Elizabeth Bear concludes her award-winning epic fantasy trilogy, The Eternal Sky, with Steles of the Sky.

Re Temur, exiled heir to his grandfather's Khaganate, has finally raised his banner and declared himself at war with his usurping uncle. With his companions—the Wizard Samarkar, the Cho-tse Hrahima, and the silent monk Brother Hsiung—he must make his way to Dragon Lake to gather in his army of followers.

Temur has many enemies, and they are not idle. The sorcerer who leads the Nameless Assassins, whose malice has shattered the peace of all the empires of the Celedon Highway, has struck at Temur's uncle already. To the south, in the Rasan empire, a magical plague rages. To the east, the great city of Asmaracanda has burned, and the Uthman Caliph is deposed. And in the hidden ancient empire of Erem, Temur's son has been born, and a new moon has risen in the Eternal Sky.

Reviews

Praise for Steles of the Sky

“Wrapping up Bear's complex and beautifully rendered historical-fantasy trilogy.... [F]ully realized characters whose personalities and motivations arise from the dazzlingly detailed cultures and landscapes from which they derive.... It all adds up to an eminently satisfying conclusion. Considering the trilogy as a whole, the overused term masterpiece justifiably applies.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review on Steles of the Sky

“Bear's stellar conclusion to her Mongolian-flavored fantasy trilogy…. a rich contribution to epic fantasy's expanding borders of emotion and invention.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review on Steles of the Sky

“Bear concludes the epic begun in Range of Ghosts with her usual subversive flair.... The world of the Eternal Sky is a gorgeously fleshed-out one, and the characters without exception fascinating, sometimes maddening, and complex.” —Booklist on Steles of the Sky
