Overview


It has ended. It begins again. In Kavelin, Lady Nepanthe's new life with the wizard Varthlokkur is disturbed by visions of her lost son, while King Bragi Ragnarson and Michael Trebilcock scheme to help the exiled Princess Mist re-usurp her throne — under their thumb. In Shinsan, a pig-farmer's son takes command of Eastern Army, while Lord Kuo faces plots in his council and a suicide attack of two million Matayangans on his border. But in the desert beyond the Dread Empire, a young victim of the Great War becomes the Deliverer of an eons-forgotten god, chosen to lead the legions of the dead. And the power of his vengeance will make a world's schemes as petty as dust, blown wild in the horror that rides the east wind.
This volume marks the beginning of the end. Reap the East Wind is the first step on the road to the long-delayed final chapter of Glen Cook's legendary Dread Empire series.

    Why the low ratings

    Can people actually rate the book and say why its good or bad instead of just complaining that the free friday book isnt what they wanted? If thats the case go buy the book you want and rate those ones instead

    This is a part of a wonderful series of fantasy fiction books. The characters are well developed, the story lines move along without unnecessary excruitiating drama. All in all - great reads!

    Thanks Barnes and Noble for another great choice. I appreciate that over time you select books of all genres to offer to us for free. Much appreciate the help with my budget!

    Good Fantasy

    This is a good story using a lot of imagination. The author kept the action going very well. For a free book, there were very few typos. There was a bit of obscure description, but in general, the characters were interesting and the story very creative. Some readers should remember that you cannot expect a lot from something free.

    Barnes and noble has millions of readers who enjoy a variety of genres. Maybe scifi isn,,t your thing so dont get the book but before you complain remember that there are many others out there who enjoy scifi and they r entitled to a free book once in a while also. I have seen many genres in the free friday collection ibcluding murder mysteries. It doesn,t hurt to be adventurous and try a different gere once in a while. Who knows you might like it.

    This is for reviews not FF complaints

    It's not fair to the author or to science fantasy readers to use this forum to complain about the FF selection. If you need to whine go do it on the BN facebook page, blogs, or customer service. If you don't want the free book go buy one or borrow one. Remember the public library? Duh. And remember, the most effective way to get changes is to vote with your money....get a Kindle.

    Great read

    I really enjoyed this book! Very entertaining and I got a little lost but otherwise very good.I have tried many of the free friday offerings many that were not my preferred genres ,however Ive read quite a few that were suprisingly great! My only complaint here is that this isnt the first in the series. The odds of me going back to purchase the previous books because of this is nil now, even tho I enjoy this author. Doing this just turned me off totally. However I agree with most folks on here,please read the book then write your review ,this isnt a place to complain about FREE books! There a place on the forums for your ridiculous criticisms.

    I would like to see what the people thought bout this book after actually reading it. if you don't like the free selection don't get it, stop complaining about it!! I have tried all different genres of books since ff started and have found new authors that i like. that's what's nice about it. It doesn't cost anything!!!! also for the person who said shades of grey for free, really ?? obviously marketing is not your thing, if they offered the books that are hot right now they wouldn't sell a whole lot now would they? and bn is like everyone else working to make money. just be happy you get a free book every week and it may turn you onto to something new!!

    Seriously?

    Its free quit complaining people. Either you like it or you don't....if you didn't like it, there is no reason to whine about it because you didn't come out of your own pocket to get it. If you did like it, that's great! A book you enjoyed and didn't even spend a penny on. I'm not saying you can't have your own opinion, i'm just saying it'sa bit silly to get upsetas is you wasted loads of money on it because you didn't.

    An okay read if you enjoy fantasy battle strategy. The names and

    An okay read if you enjoy fantasy battle strategy. The names and cast of characters (and their extra abilities) are confusing for those not already acquainted with Cook's fantasy world. The majority of the book revolved around strategies for accumulating power. Cook managed to embue the characters with enough personality to make me care -- at least mildly -- what happened to them; which was the only reason I finished the book. The ending seemed a little flat, but not outrageous. I would recommend the book to people who like fantasy and like to read about power struggles.

    Interesting Read.

    This is not my usual genre of reading material. Found it interesting to read. Easy to follow in the beginning, until I got to all the flashbacks. Probably would be easier to follow if I had read the earlier books in the series. Probably a well written book of it's type. Appreciate the opportunity to try out this type of book.

    Interesting story but..

    Lots of difficult character names and lots of characters introduced all at once with not a whole lot of background on them so you didn't know what to expect. I found the book difficult to follow and there were times where plot lines were just dropped into the story out of nowhere with no prior groundwork having been laid. I read quite a bit of fantasy but I found myself having a hard time generating any empathy for any of the characters and the story line just neve really captured my imagination

    Has anyone actually read this book?

    Is it really bad, or do you all just assume it will be bad. I read the comments to find out, but i know less now than before.

    Shut up

    If you dont want a free book then dont get it. Really its not a difficult situation be happy that you are able to get free books. If you dont want free friday books type in 0.00 for other options. And if you are so happy with a kindle go on Amazon. This book does sound confusing though

    I'm about 3/4 of the way through and things are starting to tie together. Fortunately, it's a short book!
