Praised by fans and critics worldwide, R. Scott Bakker has become one of the most celebrated new voices in fantasy literature. Now he returns with the long awaited White Luck Warrior—the chilling second book in the epic Aspect- Emperor series.
As Anasûrimbor Kellhus and his Great Ordeal march ever farther into the wastes of the Ancient North, Esmenet finds herself at war with not only the Gods, but also her own family. Achamian, meanwhile, leads his own ragtag expedition to the legendary ruins of Sauglish, and to a truth he can scarcely survive, let alone comprehend. Into this tumult walks the White Luck Warrior, assassin and messiah both.

A fine example of the new anti-epic fiction at its best.... R. Scott Bakker leads us down that slippery slope towards accepting amoral behaviour and forces us to see how easy it would be for any of us to be swept up by events into becoming willing participants in terrible actions. This mirror onto our world is extremely difficult to look into, but is so well written we are held spellbound for its entirety.... One of the more brilliant pieces of writing that you're liable to read for a long time. - Seattle Post-Intelligencer
“As cerebral and intricate as the first book in the Aspect-Emperor trilogy, The Judging Eye ... A must for readers rapt by the overall conception.” - Booklist
