Reviews

Praise for The Dark Defiles

"A finale that displays all the purposefully hard edges and grim magnificence that made the first two volumes stand out."--Kirkus Reviews

"Morgan brings his mammoth A Land Fit for Heroes fantasy trilogy to a rousing conclusion. . . . Expect surprises and suspense, along with the usual derring-do and entertaining characters."--Booklist

Praise for Richard K. Morgan and his acclaimed series, A Land Fit for Heroes

"Bold, brutal, and making no compromises--Richard K. Morgan doesn't so much twist the clichés of fantasy as take an axe to them. Then set fire to them."--Joe Abercrombie

"Morgan has taken traditional sword and sorcery tropes and given them a hard, contemporary kick. The anitithesis of the cosy fairytale, this one is for big boys."--The Times (London)

"A crisp stylist who demonstrates equal facility with action scenes and angst."--The New York Times Book Review

"A full-immersion experience, uncompromising and bleakly magnificent."--Kirkus Reviews
