'A fast-paced, page-turning ride. Hugely entertaining' John Gwynne

'A dark and lush epic fantasy brimming with magical creatures and terrifying evil . . . Readers of George R. R. Martin and Patrick Rothfuss will find much to enjoy here' Booklist

The magic has returned . . . and so have the monsters.

Devin Eveson is a Soulkeeper, traveling through remote villages as a priest and healer. But when a mysterious black water washes over the world, the veil is torn, flooding the land with ancient magic and forgotten races. And not all the creatures that have reawakened remember humanity fondly.

As the land grows increasingly dangerous and chaotic, Soulkeepers are turning up dead. Devin must set aside his words of peace and accept his new role: slayer of monsters and protector of the human race.

Soulkeeper is the start of a thrilling new fantasy series from USA Today bestseller David Dalglish - think The Witcher meets Dungeons and Dragons.

Review quote

SOULKEEPER is a fast-paced, page-turning ride with a great, likeable main character in Devin Eveson. Hugely entertaining * John Gwynne, author of MALICE * Soulkeeper brought me back to the nostalgia I had during that first game of Dungeons and Dragons: a sense of wonder, exploration and camaraderie difficult to find anywhere else * Bookpage * A dark and lush epic fantasy brimming with magical creatures and terrifying evil . . . Dalglish's world building is subtle and fluid, and he weaves the history, magical workings, and governance of his world within the conversations and camaraderie of his characters. Readers of George R. R. Martin and Patrick Rothfuss will find much to enjoy here * Booklist * Trademark Dalglish action, cool magic & characters who will stay with you for a long time * Fantasy Book Critic *
