Tor 5425 THE CRYSTAL EMPIRE nf
The Crystal Empire
By L. Neil Smith
Cover by Michael Whelan
The plague wiped out all of Europe in the Middle ages, and now the world is ruled by three great empires:
The Saracen-Jewish Empire led by the enlightened Caliph of Rome, domianting Europe and part of Asia
The Mughal-Arab Empire to the east, bent on destroying its neighbor by any means necessary
The Sino-Aztec Crystal Empire, on the western shore of America, seat of the most powerful and unknown force on Earth.
The latter empire dwarfed the others in technical sophistication and the
dominion it exerted over its subjects. All the Earth was in awe of the
might of the Crystal Empire and its ruler, the living Sun-god.
All the Earth except Sedrich Sedrichson. Charged with bringing to the
Emperor his future bride, the beautiful and far-seeing Ayesha, daughter
of the Caliph, Sedrich was a heretic, an outcast, and a legendary
fighter. His past lay in ruins, littered with the tragic deaths of those
he loved most dearly. Now he had a chance for happiness --- and
First paperback printing, 1989. Clean, solid copy, with light edge
wear. Faint crinkles in spine (it's a THICK book). No other defects.
