Overview

Supreme Commander Lord Tanaros was once human. But he chose darkness and immortality when his wife betrayed him with his king. He killed them both, and fled the realms of Men and now cares nothing for their fates.

A thousand years passed. His only allegiance is to his master, the dark god Satoris, who gave the gift of Life to the race of Men. Satoris, who rebelled against his elder brother God Haomane who had demanded that gift be taken away. Their fight cracked the very world in two; the name of Satoris became the word for evil throughout all the races, while the legend of Tanaros is the seminal tale of treachery.

And yet not all tales told are true.

A final prophecy has begun to unfold, and the races are uniting in their quest to rid the world of Satoris. The elder gods and goddesses, stranded on the other side of the world, send dreams to spur all to destroy Satoris and Tanaros, but those loyal to their god know a different side of the story and try to defend their citadel of Darkhaven, where Satoris sits in sorrow, controlling his own dominion, seeking neither victory nor vengeance.

Satoris's followers capture the beautiful Elvish princess Cerelinde, and without her the Allies cannot fulfill the prophecy. All who support Satoris clamor for her death-but Satoris refuses to act like the monster that he is made out to be, for he recognizes in Cerelinde a spark of the love that he once bore for his fellow gods.

She is a great danger to Satoris—and a greater danger for Tanaros and all that he holds dear. For she reminds him that not all women need be false... and that though he may be immune to death, his heart is still very much mortal.

Strong storytelling with evocative, compelling, and unforgettable characters, Godslayer is the thrilling conclusion to the events begun in Banewreaker, a haunting tale of love and loss that ultimately asks the question: If all that is considered good considers you evil, are you?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“A grand epic...showcasing Carey’s intimate development of deeply wounded, sometimes deeply flawed, yet utterly dignified and sympathetic characters, with some of the best dragons in all fantasy literature.”—Booklist on Banewreaker

“A memorable beginning to what should be another strong series.”—Publishers Weekly on Banewreaker

“Carey creates a masterful interplay of subjective views...Whereas Tolkien kept Sauron mainly on the sidelines as the embodiment of Ancient Evil, less a main actor than a smoldering threat, Carey restores him and his lieutenant’s to the stature they had Milton.”—Locus on Banewreaker

“An intriguing fantasy world with interesting characters and more than a touch or romance.”—Chronicle (UK) on Banewreaker

Publishers Weekly
Lord Satoris Banewreaker has the best of intentions when he opposes Haomane, his brother god, but his actions sunder the world of Urulat. Carey's complex Sundering fantasy series, of which this follows 2004's Banewreaker, challenges the reader more than her well-received Kushiel trilogy (Kushiel's Dart, etc.). The stately pace, the plethora of names and sentient species (of which Man is only one) and the difficult main characters-cold, dignified gods-will put off some fans of the earlier, more accessible series. In addition, the author owes too obvious a debt to Tolkien: hobbitlike folk bear powerful, mystical objects analogous to Frodo's ring, while the ethereally beautiful Cerelinde could have been lifted bodily from Loth Lorien. On the other hand, a figure like Tanaros, who retains his honor by slaying his wife and king for betraying him, shows Carey can still create strong, original characters, and the climax, when gods and men fall in battle like ninepins, not only nicely ties everything up but is quite moving as well. Agent, Jane Dystel. (Aug.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
War between the exiled god Satoris and his sibling gods has finally broken out as Satoris has captured the elven woman Cerelinde, who is instrumental in keeping the peace among those allied against the dark god. Leading Satoris's troops is the immortal general Tanaros, who finds himself falling in love with his lord's gentle captive while she seeks to undermine her captors' violent plans. The author of the "Kushiel's Legacy" trilogy continues her latest series with this sequel to Banewreaker, telling a story that turns the standard views of good and evil on their heads. A good choice for fantasy collections and particularly where Carey's books have a following. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Romantic Times BookClub Magazine
"A fascinating exploration...of those who claim to be good and those who have accepted the label evil."

    This story had so many twists and turns that you never guess what is actually going to happen at the end. Let me tell you it is probably not what you expect. Once again Carey has written a gripping saga that you just cant put down. As soon as I finished I checked to see if the next one was out yet. Unfortunatly it's not : '

    The plot is exciting and memorable.

    Long ago the world of Urulat was created by the Seven Shapers who made the races in their own images. The eldest brother Haomane did not like what his brother Satoris did with his creation, giving them free will, the ability to think for themselves and the urge to strive so they won¿t become stagnant and complacent. He ordered his sibling to withdraw his gift and when he refused the Shapers went to war Sundering the world as a by product of battle........................ Haomane and his siblings live together not seen by their creations while Satoris walks the earth and lives in the fortress he created, the underground realm of Darkhaven. Satoris¿s ally, the one thousand year old immortal Supreme Commander Lord Tanaros kidnaps the ellyon (elven) Princess Cerelinde and takes her back to Darkhaven. This stops Haomane¿s prophecy from being fulfilled which would end in Satoris¿ death. He could permanently destroy any chance of the prophecy being fulfilled by killing the princess but that is something he refuses to do. As Haomane¿s allies make ready for war Satoris decides that his allies will also fight rather than endure a siege in Darkhaven. Both sides know that whoever wins, the undoing of the Sundering will take place....................... There are many different sentient species in the world of Urulat and with the Sundering, each race wars against the other just as the Shapers do. Haomane is never seen and uses lies and misdirection to paint his brother as the enemy that must be destroyed. Satoris who was not responsible for the Sundering is an enigmatic and mysterious being who got cast in the role of villain due to his brother¿s deception. There is a cast of hundreds and it takes careful reading to figure who is the ally of what Shaper. The Godslayer storyline is about the races getting ready for war and Jacqueline Carey demonstrates her talent as fantasist by making the plot exciting and memorable................. Harriet Klausner
