Overview

Grass, has helped redefine speculative fiction. Award winner, national bestseller, and one of the genre's most respected and acclaimed talents, she has transcended the boundaries of science fiction and fantasy with her widespread success. Available for the first time in one volume, this is the long out-of-print trilogy that launched her remarkable career: King's Blood Four, Necromancer Nine, and Wizard's Eleven.

 

In the lands of the True Game, your lifelong identity emerges as you play-Prince or Sorcerer, Demon or Doyen. Raising the dead is the least of the Necromancer's Talents-he is a wild card who threatens the True Game itself. A giant stalks the mountains. Shadowpeople gather by the light of the moon. Bonedancers raise up armies of the dead. And the Wizard's Eleven sleep trapped in their dreams. Players, take your places. The final Game begins now...

    If you read any book, read THIS book!

    I am a long-time dedicated fantasy reader, always looking for the next great book, AND THIS IS IT. The True Game is one you can't afford to miss. Case in point: I haven't even finished reading it, and I'm already recommending it to everyone I know - and trying to think of more people to tell. With this book, Tepper has not given us a regurgitated standard fantasy world and its usual characters, but has instead created a whole new genre by turning the 'same-old' inside out. Want a book to make you think? Want a book that will turn your world upside down? THIS IS IT.
