Product description

Review

Storytelling assurance rare for a debut . . . Fans of Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson will find much to admire -- GUARDIAN

So exciting . . . Will appeal not only to The Wheel of Time readers, but to anybody looking for a coming-of-age fantasy tale with likeable characters and strong worldbuilding -- FANTASY FACTION

A traditional coming-of-age, saving-the-world epic fantasy in the vein of Tad Williams, Raymond E. Feist (and yes, Robert Jordan). But it also has the flavour of something new . . . You'll be left wanting more -- SFX

Action aplenty and an ample spattering of violence . . . This is a whole new world with a fresh fantasy streak

-- SCIFINOW

A relentless juggernaut of a book . . . Astoundingly intricate worldbuilding -- DAILY MAIL

Wonderful worldbuilding and terrific characters -- BOINGBOING

Incessant plot twists and a relentless pace -- KIRKUS

Love the Wheel of Time? This is about to become your new favourite series -- BARNES & NOBLE SF BLOG

Complex magic, terrifying threats out of legend, political intrigue, and a large cast of characters . . . Fans of doorstop epic fantasy will not be disappointed -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Magic, monsters, prophecies, betrayals and revenge . . . The first novel by James Islington has it all -- THE ELOQUENT PAGE

Definitely a series to watch out for. It has everything you wish in Epic fantasy and a lot more -- THE BOOK PLANK

An action-packed nailbiter -- BOOKBAG

Relentless pace and exciting plot . . . absorbing and impressive -- CULTUREFLY

Book Description

From the publisher of the Wheel of Time comes a debut fantasy blockbuster in that same grand tradition, from a bright new talent set to become a major force in the genre
