Literature: Chronicles of Blood and Stone

A series of High Fantasy novels by Robert Newcomb, notable for a) a literal gender war, with women as the baddies, and b) an amazingly vehement Hatedom, partly because of the gender war and partly because of rampant cliches.

The order of the books is:
  • The Fifth Sorceress (2002)
  • The Gates of Dawn (2003)
  • The Scrolls of the Ancients (2004)

The sequel trilogy is known as Destinies of Blood and Stone. There were plans for a third trilogy, Victories of Blood and Stone, but publisher Del Rey cancelled Newcomb's contract after the second trilogy was released.
