From two time British Fantasy Award-winning author, Jen Williams, comes the electrifying conclusion to the Winnowing Flame trilogy. Exhilarating epic fantasy for fans of Robin Hobb.

'One of the best fantasy novels of the year, if not the decade' James Oswald

'A fitting finale, triumphant and bittersweet in all the best ways' SciFiNow

All is chaos. All is confusion. The Jure'lia are weak, but the war is far from over.

Ebora was once a glorious city, defended by legendary warriors and celebrated in song. Now refugees from every corner of Sarn seek shelter within its crumbling walls, and the enemy that has poisoned their land won't lie dormant for long.

The deep-rooted connection that Tormalin, Noon and the scholar Vintage share with their Eboran war-beasts has kept them alive so far. But with Tor distracted, and his sister Hestillion hell-bent on bringing ruthless order to the next Jure'lia attack, the people of Sarn need all the help they can get.

Noon is no stranger to playing with fire and knows just where to recruit a new - and powerful - army. But even she underestimates the epic quest that is to come. It is a journey wrought with pain and sacrifice - a reckoning that will change the face of Sarn forever.

Join forces with the heroes of the WINNOWING FLAME TRILOGY as they strive to silence the Jure'lia's poison song once and for all.

Review quote

One of the best fantasy novels of the year, if not the decade -- James Oswald When a trilogy has a set of characters that you fall in love with so entirely, it can be hard to reach the end and say goodbye. The Poison Song is a fitting finale, triumphant and bittersweet in all the best ways * SciFi Now * I was heartbroken by the ending, and yet the whole series has been utterly magnificent. Jen has created such a wonderful cast of characters for this adventure, I'm sorry to have to leave them now. The whole series has shown such amazing inventiveness, and all at a breakneck pace -- James Oswald A very strong and welcome conclusion to the exceptional Winnowing Flame trilogy... The Poison Song is much more than the sum of its parts. Well paced, tightly written, filled with compelling characters and some rather lovely prose, this final instalment brings it all together very well, making the whole experience rather worthwhile. Jen Williams is a genius, and we can't wait to see what she does next * Starburst * Worry ye not, fantasy fans, because we are in very safe hands here. Jen Williams wrote one of the best fantasy trilogies with her previous "Copper Cat" books, and they were always going to be a tough act to follow, but she's blown all expectations away with a very satisfying conclusion to "The Winnowing Flame" trilogy and set the bar awfully high for whatever she does next * Concatenation *
