A brand-new historical fantasy from a legend of the genre. Fans of Bernard Cornwall, Conn Iggulden and Joe Abercrombie will love this.
Reinmar of Bielawa, sometimes known as Reynevan, is a doctor, a magician and, according to some, a charlatan.
Discovered in bed with the wife of a high-born knight, he must flee his normal life. But his journeys will lead him into a part of Europe which will be overtaken by chaos. Religious tension between Hussite and Catholic countries is threatening to turn into war.
Pursued not only by the affronted Stercza brothers, bent on vengeance, but also by the Holy Inquisition, and with strange, mystical forces gathering in the shadows, Reynevan finds himself in the Narrenturm, the Tower of Fools. The Tower is an asylum for the mad, or for those who dare to think differently and challenge the prevailing order. The 'patients' of this institution form a gallery of colourful types including the young Copernicus, proclaiming the truth of his heliocentric solar system.
But can Reynevan escape the Tower, and avoid being drawn in to the conflict around him, without losing his own mind?
The first in an epic new trilogy set during the vibrantly depicted Hussite Wars by Andrzej Sapkowski, author of the best-selling Witcher series that has become an international phenomenon and inspired a best-selling videogame and Netflix show.
Translated by David French, who worked with Sapkowski on six Witcher books.

Easily the best narrator/voice actor ever
Andrej Sapkowski is well know and has mastered the art of fantasy in a medieval setting, the book is also sure to teach you quite a bit about history or at least refresh certain notions, as everything in the story follows the event of the hussites wars. The main character while not learning the same lessons over and over, which is a bit annoying at times is very attaching and the magic / monsters are not as omnipresent as in the witcher series.
The voice actor, Peter Kenny, is really amazing, not only does he plunges you in the story, have quite different speaking maneurisms and voice accents for each character, but he also sings, speaks recitate passages of the bible and other sayings in latin like it is english ( very naturally I mean) but he also sings in latin!!!! I mean what more can you ask of a voice actor ??

A truly great book narrated by a masterful speaker
The story kept me interested from start to finish, with next to no too slow parts. Can't wait for the next part!
