An ancient weapon has completely destroyed the city of Windwir. From many miles away, Rudolfo, Lord of the Nine Forest Houses, sees the horrifying column of smoke rising. Nearer to the Desolation, a young apprentice is the only survivor of the city - Nebios sat waiting for his father outside the walls and was transformed as he watched everyone he knew die in an instant. And within sight of Windwir sits Sethbert, the Overseer of the Entrolusian City States, gloating in triumph. At his side is Lady Jin Li Tam - her father's pawn in the game of statecraft, but destined to become her own Queen on the board. Soon all the Kingdoms of the Named Lands will be at one another's throats.

Review:

Praise for "Lamentation"

"This is the golden age of fantasy, with a dozen masters doing their best work. Then along comes Ken Scholes, with his amazing clarity, power, and invention, and shows us all how it's done. No more ponderous plotting - Scholes barely gives us time to breathe. Yet he creates vivid characters, a world thick with detail, and wonders we've never seen before. I wish my first novel had been this good. I wish all five volumes of this series were already published so I could read them now."-- Orson Scott Card

"Ken Scholes is a hot new voice to watch for on the interesting frontier between science fiction and fantasy. He has a keen eye for action and a keen ear for the sounds of the human heart. Grab on now, because he's going places."--Harry Turtledove

"As intricate as a Whymer maze, Ken Scholes' "Lamentation" will keep the reader up until the wee hours, winding through this splendid labyrinth. Bravo!"--Dennis L. McKiernan, bestselling author of the Mithgar series

"Ken Scholes's "Lamentation" is an iconic SF story cloaked in fantasy, drawing raw material from classics such as "A Canticle for Liebowitz" and "Earth Abides," but forging something new, with colorful characters, compelling scenes, and unfolding miracles."--Kevin J. Anderson, bestselling co-author of "Sandworms of Dune"

"Ken Scholes' "Lamentation" is a whale of a first novel, set in a world where technological magic has come and gone, and come again, where organized religion has attempted to recover and restore lost knowledge, if with a certain amount of censorship, where no one is quite what they seem, and where parental ambitions for offspring are filled with deep love and sacrifices, alongwith double double-crosses, conflicting motives, and tragedy."--L.E. Modesitt, Jr.

"The tone of ["Lamentation"] is precise and just about exactly right: I was engaged from the opening page, stayed up late looking to finish it, and then begged Scholes to let me see the next book as soon as possible.... I'd describe it as intelligent epic fantasy done right and written with all of the flab removed. It's nothing like George Martin's first Song of Ice and Fire novel, except that like that book, it has the chance of standing as an important book in the evolution of the epic fantasy form, is a delight, and is a book that readers are very likely to take to heart. It's one of the best first fantasies I've read in some time." --Jonathan Strahan
