A spectre is haunting the empire--the specter of war.
Huge stone creatures have fallen from the sky, their bodies littering the countryside. Blood-hungry golems are used to fight a never-ending war for political power. Secret police crush insurgency wherever it's found.
Investigator Vissarion Lom has been summoned to Mirrored to quell a new rebellion within the city limits. He's been called because he's an outsider. Because he isn't enmeshed in the city's politics. And because of the piece of stone embedded in his forehead.
Collected for the first time in an omnibus edition, the internationally acclaimed Wolfhound Century trilogy is a perfect blend of fantasy, myth, science fiction and political thriller.
Higgins's visionary fantasy trilogy describes a city gripped by fear, controlled by a totalitarian state reminiscent of Stalinist Russia.
