Winter lies cold and dark upon the world; it seems that spring will never come. Once dismissed as the ravings of a crazed hermit, the prophecies of Honorius seem at last to be coming true. In the harbour of Old Abrusio, the Gabrian Osprey lies docked at last, home from her long voyaging. Only a handful of shocked survivors remain of that proud expedition that set forward almost a year before ...but they are not alone. Something has come with them from the uttermost west.
SALES POINTS "One of the best fantasy works for ages ... tough, muscular realism ... Kearney paints the gore, the sex and the lust for power in vivid colour" SFX "Impressive for its human insights, its unusual take on the use of magic, and its fine blending of historical elements with sheer invention" Locus "His Monarchies of God is simply the best fantasy series I've read in years and years" Steve Erikson
