Millennia ago, the goddess Persuasion was imprisoned for defying the heavens. Now, with the help of an old ally, she hopes to break free. Fresh from the events of The Eighth Born, wielder Rhyen of Avernade and his friends flee the nation of Conden, now under the control of Taida, a powerful wielder whose attempt to free Persuasion shattered the powerful Pankara Stone. To defeat Taida, Rhyen needs to reconstruct the Pankara Stone. It's a risky move-to free Persuasion, Taida also needs the Stone restored. As Rhyen and his companions seek out shards in the depths of the earth and the Elemental Kingdom of Death, the young sorcerer struggles to master his Opposite, the madness that lies within every wielder. He also finds himself drawing closer to Caliena, the young farm girl who chose to accompany him into danger. Acting on his feelings is impossible. Wielders live far longer than ordinary humans, but Rhyen still finds himself tempted. And ever present on the periphery of his awareness is the Dark Rider, a shadowy figure who has haunted Rhyen since childhood, and who prepares to teach the young wielder the meaning of loss.

Yet as Royce’s powers become stronger and as he learns there is a secret behind the mysterious lineage of his father, he comes to realize that his destiny may be greater than he thought. He begins to wonder at the most terrifying question of all: who is he? And will he save his love before it is too late? ONLY THE WORTHY weaves an epic tale of love and destiny, of tragedy and honor, of betrayal and heartbreak. It draws us into a fantasy world we will never forget, and appeals to all ages and genders.

A wonderful first novel which dramatically combines the suspense of a gripping literary thriller with a meditation on the nature of scientific chaos Roz Benegal, a feisty young BBC researcher, goes to India to pick up the threads of her life there (she spent part of her childhood growing up in Kerala). She goes to Bombay to visit her sister Miranda, who is married to a prominent Bollywood film director, Prosper. Roz arrives to news headlines announcing the deaths of 8 eunuchs in four months and to rumours that her sister's husband may have murdered his first wife Maya, a film star past her prime. Not satisfied to leave the investigations of these allegations to the Indian police, Roz Benegal begins a dangerous search for the truth. Interwoven with this utterly gripping detective story is a remarkable layering of knowledge gleaned from old books on storms, the monsoon, poisons and magical transformations, the narrator's fascination with chaos theory and her passionate interest in fate.
