“Erikson is a master of lost and forgotten epochs, a weaver of ancient epics.” —Salon
“Erikson has no peer when it comes to action and imagination, and joins the ranks of Tolkien and Donaldson in his mythic vision and perhaps then goes one better.” —SF Site
“Gripping, fast-moving, delightfully dark, with a masterful and unapologetic brutality reminiscent of George R. R. Martin… Utterly engrossing.” —Elizabeth Haydon,bestselling author ofThe Symphony of Ages
“This masterwork of imagination may be the high-water mark of epic fantasy.” —Glen Cook,bestselling author of The Black Company
