display_description Return to the "vivid and unusual" (Kirkus Reviews) world of Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle's The Burning City, where the fire god has retreated into myth, leaving the residents of Tep's Town unprotected for the first time in their history. Unfortunately, a fiery fate isn't the only danger Tep's Town is facing. Monsters are coming forth from the desert-great birds with blades instead of wings, driven by some unknown force. Although they can be killed, the threat these "terror birds" pose is worse than death. Danger on the roads means no trade; no trade means the extinction of Tep's Town. Sent to discover the source of the terror birds, Lord Sandry and his beloved, Burning Tower, must travel into a world where magic is still strong-and where someone or something waits to destroy them. Filled with the sweeping adventure, memorable characters, and imaginative world-building that have defined the novels of Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle, Burning Tower is another triumph.
