AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Eleven Domains were forged in blood a thousand years ago. The blood is about to flow again. Bramble is as wild as the animals she follows deep into the forest near her village. Her dark eyes betray her heritage - she's a Traveller, one of the despised original people of the Domains. And for as long as she can remember, she has wanted to take to the Road like her grandfather. But the gods who dwell near the alders always say no ... In Turvite, where the ghosts drift along dark cobbled streets, Ash must leave his parents, and the Road, to begin an apprenticeship with the only person who will accept a Traveller - the scheming, yet irrestible, Doronit. But the gods who linger in the gloomy square have other plans for him ... From different ends of the Eleven Domains, death casts Bramble and Ash on journeys across valleys and mountains, deep into themselves and the dark history of their ancestors.'

Notes

  • Dedication: To Stephen
  • Epigraph: Thus said the Well of Secrets:
    You want a prophecy? Fine. Here it is. 'The dead will be reborn, the quick and the quickened will both taste blood, the killers will be brought together to confront the killed. The voices of the dead will echo through the world, and the evil dead shall triumph over the evil living.' If we're lucky.
