An epic fantasy from one of the strongest new voices in the genre. The Wild Hunt is coming - and it will only take one tear in the veil for them to succeed...
Sometimes those with the greatest potential must withstand the hardest blows.
Fate, it seems, has nothing kind in store for Gair. First his lover and now his mentor have been killed - the first by the dangerous, ambitious Savin, the second in a revolutionary uprising. Alone, and with even his magical abilities betraying him, he has only one goal left: revenge.
Far to the north, if Teia has one goal it is survival. Attempting to cross a high mountain pass in the teeth of winter is an act of desperation, but the message she carries cannot wait for spring. An invasion force is gathering behind her, and only an ancient order of knights can hold them back.
The danger is real, there are enemies in the shadows, and time is running out...
Elspeth Cooper was born and raised in Newcastle upon Tyne.
The Wild Hunt :: Series
The veil between worlds is weakening, and behind it, the Hidden Kingdom, ever-hungry for dominion over the daylight realm, is stirring. The kingdoms of the earth have grown complacent in victory, and their rulers deny the power of magic. The guardians of the Veil have grown old and few. But there are still a few who can wield the power of the Song of the Earth - can they regain their power in time to stop the wild hunt from rending the veil and overrunning the whole world?
