9781841498157: The Bone Palace

Death is no stranger in the city of Erisín-- but some deaths attract more attention than others.

When a prostitute dies carrying a royal signet, Isyllt Iskaldur, necromancer and agent of the Crown, is called to investigate. Her search leads to desecrated tombs below the palace, and the lightless vaults of the vampiric vrykoloi deep beneath the city. But worse things than vampires are plotting in Erisín...

As a sorcerous plague sweeps the city and demons stalk the streets, Isyllt must decide who she's prepared to betray, before the city built on bones falls into blood and fire.

About the Author :

Amanda Downum was born in Virginia, and has since spent time in Indonesia, Micronesia, Missouri, and Arizona. In 1990 she was sucked into the gravity well of Texas, and has not yet escaped. She graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in English Literature, and has spent the last ten years working in a succession of libraries and bookstores; she is very fond of alphabetizing. She currently lives near Austin in a house with a spooky attic, which she shares with her long-suffering husband and fluctuating numbers of animals and half-finished novels. She spends her spare time making jewelry and falling off perfectly good rocks. To learn more about the author, visit www.amandadownum.com.

From Booklist :

*Starred Review* Several years have passed since the events chronicled in Drowning City (2009), the first volume in Downum’s Necromancer Chronicles. Issylt is now at home in Erisin and working as a King’s Investigator, though her necromancy skills mean she takes on the toughest cases—like finding the prostitute found dead clutching jewelry that was buried with the queen. Fortunately the king is on a campaign as he hasn’t been all too rational since the queen died three years past, leaving Issylt a few weeks to uncover the tomb raiders, solve the dead girl’s murder, and deal with the entrenched and complex aristocracy jockeying for power. As Issylt digs deep into the history of the palace, of several prominent families, and of the city itself, she uncovers matters everyone else would prefer she leave alone. Downum’s second fantasy is as sharp and complex as the first, full of fascinating characters, from the transvestite mistress of the prince to his warrior wife. As the setting and many of the characters are new to the series, Bone Palace works fine as a good starting point for new readers. Suggest to fans of the equally dark and imaginative Nights of Villjamur (2010). --Jessica Moyer
