Synopsis for R. Scott Bakker's THE WHITE-LUCK WARRIOR

Here's a brief blurb you can find at the end of the paperback version of the Canadian edition of The Judging Eye (Canada, USA, Europe):

As Anasûrimbor 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 …

The White-Luck Warrior is a story filled with heart-stopping action, devious treachery, grand passion and meticulous detail. It is both a classic quest tale and a high fantasy war story
.

Can't wait!

How ironic. I just ordered "The Judging Eye" earlier today from bookcloseouts.com, brand new for $5.99. I think this is the edition they're sending.

Although I have his original trilogy and Neuropath sitting on my shelf, still unread.

Shame on me...

I share your enthusiasm for Scott Bakker's work. But am trying extremely hard to not read his latest aspect emperor trilogy until its completed, cause if I read one I'll be extremely unhappy if I don't get the other two books right after.
What are your thoughts, is it as much fun reading a novel from a series especially one you love as much as this one, then having to wait for the others for 1-2 years?

It definitely dampens the experience, especially if you can't remember everything you're supposed to remember.

Bakker is one of the few authors these days who puts a 'STORY SO FAR' in the book (although in TJE it was at the end for some reason) which does a good job of reminding you of what needs to be remembered. I think Tad Williams is the only other big fantasy author who does this regularly.

Pat, do you know if TWLW has been turned in or are Overlook/Orbit still waiting for the MS from Scott?

Patrick said...

Last I heard, Scott was still writing it...

Any news on that interview you mentioned sometime late last year?
