Publisher's Summary

Green is back in Copper Downs. Purchased from her father in sunny Selistan when she was four years old, she was harshly raised to be a courtesan, companion, and bedmate of the Immortal Duke of Copper Downs. But Green rebelled.Green killed the Duke, and many others, and won her freedom. Yet she is still claimed by the gods and goddesses of her world, and they still require her service. Their demands are greater than any duke's could have been.

Godslayers have come to the Stone Coast, magicians whose cult is dedicated to destroying the many gods of Green's world.In the turmoil following the Immortal Duke's murder, Green made a God out of her power and her memories.Now the gods turn to her to protect them from the Slayers.

Jay Lake brings us an epic fantasy not "in the tradition of Tolkien," but, instead, sensual, ominous, shot through with the sweat of fear and the intoxication of power.

Also listen to the first book, Green.

What the Critics Say

"Lake deftly weaves complicated, stubborn characters into a plot that reaches the grandest and most personal scales without ever straining credulity… This complex, lonesome, haunting novel will appeal to fans of Valente, Monette, and Mieville." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Enjoyable"

    I enjoyed the book in many ways more than the first.

    The performance was so good I sought out other things Katherine Kellgren did.

    As with the last book there is enough action to keep things moving and enough surprises to keep you guessing.

    The best and worst part is that clearly there needs to be another book in the series. Hopefully I won't have to wait long.

    "I couldn't wait for this to come out..."

    We loved Green and kept watching for the next book to come out. Green was just the build up for this adventure which left a wide opening for the next book. It might seem odd but I think we will like book 3 better than book 2. There is a little too much going on all the time and to much set up without conclususion. We will still go for book 3 and hope for the best as long as they keep Katherine Kellgren as the narrator.

    "I could not get off the first chapter!"
    Would you try another book from Jay Lake and/or Katherine Kellgren?

    I don't think so.


    Has Endurance turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, between the story and the performance I just found I could not get off the first chapter


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I found her reading performance as artificial.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I did not get far enough to find out.
