Throwback Thursday #16 - Edge of the World

This is a great feature that Melissa at My words and pictures has been doing for a while and I wanted to jump on board! There are plenty of books out there I desperately want...

But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on my shelves?
The Edge of the World - Kevin J Anderson
After generations of friction, the leaders of two lands meet in the holy city of Ishalem to bring an end to the bloodshed and to divide the world between them. Sadly, this new spirit of fellowship is short-lived. A single tragic accident destroys, in minutes, the peace that took years to build. The world is once more cast into the fires of war - and this time the flames may burn until nothing remains. From the highest lord to the lowest servant, no man or woman will be unchanged by the conflict. But while war rages across both continents, a great quest will defy storms and sea serpents to venture beyond the horizon, where no maps exist - to search for a land out of legend. It is a perilous undertaking, but there will always be the impetuous, the brave and the mad who are willing to leave their homes to explore the unknown. Even unto the edge of the world ...
I picked this up last year wanting some high seas fantasy. It looks like a lot of fun and I love a bit of politics. I haven't really been reading much fantasy for a while, but I want change that and expand some of my recent reading. Maybe I'll start with this! :)
What do you have, that you haven't read yet? :)


  1. That does sound good.

    I have loads and loads of books that I really want to read and never seem to find the time for!

  2. Never read a high seas fantasy :D

  3. Oh sounds good. Can't wait to see what you think of it!

  4. Oh I love this cover! And I love the sounds of an high seas fantasy adventure. Sounds like a great read. You need to read this one for us. :) Thanks for joining in!
