'A fine example of the new anti-epic fiction at its best . . . This is one of the more brilliant pieces of writing that you're liable to read for a long time.' - Seattle Post-Intelligencer

'One of the major-league fantasy releases of 2011, the highly awaited The White-Luck Warrior by Scott Bakker . . . Nobody can deny the powerful nature of those books . . . Overall [Bakker's books have] enriched the potential of the fantasy genre quite a lot.' - Fantasy Book Critic

A score of years after he first walked into the histories of men, Anasûrimbor Kellhus rules all the three seas, the first true aspect-emperor in a thousand years.

As Kellhus and his Great Ordeal march ever farther into the perilous wastes of the Ancient North, Esmenet finds herself at war with not only the Gods, but her own family as well. Achamian, meanwhile, leads his own ragtag expedition to the legendary ruins of Sauglish, and to a truth he can scarce survive, let alone comprehend.

Into this tumult walks the White Luck Warrior, assassin and messiah both, executing a mission as old as the World's making . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS

As cerebral and intricate as the first book in the Aspect-Emperor trilogy, The Judging Eye ... A must for readers rapt by the overall conception. - BOOKLIST

The worldbuilding is once again top notch. Bakker's narrative is richly detailed, creating an imagery that leaps off the page . . . The White-Luck Warrior is everything Bakker fans could hope for - PAT'S FANTASY HOTLIST

A wonderful sense of pace, some great action sequences and above all else the reader will have a title that really will satisfy the fantasy fan within. A great title all round and one that really has left the final book in the series as one where everything is to play for. Great stuff - FALCATA TIMES

A powerful, engrossing, ferociously intelligent novel that sees Bakker at the very top of his game. It leaves the reader on the edge of their seat for the concluding volume of the trilogy, The Unholy Consult - THE WERTZONE (5 star review)

The worldbuilding is once again top notch. Bakker's narrative is richly detailed, creating an imagery that leaps off the page . . . The White-Luck Warrior is everything Bakker fans could hope for - PAT’S FANTASY HOTLIST (8.5/10 rating)
