Description

Joe Abercrombie's "Best Served Cold" meets George R. R. Martin's "A Game of Thrones" in the final novel in Richard K. Morgan's epic A Land Fit for Heroes trilogy, which burst onto the fantasy scene with "The Steel Remains" and "The Cold Commands." Ringil Eskiath, a reluctant hero viewed as a corrupt degenerate by the very people who demand his help, has traveled far in search of the Illwrack Changeling, a deathless human sorcerer-warrior raised by the bloodthirsty Aldrain, former rulers of the world. Separated from his companions--Egar the Dragonbane and Archeth--Ringil risks his soul to master a deadly magic that alone can challenge the might of the Changeling. While Archeth and the Dragonbane embark on a trail of blood and tears that ends up exposing long-buried secrets, Ringil finds himself tested as never before, with his life and all existence hanging in the balance. Praise for "The Dark Defiles"" " "A finale that displays all the purposefully hard edges and grim magnificence that made the first two volumes stand out."--"Kirkus Reviews"" " "Morgan brings his mammoth A Land Fit for Heroes fantasy trilogy to a rousing conclusion. . . . Expect surprises and suspense, along with the usual derring-do and entertaining characters."--"Booklist" Praise for Richard K. Morgan and his acclaimed series, A Land Fit for Heroes "Bold, brutal, and making no compromises--Richard K. Morgan doesn't so much twist the clichEs of fantasy as take an axe to them. Then set fire to them."--Joe Abercrombie "Morgan has taken traditional sword and sorcery tropes and given them a hard, contemporary kick. The anitithesis of the cosy fairytale, this one is for big boys."--"The Times" (London) "A crisp stylist who demonstrates equal facility with action scenes and angst.""--The New York Times Book Review" "A full-immersion experience, uncompromising and bleakly magnificent.""--Kirkus Reviews"
