New Release March 2013: Shattered Pillars (Eternal Sky #2) by Elizabeth Bear


The Shattered Pillars is the second book of Bear’s The Eternal Sky trilogy and the sequel to Range of Ghosts. Set in a world drawn from our own great Asian Steppes, this saga of magic, politics and war sets Re-Temur, the exiled heir to the great Khagan and his friend Sarmarkar, a Wizard of Tsarepheth, against dark forces determined to conquer all the great Empires along the Celedon Road.

Elizabeth Bear is an astonishing writer, whose prose draws you into strange and wonderful worlds, and makes you care deeply about the people and the stories she tells. The world of The Eternal Sky is broadly and deeply created—her award-nominated novella, "Bone and Jewel Creatures" is also set there.

I loved Range of Ghosts, the first book of Elizabeth Bear's Eternal Sky fantasy series. It should not be a surprise then that Shattered Pillars is one of my most anticipated books of 2013.

Releasing: March 19, 2013 by Tor Books

    1. Alex, the first book of this series was part of my 2012 Top 10 list of favorite books, under the Fantasy category. It was SO good. As to the cover? So far the covers for BOTH books are gorgeous! I'm really looking forward to this. :D

  2. What gorgeous cover art! I'd really like to try Ms. Bear's works. I have wanted to for a while now. Where does the novella fall in the series? Maybe that would be a good piece to try..

    1. Christine, the cover art for this series is outstanding so far. I'm loving it! And, I just think if you're going to try Ms. Bear's works this fantasy series might be the one for you.

      As to the novella, I'm not sure where it falls in the series. I have it in my TBR but have not read it yet. I will read it before I begin Shattered Pillars though. :D

    1. Mariana, I thought you'd read A Companion to Wolves? You know I love Bear's work, so yeah... I recommend that you give her a shot.

      I love BOTH covers in this series so far. It's a trilogy worth having in your shelves. :D
