The Raven and the Rose
by G C Cooper
The Earth's not what it seems, nor what it was. Pangu has fallen. Only the guardians of the Great Library of the Arts remain. The Queen of Diyu let them stand because she knew the Library's secret, strong enough to reform all knowns and forge all unknowns, would destroy her. Only the Raven can tame its terror, but now they have found her, hidden in the beginning, before the Sixth Great Die-Off.
