Kencyrath Synopses: Dark of the Moon is the second Kencyrath novel by P.C. Hodgell. Jame and her friend Marc journey over the mountains to find Jame’s twin brother Tori, but they must face great perils, including planet-threatening enemies.

Seeker’s Mask is the third book in P.C. Hodgell’s Kencyrath series. Jame has found and been reunited with her twin brother Tori. Now all she has to do is find a place for herself among the Kencyrs that are following her brother. This is not quite as easy as it sounds. For, if you remember, Jame has not grown up in the normal Kencyr lifestyle. When she is placed in the Women’s Halls and is expected to change and become a normal quiet Kencyr lady, it is the Women’s Halls that undergo the changes. For when you have Shadow Guild Assassins, ghosts, strange beings, and other characters from your past after you, it is rather difficult not to want a weapon, instead of a sewing needle, in your hand. Soon Jame and Jorin, her blind ounce, are on the run again, trying to stay one step ahead of the danger.
