The world grows colder with each passing year, the longer winters and everdeepening snows awakening ancient fears within the Degnan Packstead: fears of invasion by armed and desperate nomads, attack by the witchlike and mysterious Silth, able to kill with their minds alone, and of the Grauken, that desperate time when intellect gives way to buried cannibalistic instinct, when meth feeds upon meth.

For Marika, a young pup loyal to pack and family, times are dark indeed, for against these foes, the Packstead cannot prevail. But stirring within Marika is a power unmatched in all the world, a legendary power that may not just save her world, but allow her to grasp the stars themselves…

As Marika’s power grows, she begins to change her world, embracing new technologies and ever darker magics, seizing control of Silth and barbarians alike, gathering the packsteads together under her command. But the world grows ever colder. Will Marika save her dying sphere, or will she be the one to destroy it utterly?

From Glen Cook, author of the Black Company and Dread Empire novels, comes Darkwar, collecting for the first time the stunning science fantasy epic that originally appeared as Doomstalker, Warlock, and Ceremony.

“Glen Cook... single-handedly changed the field... something a lot of people didn’t notice, and maybe still don’t. He brought the story down to a human level... Reading his stuff was like reading Vietnam War fiction on Peyote.”
— Steven Erikson, author of Gardens of the Moon and Deadhouse Gates
