Best SFF Books 2017 - The Guardian Kirkus Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of 2017 The Verge Recommended Fantasy for 2017 Locus 2017 Recommended Reading List This first volume of a new Eternal Sky trilogy takes readers over the dangerous mountain passes of the Steles of the Sky and south, into the Lotus Kingdoms.

The Gage, a brass automaton created by a long-dead wizard of Messaline around the core of a human being, works as a mercenary. He carries a message from the most powerful sorcerer of Messaline to the Rajni of the Lotus Kingdom. With him is the Dead Man, a bitter survivor of the bodyguard of the deposed Uthman Caliphate, protecting the message and the Gage. They are friends, of a peculiar sort.

They are walking into a dynastic war between the rulers of the shattered bits of a once great Empire.

Bear noodles around that trope like a jazz master and takes the story to some interesting places . . . --Locus This is a promising beginning indeed for an epic . . . and it will no doubt be a magnificent journey. --Booklist A panoramic drama that grabs and grips from Page 1 . . . vivid, absorbing, and thrilling. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Clever and beautifully written. --Elitist Book Reviews A thoughtful, richly complex, humane work eloquently told and elegantly constructed. --Fantasy Literature Enchanting. --The Illustrated Page A beautifully written story, truly epic in scope. --Lynn's Book Blog Praise for the Eternal Sky trilogy Subtle . . . crisp. --RT Book Reviews Top Pick for Range of Ghosts A vivid world. --Publishers Weekly on Range of Ghosts A rousing, artful adventure. --Asimov's Science Fiction on Shattered Pillars Astonishing. --Booklist on Shattered Pillars Bear delivers the thematic complexity, deft worldbuilding, and compelling storytelling we've come to expect in this concluding volume of the Eternal Sky trilogy, set in a world inspired by 13th-century Asia and The Arabian Nights. --Locus on Steles of the Sky Dense, gripping, and also entertaining, full of emotion, adventure, loss, and the possibility of hope. --Tor.com on Steles of the Sky
