Gefährliche Zeiten stehen den Greatcoats Falcio, Kest und Brasti bevor. Mächtige Kräfte zerstören das Reich Tristia von innen, und das Trio muss ihnen Einhalt gebieten, bevor es zu spät ist. Doch die Freundschaft, die die Drei all die Jahre am Leben gehalten hat, wird wie nie zuvor auf die Probe gestellt. Kest wird erfahren, was es heißt, wenn man sich mit den Heiligen anlegt. Brasti wird seine Loyalität gegenüber den Greatcoats infrage stellen. Und Falcio wird – in einem verzweifelten Rennen gegen das Gift, das durch seine Adern fließt – seinen schlimmsten Ängsten gegenübertreten müssen. Werden sie einen Bürgerkrieg dennoch verhindern können?

'First-rate fiction, first rate adventure, first rate full stop' - Sunday Times bestseller Conn Iggulden. Would you - could you? - uphold the law at the cost of those you love? Falcio val Mond, First Cantor of the Greatcoats, is on the brink of fulfilling his dead King's dream: Aline is about to take the throne and restore the rule of law once and for all. But for the Greatcoats, nothing is ever that simple. In neighbouring Avares, an enigmatic new warlord is uniting the barbarian armies and even worse, he is rumoured to have a new ally: Falcio's old nemesis Trin. With the armies of Avares at her back, she'll be unstoppable. Falcio, Kest and Brasti go racing north to stop her, but in those cold, treacherous climes they discover something altogether different - and far more dangerous: a new player plans to take the throne of Tristia, and the Greatcoats, for all their determination and skill, may not be able to stop him.

Shakespeare ist wohl der bekannteste Dramatiker aller Zeiten, doch über sein Leben wissen wir so gut wie nichts. Kein Brief blieb von ihm erhalten, wir kennen nur ein paar dürre Lebensdaten, vereinzelte Schriftsätze aus Prozessen, die er betrieb – und ein überaus nüchternes Testament, in dem er seiner Frau sein zweitbestes Bett vermacht. In seiner hochgelobten Biographie versucht Stephen Greenblatt mit detektivischem Scharfsinn, die Lücken dieser Lebensgeschichte zu füllen und hinter das Geheimnis zu kommen, wie aus einem talentierten Jungen aus einer englischen Kleinstadt der größte Dramatiker aller Zeiten werden konnte, kurz: wie Shakespeare zu Shakespeare wurde.
