Mistress of Mistresses

Mistress of Mistresses (Zimiamvia #1) - E. R. Eddison 6.00   1

MISTRESS OF MISTRESSES was the first published novel in E. R. Eddison's celebrated Zimiamvian trilogy. Like Tolkien's Middle-Earth, Zimiamvia is a world which mirrors our own - but passions run stronger there, and life, love and treachery are epic in their intensity. And magic, of course, is a reality.

Mezentius had ruled the Three Kingdoms with a firm hand, but his legitimate heir is a weakling, frightened of the power of his half-brother, Duke Barganax, and of that of the terrifying Horius Parry, Vicar of Rerek. As Parry and Barganax manoeuvre, intrigue and plot, it is clear that the new king isn't long for the world.

The key to the control of the Three Kingdoms lies with Lessingham, Parry's cousin, the only man both sides can trust. But then Parry decides that Lessingham must die. As heroes and villains clash, an even darker game is being played – for the Lady Fiorinda is testing her own powers to decide the fates of men...

MISTRESS OF MISTRESSES is as powerful, exciting and intriguing today as when it was first published.
