Ringil, the hero of the bloody slaughter at Gallows Gap is a legend
to all who don't know him and a twisted degenerate to those that
do. A veteran of the wars against the lizards he makes a living
from telling credulous travellers of his exploits. Until one day he
is pulled away from his life and into the depths of the Empire's
slave trade. Where he will discover a secret infinitely more
frightening than the trade in lives. Archeth - pragmatist, cynic
and engineer, the last of her race - is called from her work at the
whim of the most powerful man in the Empire and sent to its
farthest reaches to investigate a demonic incursion against the
Empire's borders. Egar Dragonbane, steppe-nomad, one-time fighter
for the Empire finds himself entangled in a small-town battle
between common sense and religious fervour. But out in the wider
world there is something on the move far more alien than any of his
tribe's petty gods. Anti-social, anti-heroic, and decidedly

to the fantasy genre and produces a landmark work with his first
