The Cold Commands, page 267 by Richard K. Morgan

The full name of Ringil Eskiath’s sword:

“I am Welcomed in the Home of Ravens and Other Scavengers in the Wake of Warriors,” Ringil recited for him, hollowly.  “I am friend to Carrion Crows and Wolves.  I am Carry Me and Kill with Me, and Die with Me Where the Road Ends.  I am not the Honeyed Promise of Length of Life in Years to Come.  I am the Iron Promise of Never Being a Slave.”

Dag, this book is good.

  1. Wait… I’m not seeing Cold Commands anywhere. I only see Steel Remains. Am I missing something? (I’ve put a reserve on Steel Remains, though, so will read that after The Warrior-Prophet.)

    • The Cold Commands just came out last week, so it might still be in processing at your library. Steel Remains is the first book in the series and like all of Morgan’s stuff, stands alone very well, even though it is part of a greater whole.

  2. Pingback: Putting this on my to-read list right the hell now.
