Waiting on Wednesday

Continuing on with our regular feature on books that are highly anticipated this year, this week I would like to throw the light on the upcoming Time of Dread, by John Gwynne set in the same universe as his first series - Faithful and the Fallen. I unfortunately haven't read his first series but wish to make full amends with this one: Of Blood and Bone.

Go on, spin me a yarn full of demons, angels and blood-bath!



Set in the same world as the Faithful and the Fallen quartet, the first novel in John Gwynne's Of Blood and Bone series, A Time of Dread, takes place one hundred years after the end of Wrath. The Ben-Elim, a race of warrior angels, once vanquished a mighty demon horde. Now they rule the Banished lands. But their dominion is brutally enforced and their ancient enemy may not be as crushed as they thought. In the snowbound north, Drem, a trapper, finds mutilated corpses in the forests - a sign of demonic black magic. In the south, Riv, a young, tempestuous soldier, discovers a deadly rift within the Ben-Elim themselves. Two individuals with two world-changing secrets. But where will they lead? And what role will Drem and Riv play in the Banished Land's fate? Difficult choices need to be made. Because in the shadows, demons are gathering, waiting for their time to rise. . .

The book comes out from Pan MacMillan, Jan 2018.
