The Darkness That Comes BeforeBook - 2004
Bakker's utterly foreign world, Earwa, is as complex as that of Tolkien. He creates an extraordinary cast of nationalities and races involved in an enormous holy war set off by an unseen prophet, Maithanet. He casually drops for half the story an increasingly important character, Anas rimbor Kellhus (aka "the Prince of Nothing"), who finally returns without a breath of exposition. The amiable and wise sorcerer spy Drusas Achamian binds the myriad narrative threads together.
