In CHILDREN OF EARTH AND SKY, Guy Gavriel Kay evokes a world inspired by the conflicts and dramas of Renaissance Europe. Against this tumultuous backdrop, the lives of men and women unfold on the borderlands --- where empires and faiths collide. A woman with dreams of vengeance, a wealthy merchant’s son, a young artist, a spy posing as a doctor’s wife, and a boy seeking to rise in the ranks of the army. As their lives entwine, their fates --- and those of many others --- will hang in the balance, when a khalif from the east sends out his massive army to take the great fortress that is the gateway to the western world.

In UNDER HEAVEN, Guy Gavriel Kay told a vivid and powerful story inspired by China’s Tang Dynasty. Now, the international bestselling author revisits that invented setting four centuries later with an epic of prideful emperors, battling courtiers, bandits and soldiers, nomadic invasions, and a woman battling in her own way to find a new place for women in the world --- a world inspired this time by the glittering, decadent Song Dynasty.
