Praised by fans and critics worldwide, R. Scott Bakker has become one of the most celebrated voices in fantasy literature. Now he returns with the long-awaited The White-Luck Warrior - the chilling second book in the epic Aspect-Emperor series.

As ruler Anasûrimbor Kellhus and his Great Ordeal march ever farther into the wastes of the Ancient North, his consort Esmenet finds herself at war with not only the gods, but also her own family. Exiled wizard Achamian, meanwhile, leads his own ragtag expedition to the legendary ruins of Sauglish, and to a truth he can scarcely survive, let alone comprehend. Into this tumult walks the White-Luck Warrior, assassin and messiah both, executing a mission as old as the world's making...

The Aspect-Emperor fantasy trilogy follows on from R. Scott Bakker's acclaimed Prince of Nothing saga, returning to the same world twenty years later. The White-Luck Warrior follows Book One of the trilogy, The Judging Eye. In this ambitious new trilogy, R. Scott Bakker has delved even further into his richly imagined universe of myth, violence, and sorcery, brilliantly reinventing the fantasy genre to reach new heights of intricacy and meaning. Dazzling and suspenseful, it is a magnificent portrayal of war itself.
