Dreamblood #1 / #2: The Dreamblood Duology: The Killing Moon / The Shadowed Sun
The Killing Moon: In the city-state of Gujaareh, peace is the only law, and there is no crime or violence. Priests of the dream-goddess harvest the wild power of the sleeping mind as magic, using it to heal, soothe - and kill. Ehiru, most famous of the city's Gatherers, must thwart a conspiracy and prevent the unleashing of deadly forbidden magic. He must also defeat a Gatherer's most terrifying nemesis: the Reaper.

The Shadowed Sun: Gujaareh's enemies have conquered the land, administering their own brand of order with the fist and the sword. There is no peace to be had in this city where peace is the only law - not even in dreams, as a deadly plague of nightmares begins to spread.
