Inhaltsangabe

Nona Grey’s story reaches its shattering conclusion in the third instalment of Book of the Ancestor.

They came against her as a child. Now they face the woman.

The ice is advancing, the Corridor narrowing, and the empire is under siege from the Scithrowl in the east and the Durns in the west. Everywhere, the emperor’s armies are in retreat.

Nona faces the final challenges that must be overcome if she is to become a full sister in the order of her choice. But it seems unlikely that Nona and her friends will have time to earn a nun’s habit before war is on their doorstep.

Even a warrior like Nona cannot hope to turn the tide of war. The shiphearts offer strength that she might use to protect those she loves, but it’s a power that corrupts. A final battle is coming in which she will be torn between friends, unable to save them all. A battle in which her own demons will try to unmake her. A battle in which hearts will be broken, lovers lost, thrones burned.

Holy Sister completes the Book of the Ancestor trilogy that began with Red Sister and Grey Sister. A groundbreaking series, it has established Mark Lawrence as one of the most exciting new voices in modern speculative fiction.

Kritikerstimmen

"An excellent writer." (George R.R. Martin)

"Dark, passionate, tense, with a female hero anyone could relate to - I was utterly fascinated! This is no pretty, flowery tale, but one of vastly different people struggling to survive when a hostile government comes to power." (Number one New York Times best-selling author Tamora Pierce)

Another great novel by Marc Lawrence

A well placed narration and a well paced story with epic ninja nun sorcerer science fiction wiredness that was way to enjoyable...
... Almost want a sequel, if not for the excitement of not knowing what new interesting world Lawrence will dwlight this world here next.

Simply amazing!

Holy sister is a perfect end to an amazing series. Many (not all) threads of the story first presented in Red Sister and Grey Sister are tied together in the end.
