Widely praised by reviewers and a growing body of fans, Bakker has already established his reputation as one of the smartest writers in the fantasy genre—a writer in the line stretching from Peake to Tolkein. Now he returns to the Prince of Nothing universe with the long-awaited The Judging Eye, the first book in an all-new series.

Set twenty years after the end of The Thousandfold Thought, Bakker reintroduces us to a world that is at once familiar but also very different than the one readers thought they knew. Delving even further into his richly imagined universe of myth, violence, and sorcery, and fully remolding the fantasy genre to broaden the scope of intricacy and meaning, R. Scott Bakker has once again written a fantasy novel that defies all expectations and rewards the reader with an experience unlike any to be had in the canon of today’s literature.

    " The change in scope and focus from the first trilogy manages to not be jarring. Bakker's writing is still plenty interesting. As he showed with his host of characters from the first series, he doesn't need to be details the adventures of a superman to show just how clever he is. "

    " This is how to do bleak. This is the kind of book that makes me go outside and sit in the sun for a few minutes just to keep the unrelenting darkness from crushing me. "

    " After reading the first series in roughly a week, I was hoping for more greatness. Cannot say that, its definitely good, but has a very "setup" feel. Loving the older crazier Akka. "
