The dazzling second book in Bakker’s “exquisitely intelligent and beautifully written” (Steven Erikson) saga.

Praised by readers and critics around the world, R. Scott Bakker has become one of the most celebrated voices in fantasy fiction. The Aspect-Emperor trilogy follows on from the acclaimed Prince of Nothing trilogy and The White-Luck Warrior is the chilling second book in the new series. Ruler Anasurimbor Kellhus and his Great Ordeal march ever farther into the Ancient North, as his consort Esmenet finds herself at war. Exiled wizard Achamian, meanwhile, leads his own ragtag mission to the legendary ruins of Sauglish. Into this tumult walks the White-Luck Warrior, assassin and messiah both. In this ambitious volume, Bakker delves even further into his richly imagined universe of myth, violence, and sorcery.

    " Absolutely wonderful addition to the Prince of Nothing series. I really can hardly wait for the next volume, which Wikipedia says will be called "The Unholy Consult". "

    " Re-read this last week - as middle parts of trilogies go, this is as good as Empire Strikes Back "

    " Why do I keep reading this?! I liked his previous books but this one is bogged down in the details of three interlinked plots, multiple characters with similarly unmemorable names, and seems to mistake complexity for story. I'm 3/4 of the way done and wish I'd never started it. "

    " Outstanding follow up to Aspect Emperor. More gritty details into the mind of surviving nasty ordeals - good detail on the misery of company "
