Fourth in Barker's series of novels set in his marvelously detailed Tekumel world, originally described in his Empire of the Petal Throne Game. I feel Barker was a better world builder than he was a novelist, but the series is worth it for exploring the world. This story involves a party from his usually central Tsolyani empire venturing out to other nations, and encountering among other things a really nasty plague. Not my favorite of the books - Igot this basically to have it for the series. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0972588019, Paperback)

Travel across the Planes Beyond to the world of Tékumel, where things are not always as they appear and a simple mission can turn deadly. Korrúkka is part of a Tsolyáni political mission to find a peaceful solution to the war between the Livyáni and the people of the isolated Tsoléi Archipelago. After seeing the wonders and secrets of Holís Isle, the talks break down and the Tsolyáni delegation becomes mysteriously ill. Left to die from the fearsome Plague of the White Hand, the mission appears destined for an untimely end. Waking up on the shores of Livyánu, the remnants of the delegation must find a way to stop the spread of this deadly plague before it spreads and destroys all of civilization.
