Publisher's Summary

The Last Witchking and Other Stories contains six tales set in the epic fantasy world of A Throne of Bones and A Sea of Skulls.
The title story concerns the hidden heir to a fallen race of magicians, who learns his father's dark lore as he pursues vengeance against those who destroyed his people. "The Hoblets of Wiccam Fensboro" is a tale of survival and the triumph of simple decency in the face of brutality and defeat. "The Wardog's Coin" is a gritty first-person account of war and magic, goblins, and secret weapons.
In "Qalabi Dawn", a new nation is formed from warring demon-spawned tribes, then set against a legion of Amorrans led by a dangerously cautious man. The rich fantasy continues in "A Magic Broken", as an undercover magician faces a new and dangerous town - and a team of enterprising dwarves - in pursuit of a mysterious woman forced into prostitution. Finally, the Hugo-nominated "Opera Vita Aeterna" tells the story of an elven sorcerer and a religious monk, and how they discover that the transformational power of friendship can be the highest and most potent magic of all.

Very pleasantly surprised

I listened to The Last Witchking & Other Stories. I was quite pleasantly surprised. I'm not often a fan of darker fiction, but the stories in the collection varied widely in setting and theme, even though all are set in the universe of A Throne of Bones. I liked the narrator also. I'm glad to hear that the audio version of A Throne of Bones is coming soon, as I'd prefer to hear it rather than read it. The narrator is the same.
