About the Author

Sara Douglass was born in Penola, South Australia, and spent her early working life as a nurse. Rapidly growing tired of starched veils, mitred corners and irascible anaesthetists, she worked her way through three degrees at the University of Adelaide, culminating in a PhD in early modern English history. Sara Douglass currently teaches medieval history of La Trobe University, Bendigo and escapes academia through her writing.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By O. Dormon on 7 Jun. 2007
Format: Paperback
I very much enjoyed the Battleaxe series and its follow up, which I would highly reccomend to anyone thinking of reading this book.

Also I would reccomend you read Threshold by this author.

So why surprising?

This is because although this book seems to be a standalone, it is infact not, and draws on the aforementioned titles. I did not realsie this from the blurb on the back, despite having read almost all of her previous work. You do not need to have read them to enjoy this, but they will enrich the experience and if you enjoy this, and then try to read her previous works they will be ruined for you in some ways as this reveals vital plot twists from her previous books.

Very enjoyable, pick it up ( or the previos books) today !!!

Format: Paperback
Sara Douglass has again created a world rich in magic and wonder. There are a number of familiar faces in this book, and I would heartily recommend reading The Axis Trilogy, Wayfarer Redemption and two stand alone books, Threshold and Beyond the Hanging Wall, before delving into this series.

The world is much changed since we last saw it, and an unlikely band comprised of gods, witches, priesteses and kings, must come together to aid the Lord of Elcho Falling in his task. There is an evil rising in the south, threatening to destroy everything. Can they defeat it before it becomes too powerful?

My only complaint about this book is that I will have to wait so long to read the next installment!

Highly recommended.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 18 Sept. 2007
Format: Paperback
Well known for her rich embroidery of world building we see Sara return to form with this latest epic in much the same guise as her Axis trilogy. Whilst you can pick this up and begin reading without having read other within the same realm of Sara's work it is a great pity and you'll feel that you're missing something essential. This can be fixed by reading another of her novels entitled Threshold however in my personal opinion I would heavily advise reading this tale as an introduction to her work as elements and plot outlines from previous tales appear within its pages. As a new reader about to discover Sara then what I'd advise is to start from the beginning in order to get the full flavour of the tale.

I started with the Axis trilogy, then read the Wayfarer redemption trilogy and finally made my way to The Darkglass MountainTrilogy. I can recommend all three series. Sara Douglass just got better and better, and it is great to read about old friends in the previous series as you progress through them. Amazing books.
