Monument

(2002)
A novel by

 
 
Ballas is a drunk and a vagrant. In his eyes there is only greed, and in his heart only bitterness. Such a man is not suited to legend. He is fit only for an unmarked grave. And there are people who seek to hasten his journey there.

When a young priest saves him from a beating in the street, Ballas does not know how to react to such an act of kindness. But he soon finds a way to pay him back. He steals from him.

What Ballas chooses to take can easily be hidden under a cloak, but it is no trinket to be sold in the market for a bowl of soup. It is known as the monument. And the power it contains will bring a god of chaos and destruction into the world. Now Ballas has that power.

MONUMENT is a masterpiece of storytelling - a new classic of fantasy fiction.
