(From the publisher):
A score of years after he first walked into the histories of Men, Anasūrimbor Kellhus rules all the Three Seas, the first true Aspect-Emperor in a thousand years.
The masses worship Kellhus as a living god, though a few dare claim hes a walking demon. With Proyas and Saubon as his Exalt-Generals, he leads a holy war deep into the wastes of the Ancient North, intent on preventing the Second Apocalypse.
Meanwhile his wife and consort, Esmenet, remains in Momemn, where she struggles to rule not only his vast empire, but their murderous children as well. And Achamian, who lives as a Wizard in embittered exile, undertakes a mad quest to uncover the origins of the Dūnyain.
But Achamian, of all people, should know that one must be very careful what one seeks...
