A breakthrough adult fantasy for an internationally published, Smarties award nominated, 26-year-old children's author.
A richly textured, darkly evocative fantasy set in a beautifully realised fantasy world, the Saramyr trilogy tells the story of an empire that rules over a land being overwhelmed by evil.
An evil that comes from within the empire's centre, a sect of magicians close to the throne intent on killing any child born with magical powers. But now the empress has given birth to just such a child and revolution is brewing.
Akin to the works of Robin Hobb, this is a hugely involving fantasy set in a world with an enticing oriental flavour.
