General Note
"A Del Rey trade paperback original."
"Joe Abercrombie's Best Served Cold meets George R. R. Martin's A Game of Thrones in the final novel in Richard K. Morgan's epic A Land Fit for Heroes trilogy, which burst onto the fantasy scene with The Steel Remains and The Cold Commands. Ringil Eskiath, a reluctant hero viewed as a corrupt degenerate by the very people who demand his help, has traveled far in search of the Illwrack Changeling, a deathless human sorcerer-warrior raised by the bloodthirsty Aldrain, former rulers of the world. Separated from his companions--Egar the Dragonbane and Archeth--Ringil risks his soul to master a deadly magic that alone can challenge the might of the Changeling. While Archeth and the Dragonbane embark on a trail of blood and tears that ends up exposing long-buried secrets, Ringil finds himself tested as never before, with his life and all existence hanging in the balance. Praise for Richard K. Morgan and his acclaimed series, A Land Fit for Heroes "Bold, brutal, and making no compromises--Richard K. Morgan doesn't so much twist the cliches of fantasy as take an axe to them. Then set fire to them."--Joe Abercrombie "Morgan has taken traditional sword and sorcery tropes and given them a hard, contemporary kick. The anitithesis of the cosy fairytale, this one is for big boys."--The Times (London) "A crisp stylist who demonstrates equal facility with action scenes and angst."--The New York Times Book Review "A full-immersion experience, uncompromising and bleakly magnificent."--Kirkus Reviews"--,Provided by publisher.
"In this genre-defying fantasy Richard K. Morgan brings us Ringil Eskiath, hero to many but friend to few, who is an aging warrior thrust back into the violent life that he thought he'd left behind. Despite being a war hero, Ringil is also viewed as a corrupt degenerate by polite society...but unfortunately, that society needs him for its own survival"--,Provided by publisher.
