When aristocrat Jordan Parish's pregnant wife disappears, everyone assumes the motive is ransom.
But six months pass without a clue--until the FBI discovers a family heirloom worn by Melanie with Jordan's blood on it.
As suspicion falls on the temperamental and volatile Jordan, he mounts his own desperate investigation. What he discovers about their families' past plunges him into a world of mystery. And when he pursues strange assailants into a mysterious storm, he is cast into a realm where he finds his child at the center of a power struggle--and the culmination of an ancient prophecy.
The Winds of Heaven and Earth launches a new fantasy trilogy, blending epic and contemporary genres in the tradition of Stephen R. Donaldson's Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever and Roger Zelazny's Chronicles of Amber
