Malice Young Corban watches enviously as boys become warriors, learning the art of war. He yearns to wield his sword and spear to protect his king’s realm. But that day will come all too soon. Only when he loses those he loves will he learn the true price of courage.

The Banished Lands has a violent past where armies of men and giants clashed in battle, the earth running dark with their heartsblood. Although the giant-clans were broken in ages past, their ruined fortresses still scar the land. But now giants stir anew, the very stones weep blood and there are sightings of giant wyrms. Those who can still read the signs see a threat far greater than the ancient wars. Sorrow will darken the world, as angels and demons make it their battlefield. Then there will be a war to end all wars.

High King Aquilus summons his fellow kings to council, seeking an alliance in this time of need. Prophesy indicates darkness and light will demand two champions, the Black Sun and the Bright Star. They would be wise to seek out both, for if the Black Sun gains ascendancy, mankind’s hopes and dreams will fall to dust.

    Really enjoyed the first book. Am looking forward to book two. Clearly there are comparisons to be drawn. Not many new themes to be explored but as John Gwynne shows, many new ways to explore the themes we all love. Do buy this - you will enjoy it.

    Despite the use of a few fantasy cliches, it manages to avoid many more and I loved this. Fantastic characters you can truly believe in and empathise with. Not quite as huge a cast as game of thrones, but I love the grey moral quandaries throughout and the character driven chapters allow you to really get into the heads of all the main characters whether good or bad. Highly recommended......
