If death is the only true peace, then there can be only one true peacemaker...the Terror.

In the land of Imphallion, one legend is remembered with horror—the Terror of the East. Twice his shadow has fallen across the land. First to conquer it. Then to save it. Both times he brought blood and death as his companions. And both times, he faded into bleak memory...

Years later, memories are all Corvis Rebaine has left. The most painful of which is the memory of his beloved wife and children fleeing from him in horror after they learned of his terrible legacy. War has cost him more than his life, and he wants no more of it. But what Rebaine no longer matters. Because the Terror has returned.

A merciless killer seemingly clad in the Terror’s old battle dress and wielding his demon-forged axe is sweeping across the land, slaughtering all in his path. And worse, an old enemy has returned to claim revenge, aided by a woman whose very soul is consumed with rage and hatred towards Rebaine—his own daughter.

Now Rebaine must again wear the dreaded dark armor if he is going to save Imphallion as well as all he holds dear. But after so much war, so much blood, and so much pain, can he summon the strength to truly become the Terror once more?

“The sequel to The Conqueror’s Shadow fills a vital niche in the fantasy adventurer genre, one occupied by the heroes of Michael Moorcock’s Elric Melniboné novels and C.S. Friedman’s Coldfire Trilogy.”—Library Journal

“All a reader could ever ask for in a bloody, hack and slash sword and sorcery.”—Grasping for the Wind

“Another thoroughly entertaining offering from Ari Marmell and one that any fantasy fan will have a lot of fun with.”—Graeme’s Fantasy Book Review

Ari Marmell
It is a curse to be haunted by the past.
It is worse to be hunted by it...

In the realm of Imphallion, there once was a nightmare—a living nightmare known only as the Terror of the East. Nigh invulnerable in his magical black armor and aided by unholy minions, he laid waste to all in his path on his all-consuming quest to bring order to the land. His order.

Then, at what should have been his moment of triumph, his will failed. And his army fell. Taking a young noblewoman as hostage, he escaped, vanishing into darkest memory.

Years later, Corvis Rebaine is a simple man, content with his loving wife and children. The terrible deeds and glories of his past life are dead and buried along with his former name and its monstrous legacy—until his daughter is taken by fiends under a maniacal young warlord looking to complete the Terror’s conquest.

Now, spurred to action by a newborn fury and thirst for vengeance, Rebaine must do the unthinkable—don the dark armor once again, gather his once-loyal cadre of killers, and fight to save both the family he loves and the country he once almost destroyed. And all who stand in his way will have one final thought before death...

The Terror has returned.

“Action-packed...an intriguingly twisty plot, full of magic and political intrigue.”—Booklist

“Superior storytelling and deft dialog make this a top-notch choice . . . filled with dark humor as well as scenes of brutal battle and high magic.”—Library Journal

“A powerful fantasy, with well drawn heroes and delightfully wicked, yet complicated, villains. Ari Marmell has made his mark in the genre.”—Paul S. Kemp, author of the Erevis Cale trilogy

“A tale that begins where most stories end and features a most unlikely protagonist. Twists of humor leaven this story of desperate people in dangerous times, as a conqueror discovers that perhaps those who live by the sword are sometimes doomed to face the business end of one. A great mix of character and action.”—Robin Hobb, author of Dragon Keeper

Book 3
The #1 New York Times bestselling sequel to Words of Radiance, from epic fantasy author Brandon Sanderson at the top of his game.

In Oathbringer, the third volume of the New York Times bestselling Stormlight Archive, humanity faces a new Desolation with the return of the Voidbringers, a foe with numbers as great as their thirst for vengeance.

Dalinar Kholin’s Alethi armies won a fleeting victory at a terrible cost: The enemy Parshendi summoned the violent Everstorm, which now sweeps the world with destruction, and in its passing awakens the once peaceful and subservient parshmen to the horror of their millennia-long enslavement by humans. While on a desperate flight to warn his family of the threat, Kaladin Stormblessed must come to grips with the fact that the newly kindled anger of the parshmen may be wholly justified.

Nestled in the mountains high above the storms, in the tower city of Urithiru, Shallan Davar investigates the wonders of the ancient stronghold of the Knights Radiant and unearths dark secrets lurking in its depths. And Dalinar realizes that his holy mission to unite his homeland of Alethkar was too narrow in scope. Unless all the nations of Roshar can put aside Dalinar’s blood-soaked past and stand together—and unless Dalinar himself can confront that past—even the restoration of the Knights Radiant will not prevent the end of civilization.
