The Psalms of Isaak

Ken Scholes’s debut novel, Lamentation, was an event in fantasy. Heralded as a “mesmerizing debut novel” by Publishers Weekly, and a “vividly imagined SF-fantasy hybrid set in a distant, postapocalyptic future” by Booklist, the Psalms of Isaak series has gained many fans. The first book is followed by Canticle, Antiphon, Requiem, and Hymn. “I wish my first novel had been this good. I wish all five volumes of this series were already published so I could read them now.” (Orson Scott Card).
