About the Author

Joe Abercrombie is a freelance film editor living in Bath with his wife and daughters.


Black Dow, Protector of the North, wages war against the King of the Union as their great armies meet on a plot of ground near a ring of stones known as "The Heroes." Heroic fantasy, with an emphasis on military actions and magical warfare, marches to the forefront in Abercrombie's (Best Served Cold) latest novel. Featuring a colorful cast of warriors, wizards, and royalty, this tale of individual heroics in the context of a three-day battle blends broad-scale action with the gritty details of men at war. VERDICT Reminiscent of Steven Erikson's Malazan novels and Jim Butcher's Codex Alera novels in terms of scope and military action, this will appeal particularly to military fantasy buffs.

Highly recommended - a funny, finely-wrought, terrifically energetic work of high fantasy. Seek it out -- Joe Hill
