The Gypsy: Steven Brust and Megan Lindholm

Random and Little Known Fact: Megan Lindholm is Robin Hobb's actual name.

Using the ways of these traveling people, three brothers have gone their separate ways to both see and tell the world in a way that others can't fathom. They have three different ways of walking and names or titles to go with each. As you wander the Romano Drom, the world seems to change in a way that makes art have more meaning and gives music special power.

A rare and seamless collaboration that took place by the simple exchange of a manuscript every time there was a bend in the road fostered a forward flowing style that follows true gypsy tradition- never retrace your steps and keep weaving the thread of the story.

Wandering into and out of time, Csucskari becomes entangled in a modern day murder investigation- but for one with his feet on the gypsy road, it's impossible to stay for too long and this event simply becomes another point in the otherworldly narrative of his life as he pursues the devil- or perhaps she pursues him.

As the dance increases in heat and urgency, his brothers start to sense the problem, but love pulls the youngest in both directions. Will he sacrifice his existence again? Or move fully into the modern world and take a settled life of his own?

The Gypsy moves you. You won't be able to resist.
