Now exclusively at Ebooks Direct: The TALE OF THE FIVE OMNIBUS



"Good strong stuff with the right light touch." —Terry Pratchett

"Expands the limits of the swords and sorcery genre. Exciting, magical, intelligent." —Publishers Weekly

"The series as a whole seems destined to become one of the best in the genre." —West Coast Review of Books


A sorcerous swordsmith searches desperately for the Power that will make him whole. A prince who fled his kingdom and the throne to which he was born now seeks the courage to return and defy those who want him dead. A warrior scarred by her painful past stakes her future on the strange new life that comes to share her mind. An outcast dragon abandoned by his kind to a solitary fate is drawn into the forbidden territory of the conflicts of humankind. And a fire elemental determined to find out about the peculiarities of being human discovers far more than it ever expected. Together they will cross the Middle Kingdoms in pursuit of the single goal that binds them... discovering the danger and promise of their intertwined destinies, and changing the world.

The Tale of the Five Omnibus contains the first three volumes of mature fantasy fiction set in Diane Duane's Middle Kingdoms universe: The Door Into Fire, The Door Into Shadow, and The Door Into Sunset. All three appear here in the author's preferred texts, newly updated and revised from their previous print editions.

The Omnibus is available only as a digital work, and only at Ebooks Direct, in the major ebook formats (Kindle, Nook, Kobo, Apple Books, and generic .epub, which works for just about all other e-readers and apps). (If you have questions about how to get the files into your e-reading hardware or software, please check our store's sideloading guide for more info.) Readers who prefer to purchase individual digital volumes of the series can do so here at Ebooks Direct (Fire | Shadow | Sunset), or by using the Amazon widgets below. (Please note that the paperback editions presently available from Amazon will be republished in matching covers and interior formats in early 2019.)

Reader advisory: All three volumes contain adult / mature themes and situations set in a sexually diverse and inclusive culture.
