About the Author
Then, in fourth grade, I read The Chronicles of Narnia, and I was hooked. Every book in the series seemed better than the last, and I understood how much joy could be found in stories. That year my teacher read Where the Red Fern Grows to our class, and I cried. There again was the power of words, of story.
Later, my father read The Eyes of the Dragon to my brother and me. We were swept away, wondering at the fate of the boy in the tower and fearing Flag’s devices.
Then came Little Women, and Gone with the Wind, “The Most Dangerous Game,” Wuthering Heights, Brave New World, and Sense and Sensibility. Tragically, I didn’t discover Tolkien until I was almost an adult, but I made up for my late arrival to the party by reading most of his published works.
It is only in recent years that I’ve discovered how deep is my love for epic fantasy. I love the idea that anything is possible in the world of fantasy. There is no limit to the imagination, and I can choose to embark on any kind of adventure. --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

I can't remember a novel like it. Sorensen's prose feels dark and heavy. You can feel the grasping, reaching gloom. You can feel the desperation for a single spark or ember of hope.
This is an excellent book that I look forward to returning to many times over.
It's a masterclass on balance and building tension, without losing any of the meticulous world-building and character development needed to drive the plot forward. But beyond the technical prowess of Sorensen's storytelling, the story was immersive and real. It is legend and history and fantasy all tied into one.
It's surprising to find a well-written dark fantasy so hopeful and courageous at its core. This is it. It was beautiful and true and it made me long for things I've forgotten.
And you will love it.
