The darkness that comes before by R. Scott Bakker( Book )

42 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 994 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bakker's utterly foreign world, Earwa, is as complex as that of Tolkien. He creates an extraordinary cast of nationalities and races involved in an enormous holy war set off by an unseen prophet, Maithanet. He casually drops for half the story an increasingly important character, Anasûrimbor Kellhus (aka "the Prince of Nothing"), who finally returns without a breath of exposition. The amiable and wise sorcerer spy Drusas Achamian binds the myriad narrative threads together

With Proyas and Saubon as his Exalt-Generals, he leads a holy war deep into the wastes of the Ancient North, intent on destroying Golgotterath and preventing the Second Apocalypse. His wife and consort Esmenet, meanwhile, remains in Momemn, where she struggles not only to rule his vast empire, but their murderous children as well. And Achamian, who lives as a Wizard in embittered exile, undertakes a mad quest to uncover the origins of the Dunyain.

Unholy consult by R. Scott Bakker( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A score of years after he first walked into the histories of men, Anasurimbor Kellhus rules all the three seas, the first true Aspect-Emperor in a thousand years. The Men of the Great Ordeal have been abandoned by Aspect-Emperor Anasurimbor Kellhus and the formerly epic crusade has devolved into a group of gluttonous cannibals, mere shells of the Believer-Kings of the Three Seas. When Exalt-General Proyas, with the Imperial-Prince Kayutas at his side, attempts to control the lost Men and continue their march to Golgotterath, it rapidly becomes clear that the lost Lord-and-Profit is not so easily shaken from the mission, and the all-consuming desire for Sranc flesh is not as simplistic as the Men may have thought. Tensions arise when the flesh of the Sranc runs out. When Sorweel, Believer-King of Sakarpus, and Serwa, daughter of the Aspect-Emperor, join the Great Ordeal they discover that the Shortest Path is not always the most obvious, or the safest. Souls, morals, and relationships are called into question when no one can be trusted, and the price for their sins is greater than they imagined. The ... final novel in R. Scott Bakker's 'Aspect-Emperor' series, set in a vivid world of myth, war and sorcery"--Publisher's description

SCIENCE FICTION. Book Two of "The Prince of Nothing" finds the Holy War continuing its inexorable march southward. But the suspicion begins to dawn that the real threat comes not from the infidel but from within...Steering souls through the subtleties of word and expression, Kellhus strives to extend his dominion over the Men of the Tusk. The sorcerer Achamian and his lover, Esmenet, submit entirely, only to have their faith - and their love - tested in unimaginable ways. Meanwhile, the warrior Cnaiur falls ever deeper into madness. Convinced that Kellhus will betray their pact to murder his father, Cnaiur turns to the agents of the Second Apocalypse and strikes an infernal bargain. The Holy War stands on a knife edge. If all is not to be lost, the great powers of the world will have to choose between their most desperate desires and the end of the world. Between hatred and hope. Between Anasurimbor Kellhus and the second apocalypse
