Series: Empire of Salt
The epic conclusion to the bestselling Empire of Salt series - Fans of Game of Thrones will be gripped by this bloodthirsty adventure Cities have been broken. Empires have fallen. And darkness is coming.

Success has drawn a cold gaze. A false king seeks dominion. His soldiers will bring desolation and despair to Darien. With treachery on all sides, the ancient capital looks set to fall.

Yet within the walls of that great city, a small team gathers. Tellius knows each one- a hunter, a gambler, a dead man, a wielder of threads - and the sword saint of Shiang. When Darien herself is threatened, Tellius will ask them to stand.

A city is worth more than the lives of those within. Darien's streets and courts and homes and taverns are a bonfire on the hill, a beacon of life and light in the world.

That is why they will die to save her.

Reviews for The Sword Saint (#3 Empire of Salt)

A must read. Iggulden is clearly having fun pitching his various heroes and villains into bloody combat * SciFiNow * An old-school Fantasy novel, strong on character, in which readers can immerse themselves * SFF World * Enough machinations, conspiracies and controversies to rival Game of Thrones -- ***** Reader Review Strong characters and plotting, combined with world-building skills on a par with Brandon Sanderson's - what's not to like? VERY highly recommended! -- ***** Reader Review High fantasy tinged with dark magic, an East-meets-West clash of cultures, and an epic adventure -- ***** Reader Review
