The Ragged Man: Book Four of the Twilight Reign

Tom Lloyd, Pyr, $16.00 trade paper (548p) ISBN 9781616142063
The furious and costly battle for the Land progresses in the ongoing Twilight Reign series. King Emin continues to chip away at the massive forces Kastan Syrax throws at him, even as he puzzles at how to defeat the Land's nearly indestructible champion. Count Vesna, who has been imbued with the Aspect of the God of War, finds himself fighting Lord Isak's war without the backing of his Duke, his followers, or even his beloved Tila. Meanwhile, the shadowy presence of the Azaer continues to grow. Lloyd pushes the confrontation between good and evil towards its impending climax through a violent haze of continual battle as well as subtle, almost maddeningly obscure hints of the transformation set to take place in the Land. Though at times confusing, fans of the series will enjoy the penultimate installment. (Aug.)
