Acclaimed epic fantasy author John Gwynne returns with the first book in a new trilogy, perfect for fans of George R. R. Martin, Brandon Sanderson, and David Gemmell.

" A Time of Dread reminds me of why I became a fantasy enthusiast in the first place."—Robin Hobb

A race of warrior angels, the Ben-Elim, once vanquished a mighty demon horde. Now they rule the Banished lands, but their peace is brutally enforced.

In the south, hotheaded Riv is desperate to join the Ben-Elim's peacekeeping force, until she unearths a deadly secret.

In the west, the giantess Sig investigates demon sightings and discovers signs of an uprising and black magic.

And in the snowbound north, Drem, a trapper, finds mutilated corpses in the forests. The work of a predator, or something far darker?

It's a time of shifting loyalties and world-changing dangers. Difficult choices need to be made. Because in the shadows, demons are gathering, waiting for their time to rise...

An amazing author; I waited for this book's release after finishing his other series. A smidgen of a slow start, but I attribute that to the character development that this author is so great at! It may not of been riveting from the get go, but I definitely felt myself forming a bond with the characters and am anxiously awaiting the next!

story configuration a little confusing and the flow seemed at odds to the whole
