Product Description

Product Description

Trace: a country where magic is dying out. A country at war with itself. A country where the prophecies of the Book of the World have started to come true.

Bligh: a young foreigner, drawn irresistibly to the war in Trace. A man who has rejected religion, yet appears to be possessed by one of the six Lords Elemental.

Bligh thinks he's going mad, but if he is then it's a madness shared by others...

Gritty and passionate, Lord of Stone is a fantasy for the new millennium by the acclaimed author of The Accord and Genetopia.



'Satisfying prose ... well realised and visualised characters ... powerful and vivid portrayal of the conditions of war.'
