Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An uneasy truce exists between the thanes of the True Bloods. Now, as another winter approaches, the armies of the Black Road march south, from their exile beyond the Vale of Stones.

For some, war will bring a swift and violent death. Others will not hear the clash of swords or see the corpses strewn over the fields. Instead, they will see an opportunity to advance their own ambitions.

But soon, all will fall under the shadow that is descending. For while the storm of battle rages, one man is following a path that will awaken a terrible power in him — and his legacy will be written in blood.

The first volume of the Godless World trilogy. An uneasy truce exists between the thanes of the True Bloods. Now, as another winter approaches, the armies of the Black Road march south, from their exile beyond the Vale of Stones. Soon, all will fall under the shadow that is descending.

This is a book that you will either love or hate. Personally I loved it. It has all the action, adventure, battles, and suspense that you look for in a good book. But if you don't like learning a new history, world, creatures, and strange names, this book is not for you. It leads up to a slow second installment, which is made up for by having a suspenseful, great final novel that will keep you guessing till the end, and end different than you expected, but a good one.
