By Matthew Woodring Stover
In Heroes Die and Blade of Tyshalle, Matthew Stover created a brand new form of delusion novel, and a brand new form of hero to compliment it: Caine, a highway thug grew to become big name, combating in a destiny the place truth indicates ensue in one other size, on a global the place magic exists and gods are up shut and private. In that stunning, savage land, Caine is an murderer with no peer, a dwelling legend born from one of many highest-rated fact exhibits ever made. That season, Caine virtually single-handedly defeated–and all yet exterminated–the fiercest of all tribes: the Black Knives. however the surprising fact of what relatively came about in the course of that blood-drenched event hasn't ever been printed . . . until eventually now.
Thirty years later, Caine returns to the scene of his maximum triumph–some may say maximum crime–at the request of his followed brother Orbek, the final of the genuine Black Knives. yet the place Caine is going, hazard follows, and he quickly unearths himself again in conventional territory: combating for his existence opposed to very unlikely odds, with the destiny of 2 worlds placing within the stability.
Just the best way Caine likes it.
