I am the Power of Obsidian, the Essence of Obsidian, the voice boomed at him. "I am the Omniscient All-seeing Eye of the Obsidian Orb. " "Am I inside the Obsidian Orb?" Peter dared to ask. "Oh indeed not," the Power of Obsidian replied. ... "You are within the Essence of Obsidian or, if you prefer it, inside the Book of Obsidian the most powerful book ever written about the most potent source of magic the world has ever known." "Yes, I know," Peter said. "But why can't I learn from the Book of Obsidian the same way that I learn from other books? Why do you have to--well ...swallow me? Sujad Cariotis has stolen the refashioned Obsidian Orb and made himself Lord of Obsidian--a very powerful enemy who is yet only a servant to the real Enemy. But, unknown to Sujad, Peter has made an unusual secret friend to help the Earthlight in its continuing fight against the evil that threatens to swamp the planet.

The inscription was so large that Peter was able to make it out from a fair distance. ... The words seemed to give off their own light. In a whisper, which echoed in strange sibilants around him, he read: Commanders of Light and Darkness waged war within the womb. Corruption and vicious treachery then led one on to doom. But in the Great Halls of Draining Light, in a fortifying bower, The Sleepers weave dreams while invoking the revival of their power. The friend of the One through willow shower With silver concord protects his power. But the Commander of Darkness with vicious might By false claims of kinship asserts unjust right. When the Essence of Obsidian tries to explain this prophecy to Peter by describing the word "womb" as a poetic euphemism for the beginning, Peter's final quest for Earthlight only becomes more difficult and confusing. And in the meantime, his and the Earthlight's enemies continue to grow in both numbers and power--until Peter discovers the dreadful truth and in his mind-numbing horror seems to be about to lose the final battle.

Departing from the political economy perspective taken by the vast majority of volumes devoted to Mesoamerican obsidian, Obsidian Reflections is an examination of obsidian's sociocultural dimensions—particularly in regard to Mesoamerican world view, religion, and belief systems. Exploring the materiality of this volcanic glass rather than only its functionality, this book considers the interplay among people, obsidian, and meaning and how these relationships shaped patterns of procurement, exchange, and use. An international group of scholars hailing from Belize, France, Japan, Mexico, and the United States provides a variety of case studies from Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, and Honduras. The authors draw on archaeological, iconographic, ethnographic, and ethnohistoric data to examine obsidian as a touchstone for cultural meaning, including references to sacrificial precepts, powerful deities, landscape, warfare, social relations, and fertility. Obsidian Reflections underscores the necessity of understanding obsidian from within its cultural context—the perspective of the indigenous people of Mesoamerica. It will be of great interest to Mesoamericanists as well as students and scholars of lithic studies and material culture.

Shade Nox is the only witch in a land of wizards – a fiend, a rogue, a wanted criminal. Defying those who think her an abomination, Shade wears her tattoos openly and carries obsidian blades at her hips. For years, she has protected the outcast clans who wander the blighted Wastes, but the land is growing more unstable and her blades are no longer enough. To save her people, Shade vows to raise a Veil of protection – a feat not accomplished in over a hundred years. But the magical Veils are said to belong to the Brotherhood church; if she succeeds in raising one, it will expose their lies. They swear to see her obliterated first. Treading a dangerous path where allies can be as deceitful as enemies, and where demons lurk in the shadows, Shade chases a vision which could lead to her people’s salvation… or her own destruction.
