The Black Petal was just the beginning. Choices need to be made.

The Seriburg Wastelands smoulder with ash, destruction, and bodies ...

But two bodies stir beneath a phoenix. With all hope of getting home lost, Jack and Blake must learn to get along, to embrace their shared soul. Tricked by an oracle, Jack feels betrayed and embarrassed. Blake doesn't know how he feels. And Lucia is dead.

Or is she?

When a mysterious bottle reveals a message for Jack, he puts all notion of returning home aside. The Underworld beckons, with its crypts and cells and tortured souls. But if Lucia can be rescued, surely Jack must do all he can? Eliza the gypsy is still intent on creating her own army of gods; should Jack ignore the whispers or find a way to stop the deranged outcast?

The Golden Lyre expands upon the mythological universe of The Black Petal. Meet new heroes and villains, battle past three-headed sea monsters and stand up to the malicious Warden of Hades. You never know, old friends may resurface.


What people are saying about Dan Thompson:

"Rich characters, exciting worlds, Thompson can do it all!" Jack Croxall, author of Wye

"There is epic fantasy, breathless adventure, a blossoming love story and a generous helping of mythical references that will keep the most ardent fantasy reader enthralled. I'm very much reminded of Pullman's His Dark Materials ..." The Fine Line

"Dan's writing is always full of vivid imagery and poetry with imaginative settings that make his work stand apart from most fantasy fiction." Sharon Sant, author of The Memory Game

"Dan has his own unique and totally fresh way of telling a story." Jane Yates, author of Garden

About Dan Thompson

Dan is an author of nonsense, mostly. Some like it though, which is good enough for him. Yarns include Here Lies Love, The Caseworker's Memoirs, and The Black Petal. Dan lives in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire (England) with his young daughter. Gainsborough is a small town, not too big, and not too small, which is exactly how he likes it. Plus, Lincoln isn't too far away - a city worth visiting for the cathedral alone. Dan grew up reading Enid Blyton's The Famous Five series, secretly coming up with his own inventive adventures, and R.L Stine's The Goosebump series, before turning to the works of Philip Pullman, Eoin Colfer and Marcus Sedgwick and slipping away into alternate realities. Northern Lights is his favourite book and rereads it every year for inspiration. Deborah Harkness and Danielle Trussoni are some of his favourite authors who write for adults. Fantasy, mythology, and magic are all elements that make a fantastic book, in Dan's eyes. Sharon Sant, Romina Russell, and Jack Croxall are some of his favourite authors who write for teenagers. Young adult books never go out of fashion and are often shunned by some readers. The YA genre is a particular favourite for Dan. Escapism and pure enjoyment is something the YA market captures in its purest form.
