The Assassin King

Haydons lyrical sixth installment in her sweeping saga . . . While deftly managing a large cast of intriguing characters in a story thats both grand and intimate but never predictable, Haydon moves all the pieces into place for the next volume.--"Publishers Weekly." The Assassin King opens at winter's end with the arrival by sea of a mysterious hunter, a man of ancient race and purpose, who endlessly chants the names of the pantheon of demons that are his intended victims, as well as one other: Ysk, the original name of the Brother, now known as Achmed, the Assassin King of Ylorc. At the same moment of this portentous arrival, two gatherings of great import are taking place. The first is a convocation of dragons, who gather in a primeval forest glade--the site of the horrific ending of Llauron, one of the last of their kind. They mourn not only his irrevocable death, but the loss of the lore and control over the Earth itself that it represents. The second gathering is a council of war held in the depths of the keep of Haguefort: Ashe and Rhapsody, rulers of the alliance that protects the Middle Continent; Gwydion, the new Duke of Navarne; Anborn, the Lord Marshall; Achmed, the King of Ylorc, and Grunthor, his Sergeant-Major. Each brings news that form the pieces of a great puzzle. And as each piece is added it becomes quite clear: War is coming, the likes of which the world has never known. Cataclysms, both large and small, await in this sixth volume of the USA Today bestselling fantasy series, The Symphony of Ages. A twisting, fast-moving tale, The Assassin King promises endless surprisesmany of which lead to pain. Review: At the start of Haydon's lyrical sixth installment in her sweeping saga of musical magic and ancient prophecies (after 2004's Elegy for a Lost Star ), the dragons of the world gather to mourn the loss of one of their oldest and greatest....Ashe and Rhapsody, the Lord and Lady of Cymrian, also convene with their allies to prepare for the war looming between deadly powers that could tear the world apart....While deftly managing a large cast of intriguing characters in a story that's both grand and intimate but never predictable, Haydon moves all the pieces into place for the next volume. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The Assassin King The sixth installment of Haydon's Symphony of Ages series carries the popular saga into new territory, revisiting familiar characters and introducing new ones. The author's skill at character portrayal and world-building make this an excellent choice for most fantasy collections and essential for libraries owning the previous series titles. -- Library Journal on The Assassin King One of the finest high fantasy debuts in years. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Rhapsody The second book of Haydon's epic high-fantasy trilogy is as strong and compelling as its predecessor. The action is exhilarating; and sometimes broad, sometimes wry humor leavens the story's horror. As in high fantasy at its best, the sense of foreboding is palpable, the world building is convincing and consistent, the evildoers are truly wicked, and the battles are ferocious. Enthusiastic readers will be left eagerly awaiting the trilogy's conclusion in Destiny, -- Booklist on Prophecy Haydon's third book culminates her powerful fantasysaga with adventure, treachery, mystery and romance. Destiny is an exciting read that will pique new readers and delight fans of Ms. Haydon's first two books. Haydon continues to wield a strong voice in the world of fantasy. Her superbly rendered characters incite us to share their triumphs and sorrows, even as her lyrical prose casts its wondrous invitation to visit her world. -- Romantic Times Gold Medal Review Haydon achieves high levels in characterization, world building through well-chosen detail, folkloric and musical expertise, and warmth of spirit. Let us be thankful that this rhapsody isn't over and, indeed, promises to linger with spirit for at least two more volumes. -- Booklist on Requiem for the Sun * Unlike most middle books
