BattleAxe (The Axis Trilogy #1) - Sara Douglass5.72

Published in the US as The Wayfarer Redemption.

The acclaimed international bestseller in a fresh new jacket.

A thousand years ago the Acharites drove the Forbidden from their land. Now strange sightings along Achar’s northern border foreshadow their return. The barbaric tribes of the Ravensbund are pouring south with tales of fearsome beings who feed on the terror of their prey.

Axis, bastard son of the dead Princess Rivkah, is sent to the battlefront of Gorkenfort with his elite Axe-Wielders. Once there, he must hand over command to his hated half-brother, Borneheld. But travelling north, Axis falls in love with Faraday – Borneheld’s bethrothed, and meets two priests who challenge the very essence of his beliefs.

The Sentinels walk the land, the TreeFriend has been found, and the people of the Plough, the Wing and the Horn must set aside their differences and unite under one leader against the evil rising in the North...

‘Sara Douglass has the breadth of vision necessary to create sweeping epics and the storyteller’s gift that makes readers love her.’ – Locus
