Description

World's End is the third evocative fantasy in Will Elliott's Pendulum Trilogy: "Elliott writes with a power commensurate with the originality of his vision."--Times Literary Supplement When Eric Albright, a luckless London slacker, and his pal Stuart Casey went through a battered red door under a railway bridge, the last thing they expected to find was another world. There lay the strange, dark realm of Levaal, whose tyrant lord Vous has ascended to godhood. The great wall which has divided the land has been brought down, setting loose a horde of demonic Tormentors. In their sky prisons, the dragons are stirring, set to defy their slumbering creator and steal humanity's world. Shilen, a dragon cloaked in human form, has convinced Eric and Aziel, Vous's daughter, to help free the dragons from their sky-prison, or Earth will be destroyed. She promises great power, and safety for all Eric's favoured people, but Shilen has an ulterior motive, for the dragons wish to control humankind completely. Levaal is facing the final battle in this age-old war between worlds and forces more ancient than any human, god, or dragon. With this third volume in The Pendulum Trilogy, Will Elliott's brilliantly subversive imagination twists the conventions of the alternate-world fantasy genre, providing an unforgettable visionary experience.

Review quote

Praise for the Pendulum Trilogy -The first stage in a gloriously wayward journey through the shattered relics of standard epic fantasy that left me eager to continue.---Locus on The Pilgrims -A gripping series of events moves briskly...leaving us all wanting to know what happens to the world as much as to our protagonists.---RT Book Reviews -The author's not only a superb craftsman and character-builder, but a consummate storyteller, so that each good-against-evil clash appears fresh and engrossing.---Kirkus Reviewsshow more
