Finally the Weavers face off in a war that will forever change the Forelands. Once again David B. Coe shows his mastery of the craft. With a large cast, plenty of action, adventure and political intrigue this book has it all. This is by far one of my favorite series of all times. The characters are very real, the magic plausible and the story itself as a whole was incredible. If you love fantasy then give this series a try. I promise you will not be disappointed. One of Mr. Coe's strongest points is his characters. Much like real life there isn't always just black and white, good and evil but shades of grey. At one point in the series I found myself laughing with glee as the badguy took over a kingdom. A badguy who I hated very much. That is a testemat to the power of his characters. When you can sympathize and support a villain that you hate then the author has done a damn fine job. The assassin who started it all is another example. I started out hating him but grew to really like his character and even sympathize a bit even if I didn't truly like his actions. Not that anyone just suddenly turns goody goody all of a sudden and goes agains their own natures. Nothing like that really happens it's just that he makes his characters so human that you can't help but enjoy them. All in all one of the best fantasy series I've ever read and I enjoyed every moment of it. ( )

The touch of his mind on hers was as gentle as the Weaver's had been brutal, as tender and loving as the Weaver's had been vengeful and cruel.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0765351064, Mass Market Paperback)

In the four previous books of his epic fantasy series Winds of the Forelands, David Coe has woven a complex tapestry of magic and politics, courage and betrayal, love and hate. Now, he brings the many strands of this enthralling series together in a climactic novel that will thrill readers of epic magical fantasy.
 
For years the magical Qirsi people who live among the Eandi courts of the Forelands have conspired, weakening alliances among the realms. The renegades are led by a mysterious Weaver named Dusaan with powers that allow him to appear in the dreams of his followers and to bind the magic of many Qirsi into a single weapon more potent than any the Eandi have faced in a thousand years.
 
Now, his planning begins to bear fruit. He reveals himself to friend and foe alike, knowing that none can stand against him. Dusaan takes control of the Empire and begins his march toward war, enlisting those who serve him in other realms to join the battle, as the ranks of his army swell.
 
King Kearney's armies are forced to battle Eandi invaders from Braedon. However, this battle is a diversion contrived by Dusaan to weaken the Eandi armies. Grinsa, another Weaver, fights for the king. Knowing that the renegades are the true enemy, he struggles to make his people recognize this before it's too late. At last, the two Weavers do battle, Dusaan leading his army of Qirsi sorcerers, Grinsa standing with an alliance of Eandi nobles and warriors.
 
Whichever side wins will bear a heavy cost for victory.

"Weavers of War brings Winds of the Forelands to a powerful climax. After nine hundred years of peace, war has again erupted between the magical Qirsi and their Eandi masters. After the failed Qirsi uprising nearly a millennium ago, the Eandi thought they could prevent another bloody conflict by making sure no Qirsi Weaver - a sorcerer powerful enough to wield many magics and, worse, weave together others' magics into a fearsomely powerful weapon - would ever be born." "But now a Weaver has come to power. For years he worked secretly with assassins, spies, and traitors to create deep resentments and suspicions among the lords of the land. He has even divided his own people, for while all feel oppressed, even the Weaver's most loyal collaborators fear his anger and the bitter lash of his punishment when they disappoint him." "In the chaos of a war that is sundering the land, only Grinsa, a humble fortune-teller, stands against the growing dark power of the Weaver's ever-advancing horde. But Grinsa has battled the Weaver once before and lost, barely avoiding a magical killing blow. With the fate of the Forelands resting on his shoulders, he must step into the breach again, facing the near certainty of his own death and the loss of all he holds dear."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
