The fifth book set in Steph Swainston's unique world. Rarely has a world been so completely imagined and consistent yet open to flights of true fantasy.
Swainston's hero, Jant, is an enduring creation - the only amn who can fly, drug addicted, egotistical, vain, messenger of the Emperor. And one of a circle of 50 immortals leading amnkind in a war against an implacable foe.
Like all the others Jant could lose his place in the circle and hence his immortality if he is bested by a challenger. This knowledge haunts him.Biografía del autor:
