Book Description

Arrested by the Ald, scholar Bon Ugane and merwoman Leki Borle find themselves on a prison ship bound for the island of Skythe - a barren land and the site of long-ago wars.

Warped and ruined by the ancient conflict, survival on the island is tough and its original inhabitants are neither friendly nor entirely still human. But something else waits on the island, a living weapon whose very existence is a heresy. Destroyed many years ago, it silently begins to clutch at life once more.

Product Description


Smartly-written and briskly-paced, The Heretic Land is one half prison break, one half war story. The combination makes for an entertaining read, and Lebbon successfully stuffs his dark fantasy island with inventive and incredible ideas (SFX)

Lebbon has created a startlingly authentic world, a parallel universe in which the lineaments of our equally strange reality - its creatures, its mysteries, its brooding religions - stand out in stark relief (DAILY MAIL)

Book Description

A brand-new dark fantasy novel from New York Times-bestselling author Tim Lebbon

More About the Author

I'm a New York Times-bestselling horror, thriller and fantasy writer from a little village in South Wales. I've written over 30 novels, including several in collaboration with Christopher Golden, as well as dozens of novellas and hundreds of short stories.

My latest novel, THE HUNT, is my first thriller. Lee Child calls it 'A great thriller ... breathless all the way.'

I've won four British Fantasy Awards, a Bram Stoker Award and a Scribe, as well as being shortlisted for the prestigious World Fantasy and Shirley Jackson Awards. A movie of my short story Pay The Ghost, starring Nicolas Cage, is due for release in 2015, and I have several other movie projects in development. I love running, biking and swimming, and often try to put them all together in long-distance triathlons. I raced my first Ironman in 2013.

I've also written a handful of tie-in projects connected to the Alien, Predator, Star Wars and Hellboy universes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous Worlds.... 31 Dec. 2012
My brother bought me this book for Xmas, and I read it over the next few days. Am not going to go into the main characters and plots, but suffice to say if you like science fantasy dark and gritty then this book is for you. I tried to compare this writer to others in the same genre but failed at this. Tim Lebanon has his own style and voice, and I have just purchased 2 more books by him on the strength of this excellent read. Give him a try you will not be disappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lean and Mean 18 Oct. 2012
Great fun- Lebbon has taken what he did brilliantly with Echo City and crafted a horror thriller which works as an edge of your seat chase story, with gods, super soldiers, engines, assassins, giant underwater monsters and lots and lots of violence.

All of this is written brilliantly too- it never feels gratuitous and the plot whips along at a good pace.

To my mind, this is even better than Echo City- and that was a great book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't stand out for me 6 Aug. 2012
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
I love a good fantasy tale so when you get one that blends elements that should make a cracking story, I'm a reader that tends to get annoyed if I feel unfilled. Whilst part of this book had feelings that were reminiscent of Steven Eriksons Chained God, others brought a feeling of Chateau D'If from the Count of Monte Cristo. Add to this some monsters and an enclosed population and all in it should have been something spectacular.

Sadly for me I felt it that the principle character wasn't as defined as he could have been, he didn't move me into really caring for his fate and when the other elements started to come together it left me thinking that it was a mishmash of things I've seen before. Don't get me wrong, the concept was solid and of course the prose was decent but overall due to these failings, it isn't a title that for me stood out against the masses out there.

This was my first Tim Lebbon book and was not quite sure what to expect and I'm sorry to say the experience was not good. I gave up half way through. It was slow and confusing.
