When we received our copies of Elegy for Darkness by Jacqueline Carey, Jeff and I were excited to see how beautiful the book turned out. I think it might be my favorite Grim Oak edition so far. Epic Donato Giancola artwork inside and out, foiled and embossed dust jacket, a black ribbon to keep your reading place, black stained pages, double-signed by author and artist, and the highest quality materials.
And not only that, but it's an epic tragedy of epic fantasy, one of my favorite books in the Tolkien tradition.
I'm not the only one who feels that way. Years ago, bestselling A Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin said the same on his Not A Blog about Banewreaker and Godslayer, the two books that comprise Elegy for Darkness:
As you can see from what George says, he loved Elegy for Darkness. He's a man who does not recommend books lightly. I actually sent George a copy -- "numbered" GRRM because I thought that'd be fun -- and I hope he loves it like I do.
While you wait on The Winds of Winter or if you love Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, I also recommend Elegy for Darkness. You can order it HERE — and a slipcase for it if you like — and you will not be disappointed.
Hope you are staying safe, healthy, and reading something great! All love from us to you during this hard time.
