Product Description

With his spectacularly powerful debut The Darkness That Comes Before, a fantasy epic that rewrote that conventions of the fantasy genre and garnered thunderous praise from both reviewers and peers such as Steven Erikson, R. Scott Bakker introduced readers to his richly imagined world of myth, violence, and sorcery. In The Warrior Prophet, the second volume of the Prince of Nothing trilogy, the thrilling story of the powerful logical-monk Anas rimbor Kellhus and the apocalyptic Holy War is continued, as readers are invited further into the darkly enchanting, horrifyingly threatening battlescape upon which the war will be decided.

As the crusade plunges violently southward, struggling with both the enemy and internecine turmoil, the enigmatic Kellhus finds himself ever closer to the elusive goal of meeting his father, gaining further mastery of the ancient knowledge he will need for the encounter. And amid the brewing apocalypse, his swift-rising career has aroused more than curiosity from his enemies. With each step south, the challenges and perils mount, as the enigmas surrounding Kellhus and his quest blur in and out of focus.

Boldly imaginative, wickedly suspenseful, tantalizingly adventurous, The Warrior Prophet furthers Bakker s claim to highest ranks of the fantasy genre.
