About the book

Now, as another winter approaches, the armies of the Black Road march south, from their exile beyond the Vale of Stones. For some, war will bring a swift and violent death. Others will not hear the clash of swords or see the corpses strewn over the fields. They instead will see an opportunity to advance their own ambitions. But all, soon, will fall under the shadow that is descending.

For, while the storm of battle rages, one man is following a path that will awaken a terrible power in him - and his legacy will be written in blood.

About the Author

Brian Ruckley

Scottish fantasy novelist Brian Ruckley was born and raised in Edinburgh. After studying at Edinburgh and Stirling Universities, he travelled and took on a number of diverse jobs, including researching gibbons in the rain-forests of Borneo. He later moved to London, and in 2003 he decided to concentrate on his writing, supporting himself as a freelance environmental consultant. Ruckley now lives in Edinburgh with his fiancée.

He has written two novels in his Godless World trilogy, and his website includes extended essays and maps to his novels. His first novel was Winterbirth, in 2007. In 2011, he is publishing a horror-fantasy set in 19th century Edinburgh, The Edinburgh Dead.
