Memory

By K. J. Parker (Electronic Book, 2013)

Returning to his childhood home was supposed to bring peace for Poldarn. But it was not to be. The island proved no sanctuary from the ghosts of his past, or from the demons that stalk his dreams. Instead, he has unearthed yet more lies, betrayals, and enemies from his former life. But with each fresh discovery, Poldarn is coming ever closer to the reality of his shadowy origins. One by one, the fragmented memories and obscure clues are falling into place, forming a truth he cannot escape, a past he cannot deny, and a history that may be more than he---or anyone else---can bear.

K.J. Parker is a pseudonym.
  • "[Sharps] is a ripping good adventure yarn, laced with frequent barbed witticisms and ace sword fighting... Parker's settings and characterizations never miss a beat, and the intricate political interplay of intrigue is suspenseful almost to the last page." (Publishers Weekly).

  • "Courtly intrigue, intelligent prose, and complicated plotting." --- graspingforthewind.com on The Folding Knife

    "I have reviewed books before that I thought might someday be found to have achieved greatness.... But I am trying to be precise in my use of the word when I tell you that K.J. Parker is writing work after work that demands to be placed in that category. " --- Orson Scott Card on The Engineer Trilogy

    "It's a dark, bleak and fiercely intelligent portrait of the human condition." --- SFX on The Company

    "Imagine Lost meets The Italian Job...a masterfully planned and executed book, one that builds on ever-revealing characterization and back-story, leading slowly yet inexorably to its final conclusion." --- SFF World on The Company
