Description

“David Anthony Durham has serious chops. I can’t wait to read whatever he writes next."
—George R. R. Martin


David Anthony Durham’s 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.
