    Hari soon uncovers a dastardly conspiracy perpetrated by the ruling elite of Earth. The plan is commit genocide via a virus that will eradicate the Overworld populace. Hari enlists the aid of his wife and other souls to try to save the lives of the people of Overworld.

   BLADE OF TYSHALLE is an exciting work of speculative fiction that combines elements of science fiction and fantasy into the plot. The story line is filled to overkill with detailed martial arts fighting that slows down an otherwise astute novel. Hari is an epic hero and his teammates augment the understanding of his need to protect the Overworld. Don't eat reading this story, as some parts of the tale seem a bit too gory at least for this reviewer's stomach. Still, Matthew Woodring Stover has written a stalwart novel that will please readers who enjoy the crossroads between science fiction and fantasy.
