All is not well in the Letherii Empire. Rhulad Sengar, the Emperor of a Thousand Deaths, spirals into madness, surrounded by sycophants and agents of his Machiavellian chancellor, while the Letherii secret police conduct a campaign of terror against their own people. The Errant, once a far-seeing god, is suddenly blind to the future. Conspiracies seethe throughout the palace as the empire edges closer to all-out war with the neighboring kingdoms.
The great Edur fleet draws ever closer. Among its warriors are Karsa Orlong and Icarium Lifestealer - each destined to cross blades with the emperor himself. A band of fugitives seeks a way out of the empire. One of them, Fear Sengar, must find the soul of Scabandari Bloodeye. Yet traveling with them is Scabandari’s most ancient foe: Silchas Ruin. His motives are anything but certain, for the wounds he carries on his back, made by the blades of Scabandari, are still fresh.
Fate decrees that there is to be a reckoning - a reckoning on an unimaginable scale. This is a brutal, harrowing novel of war, intrigue, and dark, uncontrollable magic; this is epic fantasy at its most imaginative, storytelling at its most thrilling.
“The kind of epic narrative that will have you scrambling for more.” —Stephen R. Donaldson
“Extraordinarily enjoyable… Erikson is a master of lost and forgotten epochs, a weaver of ancient epics.” —Salon

Michael Page kills another epic series
Anyone who enjoys poor, naive, simplistic narrators.
How the publishers ruined potentially the finest fantasy series with a catastrophically poor decision to remove Ralph Lister.
Never. This is the fifth or sixth fantasy series ruined by either thIS narrator or the audiobook publisher replacing with similar narrators.
Over the last decade it has become obvious to me that professional, sophisticated, and dynamic narrators in fantasy and science-fiction writing may be the finest, most pure forms of entertainment available.
Narrators that set the standard and make for exciting, compelling audiobooks:
Ralph Lister, Steven Pacey, Rupert Degas, Roy Dotrice, Christian Rodska, Steven Brand, Peter Kenny, Toby Longworth, Simon Vance (sometimes).
PUBLISHERS PLEASE TAKE NOTE. MIRROR FUTURE NARRATORS ON THE MEN ABOVE. THEY ARE THE ONLY GOOD NARRATORS.
This series just keeps getting better!!
