Advent: Advent Trilogy 1

James Treadwell

5 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Adventure, Fantasy

Magic is returning - and the world will be utterly changed. The first of a debut fantasy trilogy by the most exciting new talent of the decade.

For centuries it has been locked away. Lost beneath the sea. Warded from earth, air, water, fire, spirits, thought and sight.
