The Secret Books of Paradys
By

Rating
The city of Paradys was a place of decadence and decay, of luxury and lasciviousness and, after the revolution, a graveyard peopled by the insane and the dead...and by those who preyed on both. The strange and the tormented prowled its dark streets and twisted alleyways, passing the endless hours in the city's elegant mansions and smoke-tarnished inns, wandering in mouldering graveyards and the stark surrounding countryside. For the land here was bound by a timeless, soul-chilling magic, and its power had cast a spell over all who had ever lived here. Those who came were forever touched by its dread magic. But the city was not one place but three, bound together by a labyrinth of ice, yet separated, perhaps by time, perhaps by some long-forgotten enchantment, into Paradise, Paradis, and Paradys - each cursed in an entirely different way.Witness the city of Pardys' life and history through the eyes of its provocative and perverse citizens - a darkly fascinating odyssey as only World Fantasy Award-winner Tanith Lee could imagine it.

Reviews

'Fatalistic explorations of a city so sinister it makes HP Lovecraft look suburban ... a high-quality mixing of eroticism, horror and aestheticism ... Superb' - Chicago Sun-Times. 'Gorgeous, intoxicating, appalling ... Paradys brings to mind M John Harrison's Viriconium and Lawrence Durrell's Alexandria' - Washington Post.
