In the winter palace, the King's new physician has more enemies
than she at first realises. But then she also has more remedies to
hand than those who wish her ill can know about.
In another palace across the mountains, in the service of the
regicidal Protector General, the chief bodyguard, too, has his
enemies. But his enemies strike more swiftly, and his means of
combating them are more traditional.
Spiralling round a central core of secrecy, deceit, love and
betrayal, INVERSIONS is a spectacular work of science
fiction, brilliantly told and wildly imaginative, from an author
who has set genre fiction alight.
