The Darkness That Comes Before ~~ R. Scott Bakker


Description
The Darkness That Comes Before by R. Scott Bakker

Strikingly original in its conception, ambitious in scope, with characters engrossingly and vividly drawn, the first book in R. Scott Bakker's Prince of Nothing series creates a remarkable world from whole cloth its language and classes of people, its cities, religions, mysteries, taboos, and rituals the kind of all-embracing universe Tolkien and Herbert created unforgettably in the epic fantasies "The Lord of the Rings" and "Dune."
It's a world scarred by an apocalyptic past, evoking a time both 2,000 years past and 2,000 years into the future, as untold thousands gather for a crusade. Among them, two men and two women are ensnared by a mysterious traveler, Anasurimbor Kellhus part warrior, part philosopher, part sorcerous, charismatic presence from lands long thought dead. "The Darkness That Comes Before" is a history of this great holy war, and like all histories, the survivors write its conclusion."
