Description

At first Wayfarer Inspector Danolarian thought the huge oval thing that had fallen from the sky was a dragon's egg. When it opened, however, he knew that it was much, much worse. His world was being invaded by pitiless sorcerers from Lupan, who could sweep whole armies aside and even defeat the invulnerable glass dragons. Surrender or flight were the only options...but not for Inspector Danolarian, his Wayfarer Constables, and his sweetheart, the sorceress Lavenci. Although Danolarian is no sorcerer, he's no ordinary Wayfarer either. With civilisation crumbling around him and organised resistance shattered by the invincible magic of the Lupanians, he chances upon an unlikely ally and begins to fight back. It won't be easy, for he has to rally the demoralised sorcerers of Alberin, organise its terrified citizens, stay one step ahead of his own past, and, most importantly, survive a dinner party with Lavenci's mother.

Review quote

Praise for "Voidfarer" "Imagine Alexandre Dumas's account of H.G. Wells's Martians invading Terry Pratchett's Discworld . . . . A vibrant, thoughtful, spectacular, adventure-drama. . . .McMullen borrows freely, but weaves his own magical comedy of horrors. The result: a blast." -"Kirkus", starred review "Zany. . .reworking of "The War of the Worlds". . . .Fans of Wells's masterpiece will reel in this fantasy." -"Publishers Weekly"" ""Sean McMullen's back in his funny, rowdy, bawdy moonworld Verral. . . .Third in this series, after the lovely "Voyage of the Shadowmoon" and "Glass Dragons", this volume has McMullen's characters reprising H.G. Wells' "War of the Worlds" and a series of love-and-sex mistakes that could've been lifted from Shakespeare . . . . One very fun novel." -"The San Diego Union-Tribune"" ""Vastly entertaining, McMullen's book turns all sorts of fantasy tropes upside down in a fast-paced and humorous way. Fans of Terry Pratchett will likely get a kick out of this book, as will readers who are tired of seeing the same things over and over again in fantasy novels." -"Romantic Times Bookclub"
