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.

A very thoughtful and philosophical read. This story has great world-building, complex characters, and an interesting faction system.

Great dark Fantasy. Characters have a lot of depth.My Favorite is Cnaiur Urs Skiotha, the most violent of all men.
