The eagerly anticipated follow up to A Time of Dread – for fans of Mark Lawrence, Patrick Rothfuss, Joe Abercrombie, Game of Thrones and Vikings. OF BLOOD AND BONE is a spectacular new series set in the same world as the Faithfull and Fallen quartet; one hundred years after the end of Wrath.
Drem and his companions flee the battle at Starstone Lake. They’ve seen horrors they’ll never forget, like magic warping men into beasts. They also witnessed a demon being raised from the dead – to become a Revenant, and more powerful than before. Now Drem carries a warning to the Order of the Bright Star. But the priestess Fritha has been sent to destroy them. And as she closes on the group, she burns to complete her mission.
Hiding in the heart of Forn Forest, Riv struggles to understand her half-breed heritage. She represents the warrior-angels’ biggest secret, one which could tear their fortress at Drassil apart. And when she’s found, and the Ben-Elim’s high captain swoops in for the kill, it could yet be the death of her.
Demons will sail for Drassil with their mighty war-host. And the Order of the Bright Star would come to the angels’ aid. However, Fritha and her misshapen creatures are tasked with destroying them. Like the heroes of old, Drem, his companions and the Order will fight for truth and justice. But can the light triumph when the dark is rising?
