Product description

Amazon Review

Soldier wakes from a confused dream of a desperate battle in a land where he does not belong, does not know the rules; Kim Hunter's Knight's Dawn first of theThe Red Pavilions sequence constantly and inventively wrongfoots us about what sort of book this is going to turn out to be. Soldier comes to the city of Zamerkand and finds himself caught up in its vicious politics and mad economic structure; hired to collect severed hands from the many hanged, his death is ordered by politicians who just don't want any unaccountable players in town and reprieved by a mad and disfigured princess, with whom he falls desperately in love. On a quest to find the cure for her madness, he finds himself endlessly caught in mythic patterns that go otherwise than we expect--Soldier is not an entirely nice or sane man, and the world of humans is no more corrupt than the world of magical beings which surrounds it. Knight's Dawn has passionate inventiveness going for it, and also a deep sense of unease--for once we have no reason to suppose that we are headed for anything recognisable as a happy ending. --Roz Kaveney
