In A VOW OF GLORY (Book #5 in the Sorcerer's Ring), Thor embarks with his Legion friends on an epic quest into the vast wilds of the Empire to try to find the ancient Destiny Sword and save the Ring. Thor’s friendships deepen, as they journey to new places, face unexpected monsters and fight side by side in unimaginable battle. They encounter exotic lands, creatures and peoples beyond which they could have ever imagined, each step of their journey fraught with increasing danger. They will have to summon all their skills if they are to survive as they follow the trail of the thieves, deeper and deeper into the Empire. Their quest will bring them all the way into the heart of the Underworld, one of the seven realms of hell, where the undead rule and fields are lined with bones. As Thor must summon his powers, more than ever, he struggles to understand the nature of who he is. Back in the Ring, Gwendolyn must lead half of King’s Court to the Western stronghold of Silesia, an ancient city perched on the edge of the Canyon that has stood for one thousand years. Silesia’s fortifications have allowed it to survive every attack throughout every century – but it has never been faced with an assault by a leader like Andronicus, by an army like his million men. Gwendolyn learns what it means to be queen as she takes on a leadership role, Srog, Kolk, Brom, Steffen, Kendrick and Godfrey by her side, preparing to defend the city for the massive war to come. Meanwhile, Gareth is descending deeper into madness, trying to fend off a coup that would have him assassinated in King’s Court, while Erec fights for his life to save his love, Alistair and the Duke’s city of Savaria as the downed shield enables the wild creatures to invade. And Godfrey, wallowing in drink, will have to decide if he is ready to cast off his past and become the man his family expects him to be. As they all fight for their lives and as things seem as if they can’t get any worse, the story ends with two shocking twists. Will Gwendolyn survive the assault? Will Thor survive the Empire? Will the Destiny Sword be found?

In AN OATH OF BROTHERS, Thorgrin and his brothers emerge from the land of the dead, more driven than ever to find Guwayne, and set sail across a hostile sea, leading them to places beyond their wildest dreams. As they come ever-closer to finding Guwayne, they also encounter obstacles unlike ever before, obstacles which will test them to their very limits, which will call on all their training and force them to stand together as one, as brothers.

Траг Крутогор, отважный таурен, с которым мы познакомились во второй книге трилогии «Warcraft: Тени во льдах», возвращается в мир живых… в обличье нежити. Гном-механик с талантом говорить глупости в самый неподходящий момент оказывается единственным, кто может утихомирить свирепого тролля. Сборник включает в себя четыре истории, наполненные приключениями, сражениями, драматическими событиями и юмором.
Прошли годы с тех пор, как талантливый двенадцатилетний Арамар Торн, никогда не расстающийся с блокнотом для рисования, в последний раз видел отца. Поэтому, когда капитан Грейдон Торн неожиданно возвращается и просит сына отправиться с ним в плавание, Араму кажется, что мир заиграл новыми красками. Оказавшись на борту «Волнохода», мальчик изо всех сил старается поладить с командой – особенно со вторым помощником капитана Макасой Флинтвилл, крутой девушкой, немногим старше Арамара, неохотно взявшей над ним шефство. Но едва Арам успевает освоиться в море, на их корабль нападают свирепые пираты, и жизнь мальчика вновь переворачивается с ног на голову. Пытаясь найти дорогу домой, Арам и Макаса встречают на своем пути множество существ, одинаково ужасных и удивительных. Чтобы лучше понять обитателей Азерота, Арам рисует их в своем блокноте и попутно находит самых невероятных друзей. Только вот путешествие затрудняет компас Грейдона, никогда не указывающий на север. И если этот компас не направляет Арама и Макасу домой, к безопасной жизни, какая же судьба ждет их в конце пути?
Иллидан Ярость Бури. Великий чародей. Великий воин. Великий предатель. Десять тысяч лет, проведенных в тюрьме, когда лишь ненависть и жажда мести позволяют сохранить рассудок… И позволяют ли? Долгожданная свобода. Новый мир, новая армия, новые планы. Еще более амбициозные и непонятные для всех прочих. Что это – жажда реванша или стремление к безграничной власти? И какова будет цена победы? Ведь все больше врагов стягивают кольцо вокруг владыки Запределья, а от союзников в любой момент можно ждать удара в спину. Слишком многие хотят видеть Иллидана в цепях… или в могиле!
В окутанном туманом прошлом, задолго до времен, описанных в первых летописях, существовал мир, зовущийся Азеротом. Всевозможные волшебные существа делили эти земли с племенами людей, и повсюду царил мир. Но однажды ужасные демоны Пылающего Легиона вместе со своим сеющим зло повелителем Саргерасом, темным богом магии хаоса, вторглись в Азерот. Под влиянием демонической Скверны, драконы, дворфы, эльфы, гоблины, люди и орки вступили в борьбу за власть над разрозненными королевствами. Стражи Тирисфаля – наделенные божественными силами защитники Азерота, которые на протяжении многих поколений ведут тайную войну против Пылающего Легиона. Одному из них, Медиву, с рождения было предрешено стать самым великим и могущественным членом своего благородного ордена. Но еще в юности тьма запятнала его душу, осквернив ее чистоту и обратив ко злу того, кто должен был сражаться на стороне добра. Борьба Медива со злом внутри себя стала судьбоносной для всего Азерота… и навеки изменила мир.
Хотя молодой вождь Тралл и покончил с проклятием демона, которое многие поколения оскверняло его народ, орки все еще пытаются побороть грехи своего кровавого прошлого. Будучи неистовой Ордой, они провели несколько разрушительных войн со своим извечным врагом – Альянсом. Ярость и кровожадность, заставлявшие орков уничтожать все на своем пути, почти полностью поглотили их. С давних пор благородные орочьи кланы жили в относительном мире со своими загадочными соседями дренеями на безмятежном Дреноре. Однако у гнусных посланников Пылающего Легиона были другие планы на две эти ничего не подозревающие расы. Демонический повелитель Кил’джеден запустил мрачную цепь событий, которая привела не только к истреблению дренеев, но и превратила орочьи кланы в единую неудержимую машину ненависти и разрушения.
Много лет прошло со времен Великой войны. Храмы богов Хаоса разрушены, но рано принимать затишье за победу. Древняя сила дремлет, ожидая часа, когда на черный алтарь прольется кровь новых жертв. Неведомая болезнь угрожает городу, пал магический щит с древнего лабиринта в Моравских пещерах. Знак возвращения легендарного Князя Мертвецов? Нет. Грядущий враг стократ опаснее. В чьих руках ключ к спасению тысяч жизней? Кому откроются тайны Хаоса? Красавице-иностранке Белале Вораш? Или же доктору Фергу, лекарю и путешественнику между мирами? Хаос вновь вступает в битву с силами Равновесия на страницах проекта «Ник Перумов. Миры».
Адам и Ева потеряли Рай. Только им известно, как велика была эта потеря. Адам и Ева конкретно знали о лучшей, настоящей жизни. Они ею жили, были созданы для нее. Адам и Ева переживали все впервые, не имея представления о смерти, старости, болезнях. Им на своем горьком опыте пришлось первыми это испытать. И бремя греха после первозданной душевной чистоты они понесли на себе первыми. Тогда все начиналось, закладывался фундамент личностных, социальных отношений. Это было начало жизни, начало любви, начало несвободы, начало страданий. Начало наших радостей и бед.

Книга выросла из текстов о Конане-варваре (серия «Русский Конан»), написанных много лет назад на заказ под псевдонимом Даниэл Уолмер. Впоследствии они были переписаны в соавторстве с дочерью – уже со своим героем и мифологией, с психологической проработкой характеров, с акцентом на знания. Книгу можно назвать многослойной, она для всех возрастов, начиная с подросткового. Восемь историй – роман, четыре повести, три рассказа – объединены сквозным персонажем, воителем и странником Арреем, на протяжении жизненного пути меняющимся, «вырастающим из имен».

В этот период на Торн не по своей воле попадают несколько землян. И заколебалась чаша весов, зашевелились последователи забытых культов, встрепенулись недовольные властью, зазвучали слова древних пророчеств, а спецслужбы затеяли новую игру… Над всем этим стоят кукловоды, безразличные к судьбе горстки людей, изгнанных из своего мира, и теперь лишь от самих землян зависит, как сложится здесь жизнь. Так один из них выбирает дорогу мага, а второго ждет путь раба, несмотря ни на что ведущий к свободе!

Со дня гибели Нъярлатхотепа прошло два с половиной года. За это время в Лэнге и на Серой Земле многое изменилось, но Ктулху еще не проснулся. Он спокойно спит в глубинах ледяных вод и видит сны о грядущем падении человечества. Однако спит только Ктулху. Его верные слуги спать даже не думают. Окутан скрывающими чарами, в глухих дебрях сатрапии Сеп строится великий зиккурат, соединяющий два мира.

Жестокое ритуальное убийство положило начало череде загадочных смертей во дворце. Теперь никому нельзя доверять, ведь возможность убить и мотивы предать Кирр были, как оказалось, почти у каждого. Героям необходимо понять, кто стоит за этим, иначе они станут следующими жертвами.
Действие происходит на легендарной горе Меру, известной нам по ведам, да скудным упоминаниям в древних хрониках. Боги еще не переселились на Олимп, но распри между ними не утихают. Вносят свою лепту в раздор и вездесущие титаны. Все понимают, что взрыв неизбежен и каждый ищет свой выход из кризиса. Зевс, считая себя законником, полагается на силу Закона и свой неоспоримый авторитет, не понимая, что выстроенная им вертикаль власти давно расшатана. Интригует за спиной Громовержца даже его законная супруга Гера, где хитростью, а где обманом навязывая свой сценарий поведения. И тут Зевс решает созвать Совет как последний шаг к примирению…
