Description
The continuing adventures of Christopher Sinclair, mechanical engineer turned priest of war.
Christopher, raised from the dead and promoted to a moderate rank, takes command of the army regiment he trained and equipped. Sent south to an allegedly easy posting, he finds himself in the way of several thousand rabid dog-men. Guns and fortifications turn back the horde, but Christopher has other problems that cannot be solved with mere firepower: a wicked assassin; hostile clergymen; dubious allies including a bard, Lalania, with a connection to a mysterious group of scholars; and worst of all his own impolitic tongue. But all of these pale into mere distractions once he discovers the true enemy: an invisible, mind-eating horror who plays the kingdom like a puppet-master's stage. Lalania claims she can help—but will it be enough?

      • bioText: M.C. Planck is the author of Sword of the Bright Lady (World of Prime: Book 1) and The Kassa Gambit. After a nearly-transient childhood, he hitchhiked across the country and ran out of money in Arizona. So he stayed there for thirty years, raising dogs, getting a degree in philosophy, and founding a scientific instrument company. Having read virtually everything by the old Masters of SF&F, he decided he was ready to write. A decade later, with a little help from the Critters online critique group, he was actually ready. He was relieved to find that writing novels is easier than writing software, as a single punctuation error won't cause your audience to explode and die. When he ran out of dogs, he moved to Australia to raise his daughter with kangaroos.

        The second book of Planck’s World of Prime series (after Sword of the Bright Lady) is a new (and less slyly clever) take on A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court and finds fish out of water Christopher gaining influence—and enemies—in a medieval world where magic literally costs lives. Death and magical regeneration have given Christopher “allies, an army, and bags of money” as well as a higher magical rank, just what he needs to help fulfill the bargain he cut with war god Marcius in the series opener. Christopher wants to give the world “a good shaking up,” threatening the magic-wielding nobility by giving commoners guns, Franklin stoves, and any other improvement he can recreate in the medieval setting. Hoping to keep this charismatic troublemaker at arm’s length—and far from the local peasantry—King Treywan sends Christopher’s regiment to a remote border town in the south to fight monsters and win over the locals. Planck’s lively characters and solid worldbuilding keep the story moving. Agent: Kristin Nelson, Nelson Literary Agency.
