Chimera, Book Two
About the book
The epic conclusion of the eight-volume Other Earth series, which includes the Halcyon, Europa, and Chimera series:
The dragon-possessed healer Asha of Kathmandu joins forces with the fox witch Wren, the airship engineer Taziri, and the immortal knight Gideon to save the living gods of Alexandria from an ancient evil. The immortal Lilith has come to the city to terrorize its people, and to twist them into hideous, monstrous slaves to serve her dark designs.
Many heroes have gathered to defeat her, but the one person who knows all the secrets of this place is stolen away. Asha’s new ally Anubis has a dark agenda of his own. And if Asha cannot control her own grief and rage at the evils she has seen, the dragon’s soul that dwells within her may consume her utterly, transforming her into the most devastating monster of all.
Inhuman creatures rampage across Alexandria, and battles rage from the city streets to the night skies, and from the great lighthouse down into the vast necropolis hidden beneath the earth. But this is a battle that cannot be won with weapons, no matter how otherworldly, if Asha is to also save her own sanity and bring peace to the city of the gods.
Series: The City of the Gods is a part of The Other Earth series. This story takes place immediately after Chimera #1 and Europa #3.

The Other Earth series
This is a work of historical fantasy. Some of this world may seem familiar to you. But in this world, Europe never emerged from the last Ice Age and only the southern areas are habitable. North Africa is cool, wet, and fertile. The Himalayan Mountains are a shield wall against the northern glaciers. Ancient nations such as the Persian Empire have persisted, though others, such as the Romans, never rose to power. Some of the countries in this world reflect the cultures and attitudes of the Renaissance while others reflect the Industrial Age. Historical figures from our world appear, though they too may be strange to you.
Don’t expect this world to conform to the history that you know. The people and places are different. The climate and wildlife are different.
Even death is different here.
