Description of this Book

Hugo Award-winning author Elizabeth Bear returns the epic fantasy world of the Lotus Kingdoms with The Red-Stained Wings, the sequel to The Stone in the Skull, taking the Gage into desertlands under a deadly sky to answer the riddle of the Stone in the Skull. The Gage and the Dead Man brought a message from the greatest wizard of Messaline to the ruling queen of Sarathai, one of the Lotus Kingdoms. But the message was a riddle, and the Lotus Kingdoms are at war. Elizabeth Bear created her secondary world of the Eternal Sky in her highly praised novel The Range of Ghosts and its sequels. She continued it the first book of the Lotus Kingdoms, The Stone in the Skull.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Praise for The Stone in the Skull Elizabeth Bear sweeps the reader into a world of ravishing detail. --Huffington Post Amazing worldbuilding, gloriously precise prose, and excellent pacing. --Tor.com The Eternal Sky trilogy is one of the great fantasy epics of the last decade, and Bear triumphantly returns to that setting. --Library Journal Glorious and dramatic. --Publishers Weekly, starred review The plot hews closely to the whole band-of-rogues-assemble-to-fight-stronger-band-of-foes . . . Bear noodles around that trope like a jazz master and takes the story to some interesting places . . . --Locus This is a promising beginning indeed for an epic . . . and it will no doubt be a magnificent journey. --Booklist A panoramic drama that grabs and grips from Page 1 . . . vivid, absorbing, and thrilling. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Clever and beautifully written. --Elitist Book Reviews A thoughtful, richly complex, humane work eloquently told and elegantly constructed. --Fantasy Literature Enchanting. --The Illustrated Page
