This Rough MagicBook - 2003
In the sequel to The Shadow of the Lion, the demon sorcerer Chernobog, having failed in his attempt to gain power over Venice, enters into a dangerous alliance with the King of Hungary to seize control of Corfu, an island that holds the key to controlling the Adriatic, while the heroes who had saved Venice reunite to stop him.

Corfu in the sixteenth century. Key to Asia. Repository of a magic older than history itself. No wonder the demon Chernobog must possess the island - for with it in his grasp, Chernobog can finally crush Venice and defeat his immortal enemy, the Lion of San Marcos, who thwarted his previous bid for absolute power.
Now all hope depends on the derring-do of the small band of heroes who fought against the demon before - and the inner strength of one reluctant young heroine. For the ancient powers of Corfu care nothing for either Chernobog's lust for power, nor the human desire for freedom.
And anyone who would wield the island's primordial magic must pay with a piece of his - or her - soul.

Gloomily, Lopez finished the thought. "How do you keep track of people to see if any are disappearing-when half the people in this Citadel are here illegally to begin with? Thanks to that jackass Tomaselli!" "Charity, Eneko, charity," cautioned Francis. "I AM being charitable," grumbled Lopez. "Not to jackasses."
