“David Anthony Durham has serious chops. I can’t wait to read whatever he writes next.” —GEORGE R. R. MARTIN
The acclaimed fantasy saga, the Acacia Trilogy, continues….
As The Sacred Band begins, Queen Corinn bestrides the world as a result of her mastery of spells from the Book of Elenet. Her younger brother, Dariel, has been sent on a perilous mission to the Other Lands. And her sister, Mena, travels to the far north to face an invasion of the feared race of the Auldek. As their separate trajectories converge, a series of world-shaping, earth-shattering battles will force the surviving children of the Akaran dynasty to confront their fates head on—and right some ancient wrongs once and for all.
David Anthony Durham is the author of the novels Gabriel’s Story, Walk Through Darkness, and Pride of Carthage, and Acacia: The War With the Mein. Published in nine foreign languages, Durham lives with his wife and children in Western Massachusetts, where he’s working on the concluding volume of the Acacia Trilogy. www.davidanthonydurham.com
