Two heroes, one soul, and all the world to conquer – the first book in The Broken Well Trilogy is ‘the stuff of fantasy writers’ fantasies. An epic, enthralling, towering triumph.’ (AurealisXpress)
For a millennium the lands of Kainordas and Fenvarrow have been at war, ever since the gods of shadow and light broke the Great Well of Souls. In the absence of victory, they have settled into an uneasy stalemate – until a prophecy foretells of a child who will finally break the balance. Each side races to find the child, but when they do, a battle ensues with unexpected consequences – in a terrible accident, the child’s very soul is ripped in two.
Prophecy’s Ruin subverts cliches of the genre in weird, original ways, and stars a colourful cast of paranoid warriors, undead mages, psychopathic goblins, indestructible butterflies, shape-changing swamp monsters and an evil talking bird.
