“Ken Scholes creates vivid characters, a world thick with detail, and wonders we've never seen before.” —Orson Scott Card

The Psalms of Isaak series take place on an Earth so far in the distant future that our time is not even a memory; a world where magick is commonplace and great areas of the planet are impassable wastes. But human nature hasn't changed through the ages: War and faith and love still move princes and nations. Soon all the Kingdoms of the Named Lands will be at each others' throats, as alliances are challenged and hidden plots are uncovered.

Lamentation — An ancient weapon has completely destroyed the city of Windwir. From many miles away, Rudolfo, Lord of the Nine Forest Houses, sees the horrifying column of smoke rising. He knows that war is coming to the Named Lands.

Canticle — As the feast honoring General Rudolfo’s first-born son begins, the doors of the hall fly open and invisible assassins attack. All of Rudolfo's noble guests are slain, including Hanric, the Marsh Queen's Shadow. And on the Keeper's Gate, a strange figure appears, with a message for Petronus, the Hidden Pope.

Antiphon — The ancient past is not dead. The hand of the Wizard Kings still reaches out to challenge the Androfrancine Order, to control the magick and technology that they sought to understand and claim for their own.

Requiem — Who is the Crimson Empress, and what does her conquest of the Named Lands really mean? Who holds the keys to the Moon Wizard's Tower? Hidden truths reveal even deeper truths, and nothing is as it seemed to be.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.



Praise for this book

Praise for The Psalms of Isaak:

"Scholes's mesmerizing debut novel, the first installment of the five-volume Psalms of Isaak saga, launches him into the stratosphere of contemporary epic fantasy...Readers will be intrigued by the subtle, adept world-building and ensemble cast of brilliantly complex characters, but it's Scholes's pure storytelling prowess that makes this tale of devastation and retribution so unforgettable."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Lamentation

"All the ingredients of a first-rate epic--magic, arcane science, and a handful of compelling protagonists. By the end of the novel, the reader is caring deeply about the characters and looking forward with burning anticipation to the sequels."--Booklist

"This is the golden age of fantasy, with a dozen masters doing their best work. Then along comes Ken Scholes, with his amazing clarity, power, and invention, and shows us all how it's done. Vivid characters, a world thick with detail, and wonders we've never seen before. I wish my first novel had been this good. I wish all five volumes of this series were already published so I could read them now." --Orson Scott Card

“The sequel to Scholes’s stellar debut, 2008’s Lamentation, ingeniously fuses epic fantasy and postapocalyptic science fiction…. Abounding in prophecy, myth and mystery, this grand-scale saga is a towering storytelling tour de force.”—Publishers Weekly,starred review on Canticle

“Not only is Scholes a capable world-builder, he ably handles the tough task of keeping the series momentum going, intensifying the mystery so deftly that even if readers can’t foresee where the story’s going, it’s clear that the author knows exactly what he’s doing. When does book three come out, already?” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review on Canticle
