黑色佣兵团

格伦·库克 / Tor Books / 1992-03-15 /
《黑色佣兵团》是“黑色佣兵团”系列的首部小说,其中包含了七个中篇。这些中篇最早发表在1982年的《奇幻与科幻杂志》上,后来才结集成册出版。(我们很容易便可发现,《黑色佣兵团》的七大章节是相对完整的,每章均重新开了个头,而且拥有自己的结尾。) 所谓“黑色佣兵团”,其本身取材于欧洲文艺复兴时代盛极一时的德国和意大利佣兵团队,在书中乃是世界上硕果仅存的几家自由佣兵团之一,以信守雇约、手段严厉著称。它原由黑人组成,故得名“黑色佣兵团”,然则在小说开始的年代,由于颠沛流离,多方补充新手,早就各方人士鱼龙混杂了。“黑色佣兵团”系列以整个团队为主角,叙述了他们在四百年历史中大约四十年的精彩。从《黑色佣兵团》的北上助魔,到《钢铁残梦》的全军覆没,再到《恶水沉睡》的故土寻根,佣兵团一次又一次地在黑白正邪之间走钢丝,一次又一次地遭遇重创,读者熟悉的角色一个接一个地死去,但整个团队顽强地在那个残酷的世界里存活了下来。

Over Your Dead Body

Dan Wells / Tor Books / 2016-05-03 /
New York Times bestselling author Dan Wells continues his popular John Wayne Cleaver series in Over Your Dead Body. John and Brooke are on their own, hitchhiking from town to town as they hunt the last of the Withered through the midwest--but the Withered are hunting them back, and the FBI is close behind. With each new town, each new truck stop, each new highway, they get closer to a vicious killer who defies every principle of profiling and prediction John knows how to use, and meanwhile Brooke's fractured psyche teeters on the edge of oblivion, overwhelmed by the hundreds of thousands of dead personalities sharing her mind. She flips in and out of lucidity, manifesting new names and thoughts and memories every day, until at last the one personality pops up that John never expected and has no idea how to deal with. The last of Nobody's victims, trapped forever in the body of his last remaining friend. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied. **Review "[T]he mundane struggles of their nomadic existence make the tale much richer than a simple monster vs. monster story." ---Publishers Weekly About the Author DAN WELLS lives in North Salt Lake, Utah, with his wife, Dawn, and their five children. He is author of three previous novels about John Wayne Cleaver, The Hollow City, and the popular Partials Sequence of young adult books.

The Crippled God

Steven Erikson / Tor Books / 2011-02-15 /
SUMMARY:Savaged by the K'Chain Nah'Ruk, the Bonehunters march for Kolanse, where waits an unknown fate. Tormented by questions, the army totters on the edge of mutiny, but Adjunct Tavore will not relent. One final act remains, if it is in her power, if she can hold her army together, if the shaky allegiances she has forged can survive all that is to come. A woman with no gifts of magic, deemed plain, unprepossessing, displaying nothing to instill loyalty or confidence, Tavore Paran of House Paran means to challenge the gods -- if her own troops don't kill her first.Awaiting Tavore and her allies are the Forkrul Assail, the final arbiters of humanity. Drawing upon an alien power terrible in its magnitude, they seek to cleanse the world, to annihilate every human, every civilization, in order to begin anew. They welcome the coming conflagration of slaughter, for it shall be of their own devising, and it pleases them to know that, in the midst of the enemies gathering against them, there shall be betrayal. In the realm of Kurald Galain, home to the long lost city of Kharkanas, a mass of refugees stand upon the First Shore. Commanded by Yedan Derryg, the Watch, they await the breaching of Lightfall, and the coming of the Tiste Liosan. This is a war they cannot win, and they will die in the name of an empty city and a queen with no subjects. Elsewhere, the three Elder Gods, Kilmandaros, Errastas and Sechul Lath, work to shatter the chains binding Korabas, the Otataral Dragon, and release her from her eternal prison. Once freed, she will be a force of utter devastation, and against her no mortal can stand. At the Gates of Starvald Demelain, the Azath House sealing the portal is dying. Soon will come the Eleint, and once more, there will be dragons in the world. And so, in a far away land and beneath indifferent skies, the final cataclysmic chapter in the extraordinary 'Malazan Book of the Fallen' begins.
