The second 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'.The AElfar are the enemies of the dwarves and control the darkest magics, but even their power has its limits. To save their own people, they must enter into an unwinnable war. Sinthoras and Caphalor, two very different AElfar, watch as their plans come to fruition: the hidden land - the home of the dwarves - has fallen to their army of trolls, barbarians and AElfar, and now the lands of the hated elves are within their grasp. But the alliance begins to crumble as greed triumphs over obedience. And Sinthoras and Caphalor face another threat: an enemy from the empire of the AElfar, thought to be defeated, has resurfaced, and while their best warriors fight in the hidden land, the AElfar homeland lies almost defenceless . . .This edition contains bonus material!Devastating Hate is the sequel to Righteous Fury and the second book in bestselling author Markus Heitz The 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 on the Legends of the Alfar * 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 on the Legends of the Alfar * 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 on the Legends of the Alfar * 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. * Upcoming4me on the Legends of the Alfar *
