    Set in the world of Larry Niven’s popular The Magic Goes Away, The Burning City transports listeners to an enchanted and ancient city bearing a provocative resemblance to our own modern society. There, Yangin-Atep, the volatile and voracious god of fire, alternately protects and destroys the city’s denizens. In Tep’s Town, nothing can burn indoors, and no fire can start - except when the Burning comes upon the city. At that time the people, possessed by Yangin-Atep, set their own town ablaze in a riotous orgy of destruction that often comes without warning

    Return to the “vivid and unusual” ( Kirkus Reviews) world of Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle’s The Burning City, where the fire god has retreated into myth, leaving the residents of Tep’s Town unprotected for the first time in their history. Unfortunately, a fiery fate isn’t the only danger Tep’s Town is facing. Monsters are coming forth from the desert - great birds with blades instead of wings, driven by some unknown force. Although they can be killed, the threat these “terror birds” pose is worse than death.
