’A fine example of the new anti-epic fiction at its best . . . This is one of the more brilliant pieces of writing that you’re liable to read for a long time.’ – Seattle Post-Intelligencer
’One of the major-league fantasy releases of 2011, the highly awaited The White-Luck Warrior by Scott Bakker . . . Nobody can deny the powerful nature of those books . . . Overall [Bakker’s books have] enriched the potential of the fantasy genre quite a lot.’ – Fantasy Book Critic
A score of years after he first walked into the histories of men, Anasûrimbor Kellhus rules all the three seas, the first true aspect-emperor in a thousand years.
As Kellhus and his Great Ordeal march ever farther into the perilous wastes of the Ancient North, Esmenet finds herself at war with not only the Gods, but her own family as well. Achamian, meanwhile, leads his own ragtag expedition to the legendary ruins of Sauglish, and to a truth he can scarce survive, let alone comprehend.
Into this tumult walks the White Luck Warrior, assassin and messiah both, executing a mission as old as the World’s making . . .
The second volume in the ambitious and compelling Aspect-Emperor fantasy series
