The Two Georges: A Novel of an Alternate America

By Harry Turtledove and Richard Dreyfuss

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A precious and historic painting has been stolen by terrorists - radical separatists who will stop at nothing to shatter the union. Colonel Thomas Bushell, the government's most fearless agent, is the only man who can stop them.

But this is not our world. For the stolen painting depicts a treaty of peace between George Washington and King George III - a treaty that has kept America under British rule for two centuries. And the terrorists, who call themselves the "Sons of Liberty", want America to be free...

As the war which consumes Dervelai drags on, Algarve's reserves become more and more stretched. King Mezentio undertakes war on many fronts, and his main armies become sucked in to the huge landmass of Unkerlant, their main enemy. As conquered races are inducted into the Algarvian army, their fighting edge softens, and swift victory becomes ever more necessary, leading to the sacrifice of more and more Kaunians to allow Algervian mages to create ever stronger blood sorcery. Meanwhile, the mad King Swemmel of Unkerlant orders the death of thousands of his own subjects in an attempt to match the magecraft of Algarve. But the most deadly magic of all is taking place on a small island, where the ultimate weapon is coming slowly to fruition.

Rulers of the Darkness

Harry Turtledove
Authors:
Harry Turtledove

In his previous 'Darkness' books - Into the Darkness, Darkness Descending, and Through the Darkness - bestselling author Harry Turtledove has been telling an epic tale of a world at war; a dark mirror of the terrible wars of our own twentieth century, set in a world where battles are fought with magic rather than technology. Imagine the drama and terror of the Second World War in such a place. The death, the destruction, the sheer scale of the horror is the same - but the bullets are beams of eldritch fire, the tanks are great horned and taloned beasts, and fighters and bombers are dragons raining fire upon their targets. This is the world of the Derlavaian continent, a world that is slowly but surely being conquered, mile after bloody mile, by the forces of the Algarvian Empire... forces whose most terrible battle magics are powered by the slaughter of innocent people. In this, the forth volume of the series, following on from Through the Darkness, the war for the future of Derlavai builds towards its crescendo as the mages of Kuusamo, aided by their former rivals from Lagoas, work desperately to create a newer form of magic. Magic of unprecedented destructive power. Magic that will change the course of the future.
