The Belly of the Bow, Paperback


The city of Perimadeia has fallen. Bardas Loredan, the man who was supposed to save it, is now living on the Island - a recluce, living apart from his family in the mountains, with only a young apprentice for company.

His life as a fencer-at-law is over. Instead, Loredon spends his days perfecting the art of bow-making.

But his isolation will not last forever; and when the Island comes under attack, his skills as a soldier and general are once again called upon. COLOURS IN THE STEEL, Volume One of the Fencer Trilogy, introduced a remarkable new voice in fantasy fiction.

THE BELLY OF THE BOW confirms that rich promise and establishes K.

J. Parker in the top rank of writers.
