THE TIME OF THE WOLF IS AT HAND...

Sixteen years have passed since the battle of Armagedir. The Torunnans and Merduks have become close allies in a world that is growing increasingly strange and fearsome.

The Himerian Church rules two thirds of the continent and is become a swollen, corrupt theocracy which strangles independent thought; only in Torunna, in Ostrabar and in Hebrion do Kings still rule free of the black-clad Inceptines.

But now off the coast of Hebrion, a vast fleet of ships comes sailing out of the empty west. The immortal arch-mage Aruan has returned to the Old World at last, and he intends to claim it as his own.

‘Simply the best fantasy series I’ve read in years and years.’
Steven Erikson, author of The Malazan Book of the Fallen
