from the back of the book:
A great winter fell across the Earth. Corum of the Silver Hand had slain the gods so that Man might rule: the last of the Vadhagh, he had saved the race that had betrayed his own, and he had earned his rest. But it was not to be ... for new gods, and fiercer ones, strode the land. Corum took up the moon-coloured sword with sorrow. For to him fell the task of defeating the Fhoi Myore, the Cold Gods - who yearned for death but could not be slain!
A tale of exceptional and mythic power, The Chronicles of Corum follows The Swords Trilogy and completes the saga of Corum Jhaelen Irsei, who was not a god and yet was not a man.
