When sorrow roots the bended knee
and torn are hearts, and bleeding free,
and Justice hath no word to say
beware, for these shall warn The Day.
In the kingdom of Mor, dark wizard Sartean D’Avers accelerates his scheme to usurp Halsen’s throne as the world of Tahr continues to crumble. An intricate web of intrigues, betrayals, and counter-schemes is woven as new players emerge seeking justice, vengeance, and long-delayed redemption.
As the political machinations in Mor reach a crescendo, the ash of Fang buries the lands of Greater Tahr in a grey blanket of death—and the kingdoms of Belgorne and Thornwood face a growing calamity they cannot even name to oppose. Confronted by the threat of nothing less than the utter annihilation of their homelands, the dwarves and elves prepare to make war against their perceived common enemy: G’naath.
Yet, fragments of hope persist. Sir Barris, First Knight of Thornwood, discharges his Order’s most solemn duty. Lucan, Aria, J’arn and Shyla begin to recognize the fragile threads of providence that have drawn them together. And despite his immeasurable power, the great and terrible Master of Kehrlia discovers that there is one who can oppose him—one who may perhaps even warrant his ruin.
But when the wizened Cindra Sandshingle unravels a wicked gnomish conspiracy decades in the making, the evil she discovers may very well prove more than all the heroes, armies, and magics of Tahr can withstand.
Lovingly polished by former Del Rey Editor-in-Chief Betsy Mitchell (editor of Terry Brooks’ Shannara series, Naomi Novik’s Temeraire books, and over 40 more bestselling fantasy and sci-fi legends), The Days of Ash and Fury saga continues in this gripping second installment, Tremors of Fury.
