The rave reviews for John Wright's science fiction trilogy, The Golden Age, hail his debut as the most important of the new century. Now, in The Last Guardian of Everness, this exciting and innovative writer proves that his talents extend beyond SF, as he offers us a powerful novel of high fantasy set in the modern age. Young Galen Waylock is the last watchman of the dream-gate beyond which ancient evils wait, hungry for the human world. For a thousand years, Galen's family stood guard, scorned by a world which dismissed the danger as myth. Now, the minions of Darkness stir in the deep, and the long, long watch is over. Galen's patient loyalty seems vindicated. That loyalty is misplaced. The so-called Power of Light is hostile to modern ideas of human dignity and liberty. No matter who wins the final war between darkness and light, mankind is doomed either to a benevolent dictatorship or a malevolent one. And so Galen makes a third choice: the sleeping Champions of Light are left to sleep. Galen and his companions take the forbidden fairy-weapons themselves. Treason, murder, and disaster follow. The mortals must face the rising Darkness alone. An ambitious and beautifully written story, The Last Guardian of Everness is an heroic adventure that establishes John Wright as a significant new fantasist. It is just the start of a story that will conclude in the companion volume, Mists of Everness. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

"David Gemmell tells a tale of very real adventure, the stuff of true epic fantasy." --R.A.

Only the last guardian, Jon Shannow, the legendary pistoleer, could shut the deadly portal. But to accomplish this he would have to find the shining Sword of God, said to be floating among the clouds in the perilous lands beyond the wall, where beasts walked like men and worship a dark goddess. As Shannow embarked on his impossible quest, demons gathered in wait. And--somewhere--a golden-haired woman was dreaming of blood . . .

Isabella Forster is a happy child living an idyllic life with her Great Grandmother Edith and her mother Bethany in the beautiful little village of Bamburgh on the North East coast of Northumberland. At the age of 12 she is diagnosed with a brain tumour; she and her mother must leave Bamburgh for the grey streets of Newcastle to begin Isabella's lifesaving treatment. After her recovery, the next six years returned to 'normal', but just as she was about to start at University her mother mysteriously disappears, leaving Isabella alone with no one other than her Great Granny Edith. A few years later Isabella finds out that her mother is alive, trapped in the year 1333, accused of being a witch and sentenced to burn at the stake. Bethany reaches out through the mists of time to her daughter asking her to cross the divide and save her. Edith knows the threat is serious and that Isabella cannot do it alone and hires a handsome ex SAS soldier to be her bodyguard, Richard Watson, who is fighting demons of his own from his army days in Afghanistan. Can he be persuaded to believe that there is such a thing as time travel and help the feisty Isabella defend the Gateway and travel back in time to stop those who would seize power for their own greedy ambitions and change the future. Isabella was unaware that she came from a long line of Guardians; protectors of an ancient Gateway which allows travel between future and past times. Edith knew that one day she needed to be told, the truth had to come out, keeping secrets was never a good idea, and her family had a cellar full. As the new Guardian, Isabella and her bodyguard are given magical rings to help defend and protect the past from the secrets of the future; time is running out to save and preserve the equilibrium of both worlds from evil and those who would abuse the Gateway. It is Isabella's destiny to take over the role as the Guardian and must travel to 14th century Bamburgh with Richard; their mission is to stop those who would destroy the delicate timeline and seal the Gateway forever.

“David Gemmell tells a very real adventure, the stuff of true epic fantasy.”—New York Times bestselling author R. A. Salvatore John Shannow, The Jerusalem Man, lived in a world that had toppled on its axis. Civilization had been replaced by ruthlessness and savagery. Relentless in his quest for peace, Shannow followed a path that led only to bloodshed and sorrow. Abaddon, the Lord of the Pit, sought to plunge mankind into a new Satanic era. His Hellborn army spewed forth from the Plague Lands with an unholy force stemming from human sacrifice. For it was the blood of innocents that fueled the corrupted Sipstrassi Stones of Power—the source of Abaddon's might. But the Hellborn made a fatal mistake—they took the woman who had stolen Shannow's heart. He would move Heaven and Earth to save her or he would die trying. “Gemmell . . . keeps the mythic currents crackling.”—Publishers Weekly
