The Sacred Band

by David Anthony Durham
Release date: October 2, 2011
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasyhigh fantasy

From a “master of the fantasy epic” (Washington Post), the thrilling final installment in this gripping fantasy/adventure saga

With the first two books in the Acacia Trilogy, Acacia and The Other Lands, David Anthony Durham created a vast and engrossing vision of a world in turmoil, and of the surviving children of a royal dynasty on quests to realize their fates - and perhaps right ancient wrongs once and for all.

As The Sacred Band begins, one of them, Queen Corinn, bestrides the world with her mastery of spells found in The Song of Elenet. Her younger brother, Dariel, becomes a mythic figure in the Other Lands, while her sister Mena travels to the far noth to confront an invasion from a brutal race intent on conquering the Known World. Their separate trajectories converge in several tumultuous battles, all rendered with vivid detail and in heroic scale.

David Anthony Durham concludes his award-winning tale of empires in collision in grand style, with a historian's eye for detail, Shakespearean complexity, and a unique vision of a fantastical world.

“Provides the best of both worlds: epic world-changing conflict and touching character-centered story. What else could you possibly want?” - Patrick Rothfuss
