As ever, greater battles are fought between the Black Road and the True Bloods, so each side in the conflict becomes ever more riven by internal dissent and disunity. Amidst the mounting chaos, Aeglyss the na'kyrim gradually masters the remarkable powers that have been unleashed upon him by his crucifixion. The second volume of the spectacular epic fantasy debut from a new British author destined to become a major new name in the field, combining the historical fantasy of David Gemmell and the political and military machinations of George R.R. Martin.
Brian Ruckley lives in Edinburgh. He has worked for a series of organisations dealing with environmental and youth development issues, but now writes full time.
