Description

In A Time of Courage, angels, demons and heroes face the ultimate fight for the Banished Lands. This is the epic conclusion to John Gwynne's mighty trilogy: Of Blood and Bone.

Battle the dark.
Reclaim the world . . .

The King of the Otherworld is finally free. Armed with fearsome new starstone weapons, Asroth prepares to lead his demonic war-host south. And with the help of his bride, Fritha, he plans to crush the warrior-angels and their allies for good.

In the shadows of Forn Forest, Riv and the surviving Ben-Elim hold a war council - desperate to unite those who would stand against Asroth and his army. They decide to fly west, to join the Order of the Bright Star. But Drem and the Order are already under siege by a demon horde and their fragile defenses may soon shatter.

Across the Banished Lands, armies are gathering to settle ancient grudges and decide the fate of humanity. Drem, Riv and the Bright Star's warriors will need to call on all their courage as they face the final battle. But will it be enough, as their darkest hour draws near?

Review quote

Great evils, conflicted heroes, bloody battles, betrayal, and giants riding battle bears! What's not to love? -- Peter Newman on A Time of Dread Reminds me of why I became a fantasy enthusiast in the first place -- Robin Hobb on A Time of Dread A riveting sequel, full of rousing, cinematic action that propels a wonderfully absorbing story -- James Islington on A Time of Blood This is extraordinarily good, an epic feat of the imagination. In this series Gwynne is setting a new benchmark in fantasy. I'd love to see it on screen -- Giles Christian on A Time of Blood This book is so damned good . . . John Gwynne writes fantasy with the heart of a hero and the inventiveness of a master mage -- Sebastien de Castell on A Time of Blood A great read that accelerates the pace and goes one up on its excellent predecessor. The characters also grow with the story, finding peril at every turn and few clear choices. Exciting, action-packed fantasy -- Mark Lawrence on A Time of Blood
