Book Description

Feb. 3 2004 The Winter of the World
In the great battle which had returned control of Morvannec, the legendary city, to mankind, Elof the Smith had saved Kara, his love, from the immortal Power which ruled her. But in the seven years since, the Smith had grown fearful that Kara, herself no mortal, will one day leave him. In his fear, Elof makes the mistake of drawing on his own uncanny powers to bind Kara closer to him; he only succeeds in driving her away.

Haunted, guilt-ridden, Elof can do nothing but follow his love eastwards, across the Seas of Sunrise, towards the city of Kerys in which Kermoven of Kerbryhaine's people had originated. In the myth-filled lands of the East, where the Powers of the Ice contemplate the total extinction of life, Elof must face his past, his future and his final destiny.

5.0 out of 5 stars A write worthy of his hero, and vice-versa. March 3 2000
By Ms. G.M. Kruseman - Published on
Whatever you do, do not read the ending first. I found the wait almost unbearable, but very much worth it. And if you possibly can, read parts I and II first! I first read the book at a gulp, in one night, without breathing, gripped by the story as if by an iron vice. I read it again next day, more slowly, sitting down now and then in the middle of the page to enjoy the landscape. Our hero from the parts I and II has grown more powerful and therefore more tormented, and quite grim. His destiny - what a destiny! - he bears without even thinking of whining, only exploding a little now and then. We never really knew him, before. He is great. And the story is worthy of him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Triology I ever read April 18 1997
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the final chapter is the series (Winter of
The World), and what a way to finish. On the front cover of the book, there is a quote that
"the pages turn as if by magic". I have to agree.
You just can't leave this book down. M.S. Rohan
carries you to another time, another world, a place full of magic, honour, pain and joy.
If you haven't read all three books, then stop reading this and start reading them.
5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible piece of work Oct. 15 2010
By Brian - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is one of the few non-derivative fantasy works created since the Lord of the Rings. I've read the trilogy more than once, and have always been struck by its originality. While nothing matches the depth and authority of Tolkien, this comes close and with a more modern voice. I imagine this to be an undiscovered treasure for most fantasy fans.

This book was in excellent condition for being a used paperback edition. The quickness in receiving this item was great. As well as the book being wonderful. I have the previous books to this series and was happy to finally have the final book. Thanks
