Sweet Success! Carol Berg

Compiled by Kathie Scrimgeour


Carol Berg has sold the audio rights to her mythical fantasy novel, Dust and Light (ISBN: 978-0451417244 - print copy, 464 pages, trade paperback, ebook, audio). The audio book will release in August 2014 by Audible.com (NAL/Roc Books for the print and ebook already available).



The Pureblood Registry accused Lucian de Remeni of “unseemly involvement with ordinaries,” which meant only that he spoke with a young woman not of his own kind, allowed her to see his face unmasked, worked a bit of magic for her. Now the Registry has contracted his art to a common coroner. His extraordinary gift for portraiture is restricted to dead beggars or starvelings hauled from the streets. But sketching the truth of dead men’s souls brings unforeseen consequences. Sensations not his own. Truths he cannot possibly know. The coroner calls him a cheat. The Registry will call him mad—and mad sorcerers are very dangerous....
