Carnivores of Light and Darkness (Journeys of the Catechist, Book 1)
Warner/Aspect (reprint, paperback, 356 pages, $6.50/$8.50 Can)
Publication date: April 6, 1999 (First Edition: June 1998)

Foster -- the respected author of a great many SF and fantasy series, and one of the most prolific in the field at novelizations, including Alien and the early Star Wars volume Splinter of the Mind's Eye -- kicked off an ambitious fantasy series last year. The sequel, Into the Thinking Kingdoms (above), has just been released in hardcover. "Ehomba is a simple herdsman from an isolated tribe -- a "catechist" in search of answers. When a lone survivor of a shipwreck pleads for the safe return of the Visioness Themaryl, who had been kidnapped by an evil sorcerer, Ehomba sets forth on a journey through a world he has never seen to rescue a woman he has never met -- for the sake of a man he never knew."
