The Drenai stronghold had fallen. Now blood-hungry Nadir hordes spread desolation and despair across all the lands... ...even tiny Gothir, where slavers seized a young girl while the villagers looked the other way--all but the peasant boy Kiall. His unlikely rescue attempt would lead across the savage steppes and on through the Halls of Hell. The youth would face ferocious beasts, deadly warriors, and demons of the dark; he would emerge a man--or not emerge at all. But Kiall would not face these dangers alone. Heroes out of legend joined his quest: Chareos the Blademaster, Beltzer the Axeman, and the bowmen Finn and Maggrig. And one among their company hid a secret that could free the world of Nadir domination. That one was the Nadir Bane, the hope of the Drenai. That one was the Earl of Bronze. Thus did a search for a stolen slave girl become a quest that would shake the very world.

This is my second favorite book. (see Centaur Isle above for the first)It starts out as a simple "rescue the damsel in distress" plot and picks up from there. A naive, young, and headstrong peasant enlists the aid of a legendary warrior, Chareos the Blademaster to help rescue a beautiful peasant girl from slavers. Before you know it, all four of the legendary "Heroes of Bel-azar" have joined in the foolish quest. It is a very realistic take on an old fantasy plot. The author takes on the subjects of fame, honor, love, and glory. There are laughs, shocks, and a twist or two that will keep you interested throughout the entire book. Many of the cultures will be similar to real cultures. (like the Mongols, the Chinese, and Western European) Not for children, I'm afraid. The "realism" comes from very some very mature attitudes and opinions (involving coarse language) as well as some mature situations and mature relationships. It is pretty gritty at times. But that is what makes it so good. All in all, it is one of the best fantasy novels I have ever read.
