'Wonderful characters and great world-building, in Humphreys' special brand of addictive storytelling' Diana Gabaldon, author of the Outlander series

'An intriguing premise... an intricate, fast-paced story... Humphreys packs gods, deicide, warring tribes and some impressive world-building into just over 300 pages' Guardian


Three lands, peopled by humans and immortals. In Corinthium a decadent endlessly-lived elite run the world for profit and power.

But when a poor, honest solider dies, and is reborn, everything changes.

In wintry Midgarth, where immortals are revered as deities, one of them has realized that something - or someone - is killing the gods.

And in Ometepe there is only one immortal, for he has murdered every other.

Until one woman gives birth to a very special baby.

Yet there is a fourth, hidden land, where savage tribes have united under the prophecy of 'the One': a child who is neither boy nor girl. Now they plan to conquer the world.

Unless a broken soldier, a desperate mother and a crippled god can stop them . . .

  • THE BOOK BUNDLE
    Chris Humphreys skilfully weaves together several different storylines without any feeling like they're rushed over and still manages to keep the momentum of the plot going throughout the book. It's an intriguing new look at immortality in a fantasy novel, and I highly recommend it.
  • RAMBLING MADS
    Cleverly written, at times very funny, I thoroughly enjoyed this new book.
  • Grimdark Magazine
    Humphreys' plot, prose, and characters give this book a sense of quality and gravity without skimping on fun and readability
  • Conn Iggulden
    Brilliant: smoothly-written, engaging, fascinating. The kid can write. The world is wonderful - I wish I'd thought of it
  • MORNING STAR
    Instantly gripping and thoroughly unusual, this book ends on a cliffhanger which has me impatient for part two.
