The second book in a new epic fantasy trilogy from Glenda Larke, author of the Stormlord series - full of scheming, spying, action and adventure
THEY FOLLOW WHERE THE DAGGER LEADS
Ardhi, Sorrel and the excommunicated cleric, Saker Rampion, stow away on a ship to the Spice Islands. They must return stolen items of great power to Ardhi's home, but there are ruthless men after this power, men who will kill to possess it.
At home in Ardrone, an army of demonic origin runs amok while Saker's superiors in the church struggle to quell it. And the young queen Mathilda struggles with the possibility that her newborn child, the heir to the throne, may be linked to the corruption that has erupted throughout the land.
Sorcerers, lascars, pirates and thieves collide in this thrilling sequel to Glenda Larke's epic fantasy adventure The Lascar's Dagger.

Glenda Larke is one of my favourite fantasy writers
Glenda Larke was born in Western Australia. She obtained a degree in history and a diploma in education at the University of Western Australia and has taught English in many places across the world, including Vienna, Tunisia and Malaysia, where she lived for several decades with her husband, a Malaysian scientist. Larke's first novel, Havenstar, was published in 1998 under her married name of Glenda Noramly. She also penned The Isles of Glory trilogy, comprised of The Aware, Gilfeather and The Tainted and writes non-fiction, usually articles on conservation issues, particularly those relating to bird conservation. Larke has now settled on the coast of Western Australia, not far from an osprey nest.
