9780765306869

We have a preview and giveaway! For the epic fantasy series by Glen Cook ~ The Instrumentalities of the Night


Here is a bit about each book as well as purchasing links. The latest and just released first:

Surrender to the Will of the Night (book three) ~ Glen Cook   

Piper Hecht’s first and greatest secret is that he knows how to kill gods. What’s not a secret is that he knows how to win wars.

As ever, the genius of Glen Cook’s storytelling lies in his common  touch: in soldiers who are like real soldiers, in men and women who love and laugh and sweat, with real hopes and real fears, united only in their determination to face the oncoming night.

    Lord of the Silent Kingdom (book two) ~ Glen Cook  

    It’s cold. The wells of power are weakening and the forces of Night grow strong. The gods are real, and still have some power, mostly to do harm.  The Instrumentalities of the Night are the worst of these.

    Sieges, explosions, betrayals, Anti-Patriarchs, and suspicious deaths will ensue as the great chess game plays itself out, with Piper Hecht at the center of it all…

    The Tyranny of the Night (book one) ~ Glen Cook:  

    Welcome to the world of the Instrumentalities of the Night, where imps, demons, and dark gods rule in the spaces surrounding upstart humanity. At the edges of the world stand walls of ice which push slowly forward to reclaim the land for the night. And at the world’s center, in the Holy Land where two great religions were born, are the Wells of Ihrain, the source of the greatest magics. Over the last century the Patriarchs of the West have demanded crusades to claim the Wells from the Pramans, the followers of the Written. Now an uneasy truce extends between the Pramans and the West, waiting for a spark to start the conflict anew.

    Hello, Shellie. Yes, please enter me in this contest for Glen Cook's novels.

    Sidenote: I sort of met Glen Cook at an SF convention in Iowa earlier this year (the same one I met Janny Wurts and Don Maitz at). He had a table in the dealer's room and may have participated in some panels, but I was completely distracted by Janny.

    I'll blog about your contest when I get a chance.

    Thanks,

    Jon

    P.S. - Do you still need my e-mail address here?
