragons struggle under the oppression of an unseen foe—a creature of terrible power, who seeks to shape all of space-time into a web of subjugation and death. The Dream Mountain, source of knowledge and life to the dragons, is held by the enemy; and yet, hope burns in the dragons’ hearts. According to ancient prophecy, One will come from outside to challenge the darkness. Star pilot Jael LeBrae may be that savior. Once before, she aided the dragons in their struggle, and now she must return to face at last the terrible wrath of Tar-skel. But if the prophecy holds true, the price of victory over the darkness will be Jael’s own life. Captivating sequel to Dragons in the Stars, Dragon Rigger is science fiction with mythic dimension, from the Nebula-nominated author of Eternity’s End and The Chaos Chronicles. REVIEWS: “Dragon Rigger is a most excellent adventure that would make a grand movie if it were not that the special effects budget would surely be quite brutal even in this age of computer animation.... If there is a motto for this novel, it is solidarnosc, solidarity, the power to be gained by sticking with one’s friends, even by sacrificing for the good of others...there is immense verve, energy, momentum, and power...the reader stays with Carver all the way.” —Thomas A. Easton, Analog “A refreshingly unique setting and excellently realized characters.” —Publishers Weekly

"Eine atemberaubende neue epische Fantasy-Serie. Morgan Rice hat es wieder einmal geschafft! Diese magische Saga erinnert an das Beste von J.K. Rowling, George R.R. Martin, Rick Riordan, Christopher Paolini und J.R.R. Tolkien. Ich konnte es nicht aus der Hand legen!" --Allegra Skye, Bestseller-Autor von SAVED FESTMAHL DER DRACHEN (Band 3 im Ring der Zauberei) entführt uns tiefer in Thors epische Reise auf dem Weg, ein Krieger zu werden, als er über die Feuersee reist, um die Insel der Nebel zu erreichen, die den Drachen gehört. An diesem gnadenlosen Ort, Heimat der höchsten Elite an Kriegern auf der Welt, werden Thors Kräfte und Fertigkeiten während seiner Ausbildung noch vertieft. Auch seine Freundschaften vertiefen sich, während sie zusammen Widrigkeiten trotzen, die weit über ihre Vorstellungskraft hinausgehen. Doch während sie sich unvorstellbaren Monstern gegenüber sehen, wandeln sich die Hundert schnell von einer Trainingsübung in eine Angelegenheit von Leben und Tod. Nicht alle werden überleben. Unterwegs werden Thors Träume, zusammen mit seinen rätselhaften Begegnungen mit Argon, ihn weiterhin plagen—ihn dazu drängen, mehr darüber zu erfahren, wer er ist; wer seine Mutter ist; und was die Quelle seiner Kräfte ist. Was ist sein Schicksal? Zuhause im Ring wird alles immer schlimmer. Während Kendrick eingekerkert wird, findet Gwendolyn sich damit betraut, ihn zu retten—den Ring zu retten, indem sie ihren Bruder Gareth stürtzt. Gemeinsam mit ihrem Bruder Godfrey jagt sie nach Hinweisen zum Mörder ihres Vaters, und unterwegs kommen sich die beiden viel näher, verbunden in ihrer Aufgabe. Doch Gwendolyn findet sich in tödlicher Gefahr wieder, als sie zu tief nachbohrt, und es kann sein, dass die Sache ihr über den Kopf wächst. Gareth versucht, das Schicksalsschwert zu ziehen, und erfährt, wie es ist, König zu sein, berauscht vom Missbrauch seiner Macht. Er regiert unbarmherzig und wird zunehmends paranoider. Während sich die Schlinge um den Mörder des Königs enger zieht, wagen sich die Angriffe der McClouds immer tiefer in den Ring vor, und Königshof gerät in eine immer heikler werdende Lage. Gwendolyn sehnt sich nach Thors Rückkehr; danach, mit ihm zusammen zu sein, damit ihre Liebe erblühen kann. Doch mit den mächtigen Kräften, die sich zwischen sie stellen, ist es fraglich, ob diese Chance je kommen wird. Wird Thor die Hundert überleben? Wird Königshof zusammenbrechen? Wird MacGils Mörder aufgespürt werden? Wird Gwendolyn mit Thor zusammenkommen? Und wird Thor endlich das Geheimnis seines Schicksals lüften? Mit seinen fein ausgearbeiteten Welten und Charakteren ist FESTMAHL DER DRACHEN eine epische Saga von Freundschaft und Liebe, von Rivalen und Verehrern, von Rittern und Drachen, von Intrigen und politischen Machenschaften, vom Erwachsenwerden, von gebrochenen Herzen, von Täuschung, Ehrgeiz und Verrat. Es ist eine Geschichte von Ehre und Mut, von Schicksal und Bestimmung, von Zauberei. Es ist eine Phantasiegeschichte, die uns in eine Welt entführt, die wir nie vergessen werden, und die Leser jeden Alters und Geschlechts begeistern wird. Sie umfasst an die 70.000 Wörter. Band 4-10 der Serie sind bereits auf Englisch erschienen und werden bald in deutscher Sprache erhältlich sein! „Packte meine Aufmerksamkeit von Anfang an und ließ nicht locker... diese Geschichte ist ein fantastisches Abenteuer, von Beginn an rasant und actionreich.
