Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasyhigh fantasy

Set in the same world as the Faithful and the Fallen quartet, the first novel in John Gwynne's Blood and Bone series, A Time of Dread, takes place one hundred years after the end of Wrath.

The Banished Lands are experiencing a new era of peace, imposed often forcibly by the angelic Ben-Elim. But this peace is fragile, and something rotten lurks at its heart.

Young soldier Rae will do anything to join the White Wings, the Ben-Elim's peace keeping force. But a shocking betrayal shakes her view of the world and she must decide where her true allegiances lie. In the west, the giantess Sig investigates demon sightings with an elite band of warriors, though the Kadoshim were defeated long before. Sig discovers signs of an uprising and black magic - but just how serious is this threat? And in the snow-bound north, Drem and his father hunt for a living. On one excursion, they discover mutilated corpses in the silent forests behind their home. Yet is it the work of a predator, or something far worse?

It seems mankind are little more than pawns in a bigger game - and in the shadows, demons bide their time, waiting to strike...
