Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

In Taux, the city of cursed stone, a new dark power stalks the dreams of the population with bloody footprints. Even among the celebrations of the Festival of a Thousand Blossoms, the hardy folk of the Black Gate must find a way to defeat this lurking menace before it consumes them all. A Knight in the Silk Purse blends the shared tales of twelve of fantasy’s greatest modern storytellers into an epic weave of intrigue, murder, sorcery, death, and retribution like nothing else found on the shelves today.

I loved this collection of stories. It reminds me so very much of the Thieves World stories of long ago. Please make more!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An impressive set of interweaving stories. 28 septembre 2014
Par Nicholas Payton - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
This is a fun read. The stories are generally dark and exciting with an abundance of magic and myth, a wide variety of not quite human characters and lots of action.

Most of the stories in this collection stand decently on their own, but they are tied together by characters, items and events in elaborate fashion. If that sounds confusing it defiantly can be, especially since the stories, most of which cover several days themselves, all occur over the course of a seven day festival, and as such are not told in anything approaching chronological order. But if you keep track of the days of the festival (which are stated clearly and often) along with a few key characters it is not hard to follow. The end result in an absolutely amazing work of coordination. I have not seen another collection where a dozen authors share not only a world but protagonists, villains and events while managing to tell separate stories, especially in such a tight amount of world time. I look forward to more.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not your normal anthology, but one story told by many authors. 4 octobre 2014
Par David Eggerschwiler - Publié sur
Format: Broché
A Knight in the Silk Purse is unlike any other fantasy anthology I've read so far. It is more like a single story told by different authors.

A Knight in the Silk Purse takes place during the Festival of Flowers, a seven day celebration in the city of Taux. The different stories are told from the viewpoint of different characters and they are not told in chronological order, so that you would meet characters again and learn what they had been doing before or after the last time you encountered them.

The different authors managed to find a distinct voice which is present in all the stories and so it feels like a well rounded work.

In addition, the story that is told is full of adventure, daring, drama and even a bit of humor.

I can highly recommend this book to anyone interested in fantastic books.
