Voyage of the Shadowmoon by Sean Mcmullen

(0 reviews)
7.99 USD
Sean McMullen, one of Australia's leading genre writers, took America by storm with his sweeping Greatwinter Trilogy, a post-apocalyptic science fiction tour de force that won over critics and readers alike.

Now McMullen delivers Voyage of the Shadowmoon, a fantasy epic of daunting skill and scope. The Shadowmoon is a small, unobtrusive wooden schooner whose passengers and crew are much more than they seem: Ferran, the Shadowmoon's lusty captain who dreams of power; Roval, the warrior-sorcerer; Velander and Terikel, priestesses of a nearly extinct sect; and the chivalrous vampire Laron, who has been trapped in a fourteen-year-old body for seven hundred years.

They sail the coast, gathering useful information, passing as simple traders. But when they witness the awful power of Silverdeath, an uncontrollable doomsday weapon of awesome destructiveness, they realize they must act. But every single king, emperor, and despot covets Silverdeath's power. It will take all of their wits and more than a little luck if they hope to prevent one of these power-hungry fools from destroying the world. Their only advantage? The Shadowmoon.

While it seems to be little more that a small trading vessel--too small for battle, too fat for speed—it is actually one of the most sophisticated vessels in the world, one that allows them to travel to places where no others would dare. They can only hope it will be enough to save them all before Silverdeath rains destruction across their entire world.

Praise for this book

Praise for Sean McMullen and his Greatwinter Trilogy

"Decidedly original, sometimes whimsical, and captivating, this is a genuine tour de force." --Booklist (starred review) on Souls in the Great Machine

"I don't know how many years of practice Sean McMullen has had, but he writes like his own expert. . . . A great machine in concept, and a great book in the reading. Highly recommended."--San Diego Union-Tribune on Souls in the Great Machine

"The tale features labyrinthine politics, a large cast of engaging characters, and many well-depicted scenes of aerial warfare. The author's inventive use of several oddball technologies is particularly noteworthy, and veteran SF readers may well be reminded of the best work of L. Sprague de Camp."--Publishers Weekly on The Miocene Arrow

"Boisterously entertaining . . . the complexity of the book's plot is marvelous; like soap opera and Shakespeare, it is filled with fights, romance, wenching, revenge, greed, duplicity, and misunderstandings--a cacophony of schemery and slapstick that never fails to entertain."—The Denver Post on Eyes of the Calculor
