Despite the existence of those 2 other threads I feel it's important to say again that Bakker is an amazing writer, The Darkness That Comes Before is the best debut I've ever read and the Warrior-Prophet is even better.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did Eldanuumea!

And saintjon, I will be on the lookout for the American pub. of Warrior-Prophet.

What drew me to it was the dark elegance of the slipcover, monochromatic greys with calligraphic text in the background. I almost never buy new HC's straight off the bookstore shelf, but this one had a magnetic pull on me.
Perhaps it was the sffworld vibe tugging at me from the back cover......LOL
