And on a day near the end of the world, Yama must finally acknowledge the power he neither anticipated nor desires

The Ancients of Days. He said, "We had them at drill most of the day. You should see how they keep in step!" Pandaras looked up at his master, affecting concern. Chapter One THE WHISPERERS PANDARAS ENTERED THE shadowy arena of the Basilica just as one half of the defense force charged at the other. Tamora led the point of the attacking wedge, screaming fearsomely. Yama ran up and down behind the double rank of the defending line and shouted at his thralls to stand firm. The two sides met with a rattle of padded staves against round arm shields.

I can't believe there are no reviews of this book. Its great and the kindle is cheap! A great read. Here is a review I posted for the final book in the series.
It's hard to describe this book and the other two in the series. They were a combination of Lord of the rings, the New Testament story of Jesus,and 1001 Arabian nights. The author must have an imagination as wide as the sky to have created this series. It is a story of 1000 stories. Well maybe not 1000 but certainly a lot.One after another the stories unfold so that if you find one a little boring it soon and new one begins. Is the age old tale of the boy who saves the world. Seriously I cannot imagine how the author came up with so many ideas, such a vividly imagined kaleidoscope of a world and hundreds of different bloodlines/people. I don't write a lot of reviews. I read the first in the series which to me reads like one long book. Often the series will have a different feel from book to book as the author maturity.to me this felt like a unified work ended up reading all three one after the other, something I normally would not do. The series of books is highly recommended and I intend to read everything Mr. McAuley has written.
