The Burning City by Larry Niven
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


There was fire on Earth before the fire god came. There has always been fire.What Prokeet, the fire god, gave to mankind was madness ...They burned the city when Whandall Placehold was two. And then again when he was seven. Prokeet possessed one of the lordkin, the lust for fire took hold and the burning began. Whandall was himself one of the lordkin, but his insatiable curiosity about the hostile natural world and about the different peoples who surrounded him, allied to his intelligence and courage, marked him out for something more than burning down his own city. And when he felt Prokeet enter him, it was just the start of an epic journey that would turn him into a legend. The writers of classics such as LUCIFER'S HAMMER, FOOTFALL and THE MOTE IN GOD'S EYE have created a masterly tale of magic, gods, wizards and heroes that ranks among the very best in the genre.
