As two armies stand poised for the final battle of a millennium-long war, the immortal, charismatic leader known only as the Traveller reflects on what led him, long ago, to begin this war of liberation. Amid the alarms and encounters of a sleepless night, he thinks back over three thousand years of life: the loves and hates, the victories and disasters, the moral dilemmas-and the lost love he still mourns. As battle is joined, the tale has a few more twists to throw at the Traveller.

""This is an elegant novel, poetically written, with just the right mix of pathos and humour, and the Traveller's ability to mock himself ensures it never spills over into mawkish sentiment...The supporting cast of characters are well-drawn, but the Traveller rightfully dominates the story."" - Joanne Hall,

I'm a big fantasy and SF fan. Some of my favorite authors include Lynn Flewelling, Glenda Larke, Robin Hobbs, CJ Cherryh, George RR Martin and Brandon Sanderson. I really enjoyed this book and hope we see more from this author in the future. The narrative style is unusual--an enigmatic character called the Traveler is recalling his life and loves the night before he goes into battle against his ancient enemy, the Demon Queen. The tale is told in first person, an approach that gives the tale intimacy and which allows the reader to connect with the protagonist. But it's epic in scope as well. It's well written and very worth reading.
