Herald of the Storm Summary

Welcome to Steelhaven.....

An unbalanced veteran, a disillusioned assassin, a hapless apprentice, a drunken swindler, a desperate thief...during times of crisis, you don't get to choose your heroes.

Under the reign of King Cael the Uniter, this vast cityport on the southern coast has for years been a symbol of strength, maintaining an uneasy peace throughout the Free States. But now a long shadow hangs over the city, in the form of the dread Elharim warlord, Amon Tugha. When his herald infiltrates the city, looking to exploit its dangerous criminal underworld, and a terrible dark magick that has long been buried once again begins to rise, it could be the beginning of the end.

    Blood oaths are sworn and broken in a city facing total annihilation as Richard Ford's epic fantasy series, which opened with Herald Of The Storm, continues. Heroes must rise... or the city will fall. The King is dead. His daughter, untested and alone, now wears the Steel Crown. And a vast horde is steadily carving a bloody road south, hell-bent on razing Steelhaven to the ground. Before the city faces the terror that approaches, it must crush the danger already lurking within its walls.
