Sure to become an epic fantasy classic, Helen Loweâ€™s
magnificent Wall of Night series is big, ambitious, and
gorgeously drawnâ€”a story of bravery, treachery, and
cataclysm in a richly imagined world.
The Gathering of the Lost is the second of four
books set in a fantastic imperiled realm garrisoned by nine
great Houses and protected from the terrible Darkswarm by
the towering mountain range that gives the series its name.
Supremely literate, brilliantly imagined and executed
fantasy in the vein of Brandon Sanderson, Guy Gavriel Kay,
and Barbara Hambly, The Gathering of the Lost is
populated by a grand cast of unforgettable characters, some
still holding to the beleaguered Wall, others scattered in
their quest for the fabled Heir of Night, who vanished from
their midst five years earlier.
