"Antiphon" by Ken Scholes

What do mechoservitors, kin-wolves, kin ravens, Behemoth, the Marsh King, and gypsies have to do with each other? All are part of this third installment of "The Psalms of Isaak." Runners deliver messages and search the land with the use of magic and black root; Nebios is hunted and called "Abomination;" Jin Li Tam makes an unexpected journey with Jakob; and Winter and Ria discover the tenuous tie that binds them. All the while, mechoservitors hurry to meet together to save the Antiphon. Come read of the continuing journey "home" and of those who wish to thwart that journey. The twists and turns will keep you guessing all the way to the end. Here's hoping that the fourth installment will be out next year!

I was privileged to read "Antiphon" as part of Sneak Peek at Barnes & Noble. While I haven't read the first two installments, I was able to pick up on the plot. This is a book that is difficult to put down, and I recommend it to anyone who loves sci-fi/fantasy. I will be reading the first two books, then re-reading this one, to prepare for "Requiem" (hoping for it to come out in 2011).
