Praise for Guy Gavriel Kay "[Kay] stunningly weaves Arthurian legends into the fluid mix of Celtic, Nordic, and Teutonic, creating a grand fantasy that sweeps readers into a heroic struggle that the author makes all the more memorable because of the tributes he pays to past masters…. Kay is undoubtedly one of the Canadian masters of high fantasy." —Jeffrey Canton “Kay is a genius.” —Brandon Sanderson “As captivating as any classic of the fantasy field.” —Maclean’s “Can only be compared to Tolkien’s masterpiece. This is a series to cherish and reread.” —The Star-Phoenix “The essence of high fantasy.” —Locus

»Am Fluss der Sterne« ist nach »Im Schatten des Himmels« der zweite epische Fantasy-Roman von Guy Gavriel Kay, der in Kitai spielt, dem magischen Reich der Mitte. Einst galt Xi'an als schönste Stadt der zivilisierten Welt, der Kaiserhof als Hort des Luxus und der Kultur. Doch seit Kitai in weiten Teilen an die Barbaren aus dem Norden gefallen ist, herrscht Angst auf den Straßen, und das Heulen der Wölfe hallt durch verfallene Gemäuer. Nur einem Mann scheint es möglich, das Reich der Mitte wieder zu neuer Größe zu führen: Ren Daiyan, Heerführer, ehemaliger Geächteter, Bogenschütze von fast mythischer Gestalt. An seiner Seite: die geheimnisvolle Lin Shan, vielleicht die klügste, auf jeden Fall aber die faszinierendste Frau ihrer Zeit ... »Das Werk eines Meisters auf der Höhe seiner Kunst!« The Washington Post

Guy Gavriel Kay ist der Großmeister der historischen Fantasy. Mit ›Im Schatten des Himmels‹ hat er ein bildgewaltiges und fesselndes Epos geschrieben, das in einem phantastischen Reich der Mitte spielt. Kay beschwört das China der Tang-Dynastie herauf und erzählt eine grandiose Fantasy-Geschichte voller Intrigen, Abenteuer und Magie. »250 sardianische Pferde, Geschöpfe von unvergleichlicher Schönheit und Seltenheit!« Als der Kriegermönch und Gelehrte Shen Tai für seine Heldentaten von der Jadeprinzessin des Nachbarreiches belohnt wird, macht ihn das überaus großzügige und gefährliche Geschenk auf einen Schlag zu einem der mächtigsten Männer im Reich der Mitte. Die Herrschenden von Kitai – eine Fantasy-Version des Chinas der Tang-Dynastie – wollen jedoch keinen neuen Konkurrenten neben sich dulden und senden Mörder aus, um Shen Tai aus dem Weg zu räumen. Nach einem ersten Attentatsversuch beschließt Shen Tai, in die Hauptstadt zu reisen, um die Pferde dem Kaiser zum Geschenk zu machen. Begleitet wird er von der jungen Kriegerin Wen Song, die geschworen hat, ihn mit ihrem Leben zu beschützen, und dem berühmten Dichter und Trunkenbold Sima Zian, der seinem jungen Freund mit Rat und Tat zur Seite steht. Die Gefährten erwartet eine abenteuerliche und gefährliche Reise, auf der sich das Schicksal des Reiches entscheiden wird. Mit seiner unvergleichlichen Charakterentwicklung und der großartigen Handlung wird Kays neuestes Werk Liebhaber von historischen Romanen ebenso begeistern wie Fantasy-Fans.

The bestselling author of the groundbreaking novels The Last Light of the Sun, Sailing to Sarantium, and Lord of Emperors, Guy Gavriel Kay is back with a new book, set in a world inspired by the conflicts and dramas of Renaissance Europe. Against this tumultuous backdrop the lives of men and women unfold on the borderlands—where empires and faiths collide. From the small coastal town of Senjan, notorious for its pirates, a young woman sets out to find vengeance for her lost family. That same spring, from the wealthy city-state of Seressa, famous for its canals and lagoon, come two very different people: a young artist traveling to the dangerous east to paint the grand khalif at his request—and possibly to do more—and a fiercely intelligent, angry woman, posing as a doctor’s wife, but sent by Seressa as a spy. The trading ship that carries them is commanded by the accomplished younger son of a merchant family, ambivalent about the life he’s been born to live. And farther east a boy trains to become a soldier in the elite infantry of the khalif—to win glory in the war everyone knows is coming. As these lives entwine, their fates—and those of many others—will hang in the balance, when the khalif sends out his massive army to take the great fortress that is the gateway to the western world...
