After Lord Aaron Marlo receives a disturbing letter from his brother notifying him that the city of Timora has been decimated by assassins, he realizes that times have changed. The Great Alliance, which has kept a measured peace for more than two millennia, is dying. The East is rising, every allegiance will be tested, and unfortunately this strife is just the beginning. Eighteen years earlier, Aaron and Eve unite in a marriage of convenience brought about by two great houses-the House of Marlo and the House of Langdon. All seems well at first-until the joy and vitality of their relationship suddenly begins to fade. Tensions grow, and they eventually part ways. As they spend the next twenty years pulled in separate directions by the divergent roles they play in life, and the tides of time, neither has any idea that in mid-life, they will rediscover one another-just as their world undergoes upheaval and great historic change. In this epic saga of an ancient family dynasty, Aaron and Eve soon discover they may have important roles to play in the outcome of their world, especially now as a rising tide of aggression and change threatens their future.

Coming into the Country is an unforgettable account of Alaska and Alaskans. It is a rich tapestry of vivid characters, observed landscapes, and descriptive narrative, in three principal segments that deal, respectively, with a total wilderness, with urban Alaska, and with life in the remoteness of the bush. Readers of McPhee's earlier books will not be unprepared for his surprising shifts of scene and ordering of events, brilliantly combined into an organic whole. In the course of this volume we are made acquainted with the lore and techniques of placer mining, the habits and legends of the barren-ground grizzly, the outlook of a young Athapaskan chief, and tales of the fortitude of settlers—ordinary people compelled by extraordinary dreams. Coming into the Country unites a vast region of America with one of America's notable literary craftsmen, singularly qualified to do justice to the scale and grandeur of the design.

On the island of Kekon, the Kaul family is locked in a violent feud for control of the capital city and the supply of magical jade that endows trained Green Bone warriors with supernatural powers they alone have possessed for hundreds of years. Beyond Kekon's borders, war is brewing. Powerful foreign governments and mercenary criminal kingpins alike turn their eyes on the island nation. Jade, Kekon's most prized resource, could make them rich - or give them the edge they'd need to topple their rivals. Faced with threats on all sides, the Kaul family is forced to form new and dangerous alliances, confront enemies in the darkest streets and the tallest office towers, and put honor aside in order to do whatever it takes to ensure their own survival - and that of all the Green Bones of Kekon. Jade War is the second book of the Green Bone Saga, an epic trilogy about family, honour and those who live and die by the ancient laws of blood and jade.
