Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An ancient weapon has completely destroyed the city of Windwir. From many miles away, Rudolfo, Lord of the Nine Forest Houses, sees the horrifying column of smoke rising.  He knows that war is coming to the Named Lands.

Nearer to the Devastation, a young apprentice is the only survivor of the city - he sat waiting for his father outside the walls, and was transformed as he watched everyone he knew die in an instant.

Soon all the Kingdoms of the Named Lands will be at each others' throats, as alliances are challenged and hidden plots are uncovered.

This remarkable first novel from an award-winning short fiction writer will take readers away to a new world - an Earth so far in the distant future that our time is not even a memory; a world where magick is commonplace and great areas of the planet are impassable wastes. But human nature hasnt changed through the ages: War and faith and love still move princes and nations.

Danielle G, July 22, 2011 (view all comments by Danielle G)
I had given up on high fantasy novels five years ago, when everything seemed to be the same poorly-edited iteration of someone's epic war fantasy or role-playing game set in a Middle Earth-derived world.

Then a friend told me to read 'Lamentation.'

The riveting tale of magick, love, war, loss, and survival is not new, but Ken Scholes tells it like a true storyteller in a world that is original and vibrant. I couldn't put it down, and I found myself thinking about it long after I turned the last page.

The epic high fantasy is not dead. It has found new wings in Scholes' prose.
