The Passing of the Gods

"The world is a thing of swords and hate. Men of love and charity are mistrusted and feared. All is now lost." Asawas, the Man Who Sees, the prophet of the last days, brings the truth of the end of the First World. He confronts the ultimate creature of Evil—Thameron, once a priest, now a monster of guile and fear—as the First World falls into its final war, a conflict that brings all civilization to ruin. Just one man understands—the Undying One, who may himself survive the catastrophe—but only if one other person, one soul, agrees to sacrifice her life for his. And the few others who remain, the very few—can they rescue what's left of humanity?

This classic trilogy of epic fantasy is now made available again for the first time in thirty years—to thrill and entertain an entirely new generation of readers! First-rate entertainment by a rediscovered master of fantastic literature!

The world is at war, and a great sorrowing vengeance, foretold long ago, comes to life in the darkest of times...

The West Is Dying

You will rule to see everything precious destroyed and every hope ruined. You will rule Athadia, and the world will die in anguish. The ambitious sons of a dead monarch fulfill an ancient prophecy—their battle for a bloody throne plunges the empire into a revolution. Like jackals, the nations around them seek to lure the greedy princes into further traps. One king offers his beautiful daughter as a prize. Another wishes only to fulfill his own destiny of endless war. And so an ancient world of empire and power—the First World—begins to collapse.

As the thrones fall and the battles rage, a tragic young priest becomes a force for evil more powerful than any empire or army. The world is at war. The West is dying. More blood will flow, and more kings will dies...

The first riveting novel in the great fantasy trilogy, The Fall of the First World, now available again for the first time in thirty years!
