'This is grown-up fantasy blessed with humour, intelligence and... panache. A bravura display of intricate storytelling and artfully-doled-out revelations.' - SFX

'A richly textured and emotionally complex fantasy...Highly recommended.' - Library Journal (Starred Review)

The engineer Ziani Vaatzes designed and built a war. Thousands died as a consequence of his elaborate plan.

The civil servant Manuo Psellus took the decision that started the war. The very foundations of his world are now threatened.

The ruler Duke Valens brought the war on himself. Now he must decide whether to sacrifice his country to save his people.

They embarked on the war for their own reasons, but as it takes on a life of its own they find they've become components in their own machine. And the machine, it seems, has one purpose: to render evil for evil.

The follow-up to Devices and Desires continues to push the boundaries of fantasy fiction in a fast-moving mix of politics, action and intelligent world-building.

I have reviewed books before that I thought might someday be found to have achieved greatness.... But I am trying to be precise in my use of the word when I tell you that K.J. Parker is writing work after work that demands to be placed in that category. -- ORSON SCOTT CARD
Brilliant -- LOCUS
When so many fantasy sagas are tired, warmed-over affairs, a writer like K.J. Parker is more of a hurricane than a breath of fresh air. -- DREAMWATCH
