Set in the same world as the Faithful and the Fallen quartet, the first novel in John Gwynne's Of Blood and Bone series, A Time of Dread, takes place one hundred years after the end of Wrath. The Ben-Elim, a race of warrior angels, once vanquished a mighty demon horde. Now they rule the Banished lands. But their dominion is brutally enforced and their ancient enemy may not be as crushed as they thought. In the snowbound north, Drem, a trapper, finds mutilated corpses in the forests - a sign of demonic black magic. In the south, Riv, a young, tempestuous soldier, discovers a deadly rift within the Ben-Elim themselves. Two individuals with two world-changing secrets. But where will they lead? And what role will Drem and Riv play in the Banished Land's fate? Difficult choices need to be made. Because in the shadows, demons are gathering, waiting for their time to rise. . .

I loved A Time of Dread and read it from cover to cover in two days. I couldn't put it down * Miles Cameron * Great characters and plot - it gets faster and more fascinating by the page . . . A hell of a debut: highly recommended -- Conn Iggulden on Malice With all manner of battles, betrayals and revelations. I particularly enjoyed the battle scenes and duels . . . If it sounds like your thing, then it probably is -- Mark Lawrence on Malice A strong contender for the if you like Game of Thrones, why not try this? award -- Independent on Malice Valour is hands down the best fantasy I have read in an age -- Book Frivolity on Valour Triumphant . . . A masterful thrill ride of a book -- Dominish Fantasy Reviews on Ruin A breathtakingly perfect finale to a series that has grown from strength to wonderful strength. Poignant, pulse-pounding and phenomenally paced . . . satisfying - and heart-breaking - climax that Tolkien himself would be proud to have penned * Fantasy Faction on Wrath *
