The Dark Defiles (A Land Fit for Heroes #3) - Richard Morgan7.80

North to the distant Hironish Isles in search of the last resting place of the Illwrack Changeling and the fabled floating city of An Kirilnar. A fine quest? Worthy of three heroic outcasts ready to reclaim their destiny? But on the bleak windswept turf slopes of the Isles the last resting place of the Changeling is rumoured to be everywhere and nowhere. And as for An Kirilnar...

Ringil Eskiath is running out of patience, Egar Dragonbane is desperate for a fight, any fight, just to break the monotony. Even the four thousand years of her heritage give Archeth Indamaninarmal no answers. Some tale of legend this turned out to be.

But the Dark Court, the ambitions of Empire and the greed of men have not finished with Ringil, Egar and Archeth. The Dwenda will not be denied, the Grey Places call, the magic burns ever more fiercely in Ringil. A war fought thousands of years before has not ended.

A Dark Lord will surely rise. But who?

Richard Morgan's thrillingly dark and strange high fantasy reaches its stunning conclusion in a pell-mell race across a world tipping into war. A war of ancient races and their technologies but all too human motives and fears.
