Product description

Review

"Absolutely stunning. A gritty, well-constructed tale, this dark, haunting story is about a man who has seen and done terrible things. Not a typical epic fantasy, it will provide a challenge to many readers, but it's absolutely worth reading."

-- "RT Book Reviews (41/2 stars, Top Pick!)"

"Bold, brutal, and making no compromises--Morgan doesn't so much twist the clichés of fantasy as take an axe to them."

-- "Joe Abercrombie, author of the First Law trilogy"

"Morgan has taken traditional sword and sorcery tropes and given them a hard, contemporary kick. The antithesis of the cosy fairytale, this one is for big boys."

-- "Times (London)"

"Morgan takes plot elements that are as old as those of Lord of the Rings or Conan the Barbarian and gives them a freshness by importing many of the themes that drove his sci-fi work."

-- "Bookmarks magazine"

"Spellbinding...There's so much to like about the adventure."

-- "Newark (NJ) Star-Ledger"

"The award-winning author of Altered Carbon and Market Forces brings the same iconoclastic approach to his fantasy debut as he did to his SF technothrillers...Morgan's storytelling talent and his atmospheric, hard-hitting prose make this a strong addition to mature fantasy collections."

-- "Library Journal"

"The well-developed characters and realistic battle scenes ring true, as do some gruesomely explicit sex scenes...[A] dark, gritty tale."

-- "Publishers Weekly"

Morgan's storytelling talent and his atmospheric, hard-hitting prose make this a strong addition to mature fantasy collections.-- "Library Journal"
