Epic fantasy legend and author of number one New York Times best-selling series The Wheel of Time, Robert Jordan's never-before published novel, Warrior of the Altaii.
Draw near and listen, or else time is at an end.
The watering holes of the Plain are drying up, the fearsome fanghorn grow more numerous, and bad omens abound. Wulfgar, a leader of the Altaii people, must contend with twin queens, warlords, prophets and magic in hopes of protecting his people and securing their future. Elspeth, a visitor from another world, holds the answers, but first Wulfgar must learn to ask the right questions.
But what if the knowledge that saves the Altaii will also destroy them?

The Altaii are plains dwellers, and they want to take the walled city, ruled by evil Queens. the leader of the Altaii is Lord Wulfgar, who is a brilliant leader, a brilliant fighter, a true legend in the making. We dont see him grow, or evolve at all. He is what he is at page one, to page 352. In fact none of the character evolve. The enemies are led by women, the only gender in the book that can use magic. And one wonders if they are witches, who delight in dark magic. They are brutal, immensely powerful and violent sadistic torturers who exploit their power any way they see fit. So one might ink they deserve what they get. There is one mysterious character, Elspeth, who arrives out of the blue mid-story, from a "foreign world". To be honest, i dreaded her reveal, i read fantasy to escape the horrors of the 21st century, not relish in them, but fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on what the reader is seeking here...) we don't hear about the 21st century. In fact, we hear nothing further about Elspeth and where she came from at all. Aaah yes, this is Mr Jordan's first book....
So yeah, but nah. The combat is great, the magic is great. The characters Are interesting, the world is well written. Character development is non existent. There is no humour. Its by Robert Jordan, and it was his first book.
So yeah. But nah.
This world, unlike the Wheel of Time, is focused on Wulfgar, the Altaii warrior.
The main character is the embodiment of the warrior-fierce, proud, imbued with inner strength and fortitude and a simple but binding code of honour.
I could have happily and easily read several more instalments had there been more written.
One of my favourite authors of all time, Robert Jordan will be forever remembered and read...

characters are good and solid ideas of fighting with great
descripton especially when fighting much larger
parties. I liked this book because the characters and
plots were wel thought out.
