Description

The thrilling new installment in the ambitious Acacia trilogy, praised by the Washington Post as “gripping and sophisticated.”A few years have passed since the conquering of the Mein, and Queen Corinn is firmly in control of the Known World-perhaps too firmly. With plans to expand her empire, she sends her brother, Daniel, on an exploratory mission to the Other Lands. There Daniel discovers a lush, exotic mainland ruled by an alliance of tribes that poses a grave danger to the stability of the Known World. Is Queen Corinn strong enough to face this new challenge? Readers of this bold, imaginative sequel will not be disappointed in the answer.

Praise For The Other Lands

“A big, fat, rich piece of history-flavored fantasy. . . . Imagined with remarkable thoroughness.” —Time“A novel of large impact, as radical a rewriting of George R. R. Martin as Martin himself has performed on Tolkien.” —Locus “Thrilling. . . . Durham's new world-like our old one-is crawling with wickedly fascinating [characters].” —Entertainment Weekly
