The Witness for the Dead
When the young half-goblin emperor Maia sought to learn who had set the bombs that killed his father and half-brothers, he turned to an obscure resident of his Court, a Prelate of Ulis and a Witness for the Dead.
Thara Celehar found the truth, though it did him no good to discover it. Now he lives in the City of Amalo, far from the Court though not exactly in exile. He has not escaped from politics, but his position gives him the ability to serve the common people of the city, which is his preference.
He lives modestly, but his decency and fundamental honestly will not permit him to live quietly.

Quite simply, I loved it." -- John Scalzi "The Angel of the Crows is an entertaining ride - a compelling fantasy mystery set in an alternate but startlingly familiar Victorian London. You've been here before-not." -- Tim Powers "I liked it. It's a fantasy, a novel of court intrigue. Those of you who like that aspect of my own work will probably like
The Goblin Emperor as well." -- George R. R. Martin, Not a Blog "The Witness for the Dead is a pure delight to revel in." -- Aurealis * Aurealis *
