Waterstones Says

Told with the same ironic twinkle and spirit of swashbuckling adventure that has helped to make the Witcher series such a phenomenal success, the second volume of the Hussite Trilogy brings to life the intrigue of the cut-throat streets of 15th century Europe as Reynevan’s story continues.

Warriors of God, the second volume of the Hussite Trilogy by Andrzej Sapkowski, author of the bestselling Witcher series, depicts the adventures of Reynevan and his friends in the years 1427-28 as war erupts across Europe.

Reynevan begins by hiding away in Bohemia but soon leaves for Silesia, where he carries out dangerous, secret missions entrusted to him by the leaders of the Hussite religion. At the same time he strives to avenge the death of his brother and discover the whereabouts of his beloved. Once again pursued by multiple enemies, Reynevan is constantly getting into and out of trouble.

Sapkowski's deftly written novel delivers gripping action full of numerous twists and mysteries, seasoned with elements of magic and Sapkowski's ever-present - and occasionally bawdy - sense of humour. Fans of the Witcher will appreciate the rich panorama of this slice of the Middle Ages.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Sapkowski's love for the period is clear as he touches on notorious historical events and figures, including the Defenestration of Prague and printing press inventor Johannes Gutenberg. The carefully painted landscapes and intricate politics, meanwhile, effortlessly draw readers into Reinmar's life and times. This is historical fantasy done right.' - Publishers Weekly

'A ripping yarn delivered with world-weary wit, bursting at the seams with sex, death, magic and madness.' - Joe Abercrombie

“Very long (unnecessarily so) historical fantasy novel, enjoyable nevertheless.”

This second volume in the Hussite trilogy is very long, very interesting, probably incredibly well-researched and also far too detailed which makes it a very long read. It's chock full of names of people and... More

The second of the author’s Hussite Trilogy – note to the reader: Do not read this until you have read the first volume, The Tower of Fools. Having said that, it’s great, and if you enjoyed the first, you will... More
