Captain Merros Dulver is the first in many lifetimes to find a path beyond the great mountains known as the Seven Forges and encounter, at last, the half-forgotten race who live there. And it would appear that they were expecting him. As he returns home, bringing an entourage of strangers with him, he starts to wonder whether his discovery has been such a good thing. For the gods of this lost race are the gods of war, and their memories of that far-off cataclysm have not faded.
The people of Fellein have live with legends for many centuries. To their far north, the Blasted Lands, a legacy of an ancient time of cataclysm, are vast, desolate and impassable, but that doesn’t stop the occasional expedition into their fringes in search of any trace of the ancients who had once lived there… and oft-rumored riches.
This is either going to be absolutely epic, or not. I’m hoping it’s going to blow my mind! I love the cover, and of course, Angry Robot has a reputation for publishing excellent Fantasy. It’s also Moore’s début, so I’m excited about the possibility of discovering an amazing new author.
I’d love to see what you are waiting on … please leave links and I’ll be sure to check them out!
