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)
