Gunpowder God

(The sixth book in the Lord Kalvan of Otherwhen series)
A novel by

Now that the siege of Thagnor City has been lifted, Great King Kalvan finally has some breathing room. Styphon's House has left the Upper Middle Kingdoms to lick its wounds and make trouble elsewhere in the Great Kingdoms. However, instead of waiting for the ruling houses to realize they no longer need Styphon's House's support, the Temple has decided to put its own puppets on the thrones of the Five Great Kingdoms.

The result is Kalvan's greatest fear - an all-out religious war. Styphon's Own Voice has ordered Grand Master Soton to put together another huge army, the Host of Styphon's Deliverance, to conquer the Kingdom of Hos-Agrys. The Agrysi League of Dralm begs Kalvan for aid against Styphon's great host, but Kalvan has troubles of his own with Nythros, the last bastion of Styphon's House in the Middle Kingdoms. He is more worried about this threat than anything that is happening in the Five Great Kingdoms. After all, where was the League of Dralm when Hostigos was under siege? A decision Kalvan may yet come to rue... .

Meanwhile, Prince Phidestros has his own problems. Great King Lysandros is returning from the disastrous siege of Thagnor with his tail between his legs. But Lysandros is not going to be happy when he finds out what's been going on in Harphax City while he's been off fighting Kalvan - nor will Styphon's House.

Verkan Vall is enjoying the challenges of being the new King of Greffa, but in his absence things on First Level have gone straight to hell. New Paratime Police Chief Dalla Hadron is having the devil's own time keeping the lid on the prole situation and it seems as though trouble is brewing all over Dhergabar City. After ten thousand years of peace and parasitically living off of other time-lines, the hounds of war are finally returning to Home Time Line with a vengeance!
