Child of an Ancient City

by Tad Williams, Nina Kiriki Hoffman
Release date: 1992
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, young adult

Illustrated by Greg Hildebrandt.

The caravan met disaster in the mountains: Bandits fell upon them by night, scattering their horses, looting and pillaging their cargo. When the survivors gathered together, they salvaged what they could and began the long trek home.

For Susri, the merchant's son, the journey home becomes a nightmare as people around him begin to disappear at night. Masrur and Ibn Fahad, the men in charge of the expedition, blame a vampyr, a creature that preys on the living and shuns the light of day. Susri, nicknamed Fawn, knows it must be true.

Tad Williams, best-selling author of Tailchaser's Song and The Dragonbone Chair, returns to epic fantasy with an Arabian Nights vampire story, written in collaboration with acclaimed new fantasist Nina Kiriki Hoffman.
