Welcome to the realm of the Instrumentalities of the evening, the place imps, demons, and darkish gods rule within the areas surrounding upstart humanity. on the edges of the area stand partitions of ice which push slowly ahead to reclaim the land for the evening. And on the world's heart, within the Holy Land the place nice religions have been born, are the Wells of Ihrain, the resource of the best magics. over the past century the Patriarchs of the West have demanded crusades to assert the Wells from the Pramans, the fans of the Written. Now an uneasy truce extends among the Pramans and the West, expecting a spark to begin the clash anew.
Then, on a project within the Holy Land, the younger Praman warrior Else is attacked by way of a creature of the Dark-in impression, a minor god. Too ignorant to grasp that he can by no means be triumphant over any such factor, he fights it and wins, and in so doing, units the terrors of the evening opposed to him.
As a present for his luck, Else is distributed as a undercover agent to the center of the Patriarchy to direct their realization clear of extra ventures into the Holy Lands. Dogged by means of hidden enemies and faithless allies, Else witnesses mindless butchery and mind-blowing acts of religion as he penetrates to the very middle of the Patriarchy and rides along their armies in a brand new campaign opposed to his personal humans. however the evening rides with him, too, sending of its once-human brokers from the a ways north to assassinate him.
Submerged in his position, he starts off to doubt his religion, his state, even his kinfolk. As his venture careens uncontrolled, he faces unanswerable questions about his destiny. it really is acknowledged that God will be aware of his personal, yet can person who has slain gods ever be aware of forgiveness?
In The Tyranny of the Night, Glen cook dinner introduces a brand new fable epic for the ages.
