Description
Bahzell of the Hradani is Back Exciting Fantasy Adventure by the "New York Times" Best-Selling Author of the Honor Harrington Series. First Time in Paperback.
In The War God's Own, Bahzell had managed to stop a war by convincing Baron Tellian, leader of the Sothoii, to "surrender" to him, the War God's champion. Now, he has journeyed to the Sothoii Wind Plain to oversee the parole he granted to Tellian and his men, to represent the Order of Tomanak, the War God, and to be an ambassador for the hradani. What's more, the flying coursers of the Sothoii have accepted Bahzell as a wind rider-the first hradani wind rider in history. And since the wind riders are the elite of the elite among the Sothoii, Bahzell's ascension is as likely to stir resentment as respect. That combination of duties would have been enough to keep anyone busy-even a warrior prince like Bahzell-but additional complications are bubbling under the surface. The goddess Shigu, the Queen of Hell, is sowing dissension among the war maids of the Sothoii. The supporters of the deposed Sothoii noble who started the war are plotting to murder their new leige lord and frame Bahzell for the deed. Of course, those problems are all in a day's work for a champion of the War God. But what is Bahzell going to do about the fact that Baron Tellian's daughter, and heir to the realm, seems to be thinking that he is the only man-or hradani-for her?


About the Author
David Weber is the science fiction phenomenon of the decade. His popular Honor Harrington novels ("New York Times" bestsellers "Ashes of Victory" and "War of Honor" are the ninth and tenth in the series) can't come out fast enough for his devoted readers. His popular novels of the adventures of Bahzell of the hradani-"Oath of Swords" and "The War God's Own" precede "Wind Rider's Oath"-have proven that he is equally a master of epic fantasy adventure. In addition to the Honor Harrington series, he has written many more top-selling science fiction novels, all for Baen, including "Mutineers' Moon," "The Armageddon Inheritance," "Heirs of Empire," and "Path of the Fury." He has also begun an epic SF adventure series in collaboration with fellow "New York Times" best seller John Ringo, with four novels so far: "March Upcountry," "March to the Sea," "March to the Stars" and "We Few."
