The Empty Throne, Fiction, Thriller / suspense, Science fiction, Fantasy

The extraordinary conclusion to The Empty Throne series, by the award-winning author of the Low Town novels.

For centuries beyond counting, humanity has served the Others, god-like Eternals who rule from their cloud-capped mountain-city, building a civilization of unimagined beauty and unchecked viciousness.

But all that is about to change. Bas Alyates, grizzled general of a thousand battles, has assembled a vast army with which to contend with the might of Those Above. Eudokia, Machiavellian matriarch and the power behind the Empty Throne, travels to the Roost, nominally to play peacemaker - but in fact to inspire the human population toward revolt. Deep in the dark byways of the mountain's lower tiers, the urchin Pyre leads a band of fanatical revolutionaries in acts of terrorism against their inhuman oppressors. Against them, Calla, handmaiden of the Eternals' king, fights desperately to stave off the rising tide of violence which threatens to destroy her beloved city.

The story begun in THOSE ABOVE comes to a stunning conclusion in this unforgettable battle for the hearts and minds of the human race, making THE EMPTY THRONE the most exciting epic fantasies of recent times.

Praise for Those Below: The Empty Throne Book 2

  • Machiavellian clockwork glory. - Mark Lawrence on THOSE ABOVE.

  • Those looking for well-createed and beautifully created fantasy, which also happen to be both darkly comic and devastatingly grim, will find themselves swiftly addicted. - Starburst on THOSE ABOVE

  • Dark fantasy with a decidedly military bent, THOSE ABOVE is the perfect opener for Daniel Polansky's career beyond Low Town. With his unmistakeable voice and his highly original new world, he draws the reader slowly in until it's impossible to put the book down and escape back to reality. A brilliant start to what is sure to be one of the fantasy epics of all time, THOSE ABOVE is the work of an author at the top of his game and brings with it the promise of a lot more to come. - Reader Dad on THOSE ABOVE

  • THOSE ABOVE is I, Claudius by way of Tolkien and filtered through Chandler. That is to say, really damn good. - Pornokitsch on THOSE ABOVE
