Publisher Description

'A captivating epic fantasy from a major new talent' Anthony Ryan, author of Blood Song

***ONE OF TIME MAGAZINE'S 100 BEST FANTASY BOOKS OF ALL TIME***

IN A WORLD CONSUMED BY ENDLESS WAR ONE YOUNG MAN WILL BECOME HIS PEOPLE'S ONLY HOPE FOR SURVIVAL.

The Omehi people have been fighting an unwinnable war for generations. The lucky ones are born gifted: some have the power to call down dragons, others can be magically transformed into bigger, stronger, faster killing machines.

Everyone else is fodder, destined to fight and die in the endless war. Tau Tafari wants more than this, but his plans of escape are destroyed when those closest to him are brutally murdered.

With too few gifted left, the Omehi are facing genocide, but Tau cares only for revenge. Following an unthinkable path, he will strive to become the greatest swordsman to ever live, willing to die a hundred thousand times for the chance to kill three of his own people.

Brilliant

This book is the first one since Brandon Sanderson’s ‘the way of kings’ that I immediately re-read to experience it again. One review I saw for this book is that it was ‘game of thrones and gladiator mixed together’. I say that this is a discredit to the book. This is the story of a young man who will go to any means necessary to achieve his goal, a suitably awesome one I might add, and it is a page turner from start to finish something that can’t be said, in my opinion of parts of a song of ice and fire.

My highest praises to Mr Evan Winter, what a talent that has been unearthed. I can safely say that I’m waiting in suspense for the next book in what will, if the level of writing is maintained, be remembered as one of the great fantasy series of our time!!!
