In the final two volumes of the Paradys series, Tanith Lee completes this thrillingly dark and decadent alternate world, the imagined city of Paradys. In The Book of the Dead, the dark atmosphere is charged with hedonism, sexuality and death in eight interlocking short stories. In The Book of the Mad a seductive nightmare unfolds in three parallel versions of the city--Paradis, Paradys and Paradise. Connected by a labyrinth of ice whose dangers are amplified by the will and emotion of its lunatic travelers, these cities provide the stage for a drama of mythical proportions, setting up a darkly dazzling finish to The Secret Books of Paradys.
