Six rollicking swords and sorcery stories featuring the further adventures of Dabir and Asim from the author of THE DESERT OF SOULS and THE BONES OF THE OLD ONES.
Baghdad, AD 790: Caliph Harun al-Rashid presides over the greatest metropolis on Earth, ruler of an empire stretches from China to Byzantium. His exploits will be recorded in Alf Layla or, as we know it, The Book of One Thousand and One Nights. However, The Thousand and One Nights are silent on the deeds and adventures that befell two of the Caliph's subjects: the renowned scholar Dabir ibn Kahlil, and his shield and right hand, Asim el Abbas. For their story, we must turn to the Chronicle of Sand and Sword...
The Chronicle tells of necromancers and the walking dead, of djinn and demi-gods, of vengeful spirits and ancient magi and of the unbreakable bond of friendship between the two men who faced them all.
