A novel by


Emaneska is crying out for a saviour
The only question is:
Can they kill a child to save a world?

"Galley's imagination is a truly beautiful thing. The plot here is rich and intricate, and the characters are a delight... I believe Mr Galley may well be one to watch."
- Fantasy Bytes

The Pale Kings are rising. Emaneska's Long Winter remains as bitter as a blade between the ribs. War is fast approaching. Gods and demons are hovering on the horizon. Long-lost revelations arrive to haunt the lives of three men.

"Harry Potter meets Lord of the Rings."
- NottingHarp, Amazon Reviewer

While Farden the Written mage busies himself digging up his past in the strange deserts of Paraia, the storm-clouds begin to gather for Durnus, Elessi, Cheska, and Modren.

"There are certain twists that will surprise the reader by genuinely coming out of the left field."
- Fantasy Book Critic

Together with Farfallen and his dragon-riders, they must fight to survive against the Long Winter, the vicious machinations of the new Arkmage, and the arrival of something much deadlier than both combined. War, deception, and murder are quickly becoming the only paths to salvation...

"Ben Galley is not yet as good an author as Gemmell but the thing that I find exciting is that I honestly think that he could be."
- Fantasy Book Review
