In Selenoth, the race of Man is on the ascendant. The ancient dragons sleep. The ghastly Witchkings are no more; their evil power destroyed by the courage of Men and the fearsome magic of the Elves. The Dwarves have retreated to the kingdoms of the Underdeep, the trolls hide in their mountains, and even the savage orc tribes have learned to dread the iron discipline of Amorr's mighty legions. But after four hundred years of mutual suspicion, the rivalry between two of the Houses Martial that rule the Amorran Senate threatens to turn violent, and unrest sparks rebellion throughout the imperial provinces. In the north, the barbarian reavers who have long plagued the coasts of the White Sea beg for the royal protection of the King of Savondir, as they flee a vicious race of wolf-demons. In the east, the war drums echo throughout the mountains as orcs and goblins gather in great numbers, summoned by their bestial gods.
And when the Sanctified Father is found dead in his bed, leaving the Ivory Throne of the Apostles unclaimed, the temptation to seize control of the Sacred College and wield Holy Mother Church as a weapon is more than some fallen souls can resist.

Five-time Hugo Award finalist Vox Day is a platinum-selling game designer who writes epic fantasy as well as non-fiction about religion, philosophy, and economics. His literary focus is historical verisimilitude and realistic characters who represent the full spectrum of human behavior. He speaks three languages and is a three-time Billboard top 40 recording artist.Review:
"This hefty tome has a scope and grandeur rivaling George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, but instead of mocking heroic ideals, Day celebrates them."
"This book contains strong traces DNA from Umberto Eco and Neal Stephenson, but it stands on its own as a fantastically monstrous creature."
"There are beautiful moments, there is clever dialogue, there is deep mystery. It took some level of genius to write it."
"Fantastic read. The only flaw is that the book is only about 800 pages."
