Author Website




Long ago, The Lord Aiduel emerged from the deserts of the Holy Land, possessed with divine powers. He used these to forcibly unite the peoples of Angall, before His ascension to heaven. 

Over eight hundred years later, in a medieval world which is threatened by war and religious persecution, four young men and women begin to develop supernatural abilities. These forbidden and secret powers will shatter the lives that they have known, and will force each of them to confront the mystery of the ethereal Gate which haunts their dreams. What does the dream mean, and how is it connected to their burgeoning abilities? 

As they experience conflict, love, lust and betrayal, in lands which are being overtaken by war, they must try to stay ahead of and to survive the sinister forces which are now pursuing them. For they are being hunted…

What an amazing novel! I was gripped from reading the prologue onwards, and after that it was a late-night page-turner. What a great story!
If you like epic fantasy for adults, then this is the kind of novel you will love. Loads of gritty action, and a really interesting cast of grown-up characters. I love politics, war, and intrigue, and I haven’t been able to get enough of that since Game of Thrones ended. This book has all of that.
I read this book (which is over 700 pages) in a week, which shows just how much I enjoyed it. I am going to be recommending this novel to all of my friends, and I definitely recommend that other people read it.

I just want to put on record how much I loved this book. Great characters, loads of action, and a central mystery which runs through the entire book.

It is an epic fantasy with a story which spans war, religion and politics across a continent. I liked all four of the very different main characters, who develop supernatural abilities, and there are also some great villains.

The writing was of a very high quality, throughout.

I can’t wait to see how this series develops, and I'm already looking forward to a sequel.
