‘Parker’s acerbic wit and knowledge of human nature are a delight to read as he explores the way conflict is guided, in equal measure, by the brilliance and unerring foolishness of humanity . . . . Thoroughly engaging.’ – RT Books Reviews

‘Assassins, emperors, generals, rogues, farmboys-turned-hero – all the trappings of epic fantasy . . . [and] all the complexity you could ever desire’ – PORNOKITSCH

A soldier with a gift for archery. A woman who kills without care. Two brothers, both unbeatable generals, now fighting for opposing armies.

No one in the vast and once glorious United Empire remains untouched by the rift between East and West, and the war has been fought for as long as anyone can remember. Some still survive who know how it was started, but no one knows how it will end.

Except, perhaps, the Two of Swords.

World Fantasy Award-winning fantasy author K. J. Parker delivers his most ambitious work yet – the story of a war on a grand scale, told through the eyes of soldiers, politicians, victims and heroes.
