By Daniel Abraham

Orb Books, Paperback, 9780765333650, 572pp.

Publication Date: November 27, 2012


Otah Machi, caught between ancient wonders and a modern empire, has survived more than most men endure in two lifetimes. In "Price of War," an omnibus collection of "An Autumn War "and "The Price of Spring," magic and treacherous politics bring a bitter harvest of violence and tragedy to the world he must defend.

But when all is darkest and the world seems utterly lost, there is yet hope for the salvation of a future yet undiscovered. All depends on Otah, and those with the power to shape it, if they can find the courage to forgive their own trespasses and redeem their lost hopes.

This unforgettable fantasy epic series, the Long Price Quartet, marks Daniel Abraham as a unique voice and one of the most enthralling fantasy writers to emerge in recent years.

A Betrayal in Winter is exactly the kind of book I love.”

“A thoroughly engrossing debut novel from a major new fantasist.”
—George R. R. Martin, bestselling author of A Game of Thrones, on A Shadow in Summer

“Daniel Abraham will lead you into a strange, seductive world. Intricate, elegant, and almost hypnotically told, this tale of gods held captive will hold you captive, too.”
