9780007141548: Quicksilver Twilight (Quicksilver Trilogy)

Final volume in the powerful new fantasy adventure from Stan Nicholls, the British author of the internationally acclaimed Orcs series.Desperate to find a cure for the curse of immortality and the episodes of berserk fury and debilitating visions that plague him, Reeth Caldason has traded his fighting skills for the promise of access to powerful ancient magic. But the Resistance group he reluctantly joined as part of the bargain is in disarray since their plans to found an island utopia free from tyranny were betrayed by one of their own.Now, Reeth is trapped on the Diamond Isle, fending off the pirates that plague the surrounding waters. Despite his romantic entanglement with one of the freedom fighters, Serrah, and the responsibility he feels towards Kutch, a young magician's apprentice, he is determined to set off on the search for his cure. But as his visions grow stranger, Serrah and Kutch begin to understand his true nature and the great power it represents.Back on the mainland, Reeth's arch-enemy, Devlor Bastorran, remains intent on destroying him. Overshadowing everything is the threat of Zerreiss, the conquering barbarian warlord who uses an enigmatic ability to sweep all before him. The spectre of war looms.

Review:

Praise for the Quicksilver Trilogy:`"Quicksilver Rising" is brilliantly conceived and beautifully constructed. From the first gripping action scene it had me hooked. It has all the ingredients to become a classic of the genre.' David Gemmell`Nicholls tells a story into which the reader is dragged as willing victim. He has an eye for action and character, keeps the pace high, plot finely tuned and pages turning; and in "Quicksilver Rising" has delivered a hugely entertaining read.' James Barclay`Stan Nicholls puts modern dialogue into the mouths of high fantasy characters and echoes of our politics into the kingdoms he creates. Easily as much fun as you'd expect.' Jon Courtenay Grimwood, Guardian`Nicholls knows his stuff ... deft characterization ... full of action, magic, romance and politics.' StarburstExhilarating, innovative fantasy writing ... delivered with tremendous panache.' Publishing News`A cracking blend of high fantasy adventure and thought-provoking political thriller - a real feast for intelligent imaginations.' Louise Cooper'Fast-paced, high adventure ... a bare-knuckle fight with a magic punch.' Mark Chadbourn
