The great war ended with the death of the legendary dragon Vespertine. The last gambit failed the wizards lost, and now a final sickness leaks into the earth.

There is no stopping it. it unfolds south as a bruise upon the sky, and forces Castrel and Shay from their small home days before their baby arrives. Now they wander, seeking food, seeking shelter, always trying to keep their daughter Hope safe.

And then they come upon the dragon. Vespertine. It is colossal, it is humbling, it is still. When Hope begins to change soon after, Castrel and Shay's promise to keep their daughter alive is set to become even harder, and so much more important. For now she has the heart of the dragon, and - while a dragon still breathes - there is hope for new life in this ending world.

Art emphatically includes fantasy. At least, it does when the fantasy is as exceptional as this [THE WOLFHOUND CENTURY trilogy] - Guardian the surprises keep on coming ... but quietly and subtly, like a dreaded knock on the door of an apartment in a brutalist concrete tower block in the dead of night [THE WOLFHOUND CENTURY trilogy] - Independent Well-paced action... This world of a totalitarian state pitted against equally extremist revolutionaries is gripping... a solid page-turner [THE WOLFHOUND CENTURY trilogy] - The Sun Like vintage China Mieville, but with all the violent narrative thriller drive of Ian Fleming at his edgiest [THE WOLFHOUND CENTURY trilogy]
