Five hundred years ago a huge force defeated an evil, supernaturally powerful tyrant who terrorized and ravaged those who cowered under his lash. Now, terrible news suggests that someone or something is preying upon the northern lands, threatening to once again darken the lives of those who still remember the horrific past.

A small, motley band led by a brave warrior and a visionary priest has finally reached the land to the north. They have seen wonders and endured terrifying experiences, barely escaping from a dizzying series of perils, magical and otherwise. But the direst hazards lie before them as they approach the dread power that is terrorizing and enslaving all who oppose it. Finally, the Wanderer, fated to face the ultimate test, will confront his destiny. A world and its trembling masses await the outcome.

Fresh and powerfully told, this epic tale will satisfy fantasy readers as few other legends have done.

Review quote

The world-building is well done, with impressive mythology, cultures and unique creatures. "ROMANTIC TIMES BOOK REVIEWS"

Continues brilliantly where David Bilsborough's debut "The Wanderer's Tale "left off. But it's an altogether darker and more violent affair now. "FANTASYBOOKCRITIC.COM"

The saga's world is conceived on the grand scale, loaded with detail, originality, and wit. A very promising debut. "BOOKLIST on The Wanderer's Tale"

Bilsborough has imbued the quest novel with a gritty realism, an unlikely set of heroes, a range of magics and cultures, and shown how almost anything that can go wrong will, and under the worst of circumstances. "L. E. MODESITT, JR. on The Wanderer's Tale"

Plunges readers into a rich, vividly-realized world, exploring it alongside fascinating characters. Secrets abound, conflicts rage, gore is spilled--and I can't wait for the sequel! "ED GREENWOOD on The Wanderer's Tale""
