Kevin J Anderson is one of our most prolific and ever-visible authors - the latest press blurb from his UK publisher, Orbit, tells us that he has over 16 million books in print in 29 languages worldwide. With his various series, tie-ins and franchise books this is not surprising. Anderson has chosen wisely and always delivered solid and dependable fiction and this trend looks set to continue with The Edge of the World, the author's first journey into epic fantasy, now released in mass market paperback by Orbit.
"After generations of friction, the leaders of two lands meet in the holy city of Ishalem to bring an end to the bloodshed and to divide the world between them. Sadly, this new spirit of fellowship is shortlived. A single tragic accident destroys, in minutes, the peace that took years to build. The world is once more cast into the fires of war - and this time the flames may burn until nothing remains. From the highest lord to the lowest servant, no man or woman will be unchanged by the conflict. But while war rages across both continents, a great quest will defy storms and sea serpents to venture beyond the horizon, where no maps exist - to search for a land out of legend. It is a perilous undertaking, but there will always be the impetuous, the brave and the mad who are willing to leave their homes to explore the unknown. Even unto the edge of the world ..."From release/information:
