Across the Face of the World (Fire of Heaven Book 1)

Author(s): Russell Kirkpatrick


A remarkable feat of storytelling ? a dazzling epic fantasy from a stunning new talent.

    Enter a world where for centuries darkness has been kept at bay?
From a tiny snowbound village, six men and women will begin a dangerous quest to challenge darkness, fulfil a prophecy and change the course of their world's history. For 2000 years Kannwar, the immortal Destroyer, Lord of Bhrudwo, has been planning revenge on the Most High. Cast out from Dona Mihst when he drank from the waters of the forbidden fountain of eternal life, the Arrow of the Most High was loosed against him, severing his hand from his right arm.

Mahnum has escaped the Destroyer?s prison and flees, with the Lords of Fear in pursuit. Making his way home to Loulea, Mahnum and his wife are captured. His sons, Leith and Hal, together with a small group of villagers, set off in pursuit to free Mahnum and Indrett and warn their world of the coming war.
