HADON, KING OF OPAR
A brand-new tale in Philip José Farmer’s Khokarsa series from Christopher Paul Carey, the coauthor of THE SONG OF KWASIN!
In HADON OF ANCIENT OPAR, the hero Hadon entered the Great Games, battling in the arena for the chance to become king. Instead, he found himself at odds with a vengeful tyrant who sent him on a fool’s errand to retrieve a living god’s bounty. In FLIGHT TO OPAR, civil war has erupted across the queendoms of Khokarsa, and Hadon must take his quest back to his home city of Opar if he is to fulfill a prophecy of the oracle and protect his loved ones and his homeland from utter doom. In THE SONG OF KWASIN, Hadon makes an appearance following the adventures of his giant herculean cousin, surveying a world torn asunder by a continent-wide earthquake.
Now, in HADON, KING OF OPAR fourteen years have passed since the great calamity threw the mighty queendoms of Khokarsa from their foundations, and Hadon is king of Opar, charged with protecting his far-flung jungle city against the myriad dangers that threaten it.
HADON, KING OF OPAR will be published simultaneously in both hardcover and paperback featuring stunning artwork by Bob Eggleton!
