''Blade of Tyshalle'' takes place seven years later, reintroducing Hari and Shanna in their later married, unhappy and semi-retired lives (along with the no longer divine [=Tan'elKoth=]). This tedium is of course shattered by plots set into action by the corporate leaders of Earth which Hari's friend, Kris Hansen/Deliann Mithondionne tries to avert. This novel turns the moral philosophizing up to 11 or 12, adds questions of identity, resource usage, destiny (or lack thereof) and humanity's drive to exploit and use up everything. It also features the end of the world, in a way.

There are currently four books: ''Heroes Die'', ''Blade of Tyshalle'', ''Caine Black Knife'', and ''Caine's Law''. In addition, Stover has created the [[http://Overworld.tv Overworld.tv]] project, which will initially involve a graphic novel in the Acts of Caine continuity.

**However, this is subverted in that patterning spells in this manner is done for convenience rather than necessity. Magic requires enourmous concentration to pull off without the aid of these items and only a very small number of extremely skilled thaumaturgists can really kick butt without them.

* ZombieApocalypse: HVRP is rather similar to one. Infectees are fully concious the whole time, and grow more and more paranoid and violent as their physical condition degrades. It was estimated that every victim with the virus killed 2.8 people. It led to the breakdown of standard government and the rise of the Caste system of corporate overlords.
