9780857665553: Mirror Empire (Worldbreaker Saga)
Review:

STARRED REVIEW: "This is a hugely ambitious work, bloody and violent, with interestingly gender-flipped politics and a host of factions to keep straight, as points of view switch often. Although it is a challenging read, the strong narrative thread in this new series from Hurley (God's War) pulls readers through the imaginative tangle of multiple worlds and histories colliding." - Library Journal STARRED REVIEW: "Hurley (Rapture) reuses old tropes to excellent effect, interweaving them with original elements to create a world that will fascinate and delight her established fans and appeal to newcomers. Readers will blaze through this opening installment and eagerly await the promised sequel." - Publishers Weekly "The Mirror Empire is a fresh, vigorous, and gripping entrant into the epic fantasy genre, able to stand toe-to-toe with any of the heavyweight series out there. I cannot recommend this novel highly enough." - SF Revu "THE MIRROR EMPIRE is epic in every sense of the word. Hurley has built a world - no, worlds - in which cosmology and magic, history and religion, politics and prejudice all play crucial roles. Prepare yourself for sentient plants, rifts in the fabric of reality, and remarkable powers that wax and wane with the stars themselves. Forget all about tentative, conventional fantasy; there's so much great material in here that Hurley needs more than one universe in order to fit it all in." Brian Staveley, author of The Emperor's Blades "Taking epic fantasy down challenging and original paths. Thoughtful and thought-provoking with every twist and turn." - Juliet E. McKenna "For me it did all the things a fantasy should do -- holding our own societies up to the light by reflecting off worlds that are very different. Add in a magic system where the users are only powerful some of the time, and semi sentient vegetation that is possibly more of a threat than the magic users, and I happily sank into this book with a satisfied sigh." - Francis Knight "Bold, merciless, and wildly inventive, Kameron Hurley's THE MIRROR EMPIRE begins an epic tale of worlds at war that will linger long in readers' imaginations. If you're looking for original and challenging fantasy, this is definitely the series for you." - Courtney Schafer, author of The Whitefire Crossing "With vividly inventive world building and a fast-paced plot, The Mirror Empire opens a smart, brutal, and ambitious epic fantasy series. Book two is already on my must-read list." - Kate Elliott, author of the Spiritwalker series "There's a powerful yet elegant brutality in The Mirror Empire that serves notice to traditional epic fantasy: move over, make way, an intoxicating new blend of storytelling has arrived. These are pages that will command your attention." - Bradley Beaulieu, author of The Lays of Anuskaya trilogy "The Mirror Empire is the most original fantasy I've read in a long time, set in a world full of new ideas, expanding the horizons of the genre. A complex and intricate book full of elegant ideas and finely-drawn characters." - Adrian Tchaikovsky, author of The Shadows of the Apt series"Kameron Hurley is ferociously imaginative - with the emphasis on the ferocious. She writes novels that are smart, dark, visceral and wonderfully, hectically entertaining." - Lauren Beukes, author of Zoo City and The Shining Girls "Kameron Hurley's writing is the most exciting thing I've seen on the genre page - What Hurley's writing has (and it's something not one in a dozen genre practitioners seems able to generate) is passion. It doesn't hurt that there's also a rare freshness to the material, and a heady dash of high octane noir worked into the mix." - Richard K. Morgan, author of The Steel Remains and the Takeshi Kovacs novels " - where some writers might focus on high-tech weapons or explosive battles in space, Hurley brings things down to a personal level, recalling more the toughminded realism of Chris Moriarty's Spin State - " - New York Review of Science Fiction "God's War was part slow burn, part explosive action - in the end the novel was utterly compelling." - Tor.com "Hurley's world-building is phenomenal - (she) smoothly handles tricky themes such as race, class, religion, and gender without sacrificing action." - Publishers Weekly "The ostensibly ground-breaking, jaw-dropping ultra-progressive newness of God's War is important because it isn't important. God's War is remarkable not because it pushes the boundaries of science fiction, but because it is a novel in which those boundaries are already gone." - Jared Shurin, Pornokitsch

Descripción Watkins Media, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 197 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. On the eve of a recurring catastrophic event known to extinguish nations and reshape continents, a troubled orphan evades death and slavery to uncover her own bloody past - while a world goes to war with itself. In the frozen kingdom of Saiduan, invaders from another realm are decimating whole cities, leaving behind nothing but ash and ruin. As the dark star of the cataclysm rises, an illegitimate ruler is tasked with holding together a country fractured by civil war, a precocious young fighter is asked to betray his family and a half-Dhai general must choose between the eradication of her father s people or loyalty to her alien Empress. Through tense alliances and devastating betrayal, the Dhai and their allies attempt to hold against a seemingly unstoppable force as enemy nations prepare for a coming together of worlds as old as the universe itself. In the end, one world will rise - and many will perish. Nº de ref. de la librería AA99780857665553
