About the Author: Pauline J. Alama

My quest fantasy The Eye of Night was a finalist for the Compton Crook Award. I've published numerous short stories in anthologies such as Sword & Sorceress 30, It's Come to Our Attention, Witch High, Trafficking in Magic: Magicking in Traffic and magazines such as and Fantasy Scroll.

For a wild, misguided time in my life, I thought I would be an English professor, so I spent some time in Rochester, New York learning medieval literature and how to get around in heaps of snow. After getting a Ph.D. without a J.O.B., I returned to my native New Jersey, where I write grant proposals for nonprofit agencies and obey the whims of my feline overlords.

Other interests include playing guitar and saving the world. Not doing too well on either one, as yet. Must practice more.

From Pauline J. Alama comes a stirring fantasy tale of three vagabonds in a dying world and their terrifying quest into the heart of darkness...

The Eye Of Night

It is a magical world on the verge of collapse. In the North the Troubles rage. Cities and kings are being annihilated; the very earth is in upheaval, waking even the dead from their graves. All notions of time and space, of day and night, of seasonal change seem fractured beyond repair. But as the chaos moves slowly south, engulfing land after land, three unlikely heroes--an ex-priest, a battered serving girl, and an exquisitely beautiful, refined lady--journey bravely to the dying regions, their only weapon an enchanted stone of enigmatic power and ancient origin.

Jereth, disillusioned with his faith in the Rising God and robbed of his family after a deadly shipwreck, struggles to find meaning in his blighted life, searching the devastated land without direction--until he meets two extraordinary women. Each has her own secrets to keep; both are on a quest to save the world. But they must first save themselves, conquering their demons and rousing their well-disguised strengths. Only then will it be revealed how three penniless, unarmed wanderers can light a darkening world. For one is a prophet, one is a fool, and one’s life is now in their hands.
