Mistress of Mistresses Summary

Mistress of Mistresses by E. R. Eddison

MISTRESS OF MISTRESSES was the first published novel in E.R. Eddison's celebrated Zimiamvian trilogy. Like Tolkien's Middle-Earth, Zimiamvia is a world which mirrors our own - but passions run stronger there, and life, love and treachery are epic in their intensity. And magic, of course, is a reality. Mezentius had ruled the Three Kingdoms with a firm hand, but his legitimate heir is a weakling, frightened of the power of his half-brother, Duke Barganax, and of that of the terrifying Horius Parry, Vicar of Rerek. As Parry and Barganax manoeuvre, intrigue and plot, it is clear that the new king isn't long for the world. The key to the control of the Three Kingdoms lies with Lessingham, Parry's cousin, the only man both sides can trust. But then Parry decides that Lessingham must die. As heroes and villains clash, an even darker game is being played - for the Lady Fiorinda is testing her own powers to decide the fates of men...MISTRESS OF MISTRESSES is as powerful, exciting and intriguing today as when it was first published.

About E. R. Eddison

SALES POINTS * Part of the Fantasy Masterworks series * 'This writer describes men who are beautiful, and powerful, and violent - even his varlets are tremendous. Here, in so far as they can be conjured into modern speech, are the heroes. Their valour and lust is endless as is that of tigers; and, like these, they take life or death with a purr or a snarl' James Stephens * 'Suffused with a joyful erotic glow..every re-reading of E.R. Eddison is a rediscovery' The Encyclopedia of Fantasy; * E.R. Eddison ranks alongside Tolkien and Lord Dunsany as one of the great British fantasy writers of the twentieth century
