Overview

In the four previous books of his epic fantasy series Winds of the Forelands, David Coe has woven a complex tapestry of magic and politics, courage and betrayal, love and hate. Now, he brings the many strands of this enthralling series together in a climactic novel that will thrill readers of epic magical fantasy. For years the magical Qirsi people who live among the Eandi courts of the Forelands have conspired, weakening alliances among the realms. The renegades are led by a mysterious Weaver named Dusaan with powers that allow him to appear in the dreams of his followers and to bind the magic of many Qirsi into a single weapon more potent than any the Eandi have faced in a thousand years. Now, his planning begins to bear fruit. He reveals himself to friend and foe alike, knowing that none can stand against him. Dusaan takes control of the Empire and begins his march toward war, enlisting those who serve him in other realms to join the battle, as the ranks of his army swell. King Kearney's armies are forced to battle Eandi invaders from Braedon. However, this battle is a diversion contrived by Dusaan to weaken the Eandi armies. Grinsa, another Weaver, fights for the king. Knowing that the renegades are the true enemy, he struggles to make his people recognize this before it's too late. At last, the two Weavers do battle, Dusaan leading his army of Qirsi sorcerers, Grinsa standing with an alliance of Eandi nobles and warriors. Whichever side wins will bear a heavy cost for victory.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Full of magic and intrigue, Weavers of War: Book Five of Winds of the Forelands, the final volume in David B. Coe's epic fantasy series, will keep fans turning the pages to the exciting climax. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
From the Publisher
"Full of magic and intrigue, Weavers of War: Book Five of Winds of the Forelands, the final volume in David B. Coe's epic fantasy series, will keep fans turning the pages to the exciting climax."

Publishers Weekly

"War and politics, love and magic, all drawn in detail against a vividly imagined feudal background. A complex and excellent book."

—David Drake, author of Lord of the Isles, on Rules of Ascension

"Turmoil and deception propel Coe's second entry in his Winds of the Forelands tetralogy, maintaining the momentum of its predecessor. The author deftly manages a multistrand plot full of political intrigue that never flags despite the wealth of engrossing detail. A large cast of characters both old and new enliven the sword and sorcery. Readers who go for good clean fantasy fun will eagerly await the next installment."

Publishers Weekly on Seeds of Betrayal

"Coe writes a wonderfully complex and engrossing tale, but what truly made this book for me was the richness and depth of the beautifully crafted characters. A good plot makes for a great read, but interweave that plot with rich, complex characters and you have a splendid book - and this is a splendid book. There is absolutely nothing superficial about Coe's writing - it is strong, complex, and emotionally very, very powerful."

—Sara Douglass, author of The Wayfarer Redemption, on Bonds of Vengeance

"One of the things that delights me most when reading fantasy is being shown new worlds—vivid, fascinating new places to explore, and find new adventures. In Rules of Ascension, David Coe gives us a world to remember, a world one can't help but want to know more about. I eagerly await other tales of the Forelands!"

—Ed Greenwood, author of The Band of Four saga

    Indescribable

    David Coe has shown himself, yet again, as a truly gifted writer. David weaves tales of love, betrayal, vengeance, and personal discovery much like the Weavers he writes of. This book is amazing! I could not put it down. I read 400 pages in ONE sitting. I could not put it down! This book was the closing of a spectacular series that will always be a rival for all Fantasy writers to come. I recommend this book, and all of Coe's books, for all Fantasy readers. You will NOT be disappointed!

    Stupendous fantasy

    In the Forelands, the Eandi have subjugated the Qirsi, a race of incredible magical powers though they are small in numbers. Their white skins and yellow eyes set them apart from the rest of humanity and though they hold positions in the courts and stations of the various realms they are answerable to the Eandi who are their overlords. Sick of the status quo, a movement has built up over the years in which the Qirsi led by Dusaan foment rebellion, unrest among various realms houses and clans.---------------- Dusaan is a Weaver a powerful mage who not only has every Qirsi power but can use the powers of the various other Qirsi, weaving them into weapons that could be used against the Eandi in the seven realms. Only one man can stop him the Weaver known as Grinsa but first he must find a way to prevent the various Eandi factions from fighting each other and join against the common enemy. Even then he doesn¿t know, even with the Qirsi who are loyal to the Eandi and willing to back him, if he has strength to defeat Dusaan.-------------- This is the fifth and final book in the Winds of the Forelands saga and it ties up all the loose ends, as enemies are revealed and allies come out in the open in a final confrontation. Grinsa is a complex character who makes difficult choices and stands by them, allying himself with Eandi and those Qirsi loyal to them because that he believes is the only way his race will gain equality. David B. Coe is a powerful storyteller and an excellent worldbuilder.--------------- Harriet Klausner
