Matthew Stover Books Overview

Heroes Die

Renowned throughout the land of Ankhana as the Blade of Tyshalle, Caine has killed his share of monarchs and commoners, villains and heroes. He is relentless, unstoppable, simply the best there is at what he does. At home on Earth, Caine is Hari Michaelson, a superstar whose adventures in Ankhana command an audience of billions. Yet he is shackled by a rigid caste society, bound to ignore the grim fact that he kills men on a far off world for the entertainment of his own planet and bound to keep his rage in check. But now Michaelson has crossed the line. His estranged wife, Pallas Rill, has mysteriously disappeared in the slums of Ankhana. To save her, he must confront the greatest challenge of his life: a lethal game of cat and mouse with the most treacherous rulers of two worlds…

Blade of Tyshalle

Twenty seven years ago, they said Hari Michaelson didn’t have a chance. He was just a loser, a street criminal from a disgraced family. He’d never make anything of himself. They were wrong. He made himself into Caine: Killer. Superstar. Hero…
THE Blade of TyshalleSix years ago, Ma’elkoth a god of Overworld held Pallas Ril in his merciless grip. Earth’s ruling elite wanted her dead. Caine swore he would save her. They said he didn’t have a chance. They were wrong. He sacrificed his career as Caine to crush Pallas Ril’s enemies and bring her home. Now Hari Michaelson is the only man who stands between the soulless corporate masters of Earth and the green hills of Overworld. Caine’s victory over Ma’elKoth opened a door between the worlds, and the faceless mas*ses of Earth are killing everything he loves. Enemies old and new array themselves against him. And Hari’s not even Caine anymore. He’s just one man alone, half crippled, powerless. They say he doesn’t have a chance. They are wrong…

Caine Black Knife

In Heroes Die and Blade of Tyshalle, Matthew Stover created a new kind of fantasy novel, and a new kind of hero to go with it: Caine, a street thug turned superstar, battling in a future where reality shows take place in another dimension, on a world where magic exists and gods are up close and personal. In that beautiful, savage land, Caine is an assassin without peer, a living legend born from one of the highest rated reality shows ever made. That season, Caine almost single handedly defeated and all but exterminated the fiercest of all tribes: the Black Knives. But the shocking truth of what really took place during that blood drenched adventure has never been revealed…
until now. Thirty years later, Caine returns to the scene of his greatest triumph some would say greatest crime at the request of his adopted brother Orbek, the last of the true Black Knives. But where Caine goes, danger follows, and he soon finds himself back in familiar territory: fighting for his life against impossible odds, with the fate of two worlds hanging in the balance. Just the way Caine likes it.

Armed with the deadly chained Blades of Chaos, guided by the goddess Athena, and driven by his own insatiable thirst for vengeance, Kratos seeks the only relic powerful enough to slay Ares…
a quest that will take him deep into the mysterious temple borne by the Titan Cronos!From the black depths of Hades to the war torn city of Athens to the lost desert beyond, God of War sheds a brutal new light on the bestselling video game and on the legend of Kratos.
