The Wide World’s End

James Enge. Pyr, $18 trade paper (375p) ISBN 978-1-61614-907-9
In the third and final swashbuckling tale in the Tournament of Shadows series (following Wrath-Bearing Tree), set in a world where the dying sun makes many things dangerous and unpredictable, the Wardlands come under threat from some menace in the far north. The Graith of Guardians predictably send Morlock Ambrosius and his trusty dwarf companion, Deor, to investigate. Together with Morlock’s sister, Ambrosia Viviana, the friends travel to the edge of the world to find out exactly who or what is causing the death of the sun and try to stop it. Meanwhile, Morlock’s wife, Aloê, is elected to investigate who killed their friend Earno and why. Adventure, intrigue and straight-up exuberant sword and sorcery remain hallmarks of this enjoyable series. Agent: Michael Kabongo, Onyxhawke Agency. (Feb.)
