A thousand years ago the Acharites drove the Forbidden from their land. Now strange sightings along Achar′s northern border foreshadow their return. The barbaric tribes of the Ravensbund are pouring south with tales of fearsome beings who feed on the terror of their prey.

Axis, bastard son of the dead Princess Rivkah, is sent to the battlefront of Gorkenfort with his elite Axe-Wielders. Once there, he must hand over command to his hated half-brother, Borneheld. But travelling north, Axis falls in love with Faraday - Borneheld′s bethrothed, and meets two priests who challenge the very essence of his beliefs.

The Sentinels walk the land, the TreeFriend has been found, and the people of the Plough, the Wing and the Horn must set aside their differences and unite under one leader against the evil rising in the North...

Epic fantasy, great world builder


Such a great story from Sara Douglass. She builds such an interesting and many layered world.





i find it hard to believe that I've read this series twice and want to read it again



An excellent first book in the series


I really enjoyed this book. Douglass does a great job in creating a whole new world for this classical fantasy series which keeps you wanting to know more. Unlike other fantasy writers, she makes sure that the plot moves quickly so you don't feel like you've read 50 pages about where the main character got his clothes. Recommended for any fantasy readers.
