The third in the fast-and-furious fantasy adventure The Legends of the AElfar: the worlds of the dark elves and the dwarves collide in what Malazan Empire calls 'Tolkien with a dash of Gemmell and a sprinkling of George R.R. Martin'.There are four races: the Elves, the Dwarves and the Humans and the AElfar.The other three all know the AElfar to be dark, relentless warriors, set on conquest; they have been deadly enemies since time immemorial. But are things about to change?The young alfar triplets Sisaroth, Tirigon and Firusha have been banished to the deadly underground realm of Phondrason, two of them exiled for a murder they did not commit, the third determined to stay with them, to help them survive this terrifying place full of monsters. Then Sisaroth meets a dwarf, Tungdil, who has been locked up in the Dark Abyss (Tungdil will be well-known to readers of the Dwarves series!) - and their unexpected relationship will change the fate of the alfar and the dwarves - for ever.Dark Paths is the third book in bestselling author Markus Heitz's Legends of the Alfar series.
About the Author
Markus Heitz studied history and German language and literature at university before turning to writing. His debut novel Schatten uber Ulldart (the first in a series of epic fantasy novels) won the Deutscher Phantastik Preis (German Fantasy Award) in 2003, and was followed by his bestselling Dwarves and the tie-in Aelfar series, which have made him one of Germany's - and Europe's - most successful fantasy authors. He currently lives in Zweibrucken, Germany.
A welcome return to the world of Markus Heitz's Dwarves series * Dominish * There is adventure, fighting, death, one truly gruesome act and a people going to war. I enjoyed this book and I want more about the AElfar. Because at the end, stuff is going down * Books for Life * The prose is sharp, the action sequences bloody and all in this has been a real joy to read. Throw into the mix some cracking double-dealing, some political machinations and all in this series has been a pure joy from start to finish and definitely one I'd recommend to other fantasy fans * Falcata Times * A Tolkienesque fantasy adventure novel needs a solid villain for the readers to loathe, and in Markus Heitz's Righteous Fury, we find a quite impressive one . . . If your bookshelf is already home to Tolkien, Martin, and company, Righteous Fury will find a comfortable spot to fit in * Booklist on Righteous Fury * Driven by unrelenting action, [the book] springs to life through the vivid, vigorous writing * Kirkus on the Legends of the Alfar * Tolkien with a dash of Gemmell and a sprinkling of George R.R. Martin * Malazan Empire on Markus Heitz * Heitz keeps on delivering . . . I would recommend Righteous Fury to everyone looking for exciting Tolkien-inspired fantasy * Upcoming4me on Righteous Fury *
