More About the Author

Tom Lloyd was born in 1979 in Berkshire. After a degree in International Relations he went straight into publishing where he still works. He never received the memo about suitable jobs for writers and consequently has never been a kitchen-hand, hospital porter, pigeon hunter, or secret agent. He lives in Oxford, isn't one of those authors who gives a damn about the history of the font used in his books and only believes in forms of exercise that allow him to hit something.

Product Description

Review

...fantasy with the same magnificence of conception, the same sense of looming presences whose purposes are not ours to apprehend. -- Time Out - Ros Kaveney

...good ideas and a suitably flawed hero. The world is beautifully realised, the battles suitably grim... -- The Guardian - John Courtney Grimwood

It gallops along with scarcely a dull moment. -- The Times

The Stormcaller shows how high the bar has been raised with its sheer vision and inventiveness -- SFX - Sandy Auden

The world that Lloyd has created seems much more real than that of most fantasy books. -- Emerald City - Cheryl Morgan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

In a land ruled by prophecy and the whims of Gods, a young man finds himself at the heart of a war he barely understands, wielding powers he may never be able to control

Like some other reviewers I found parts of this book not entirely convincing, but I was reading faster and faster, and looking up when the next book in the series is published before I had finished. Complex, enjoyable, and clearly setting the scene for a great series.

Wasn't really too sure when I bought this book having never heard of the author before.

The more I read the more I enjoyed this book, I really came to sympathise with the main characters and by the time I had finished the book I just had to buy the next one in the series.

Good read for anyone who likes fantasy.

Not an instant love but please keep reading, soon develops into one of the best and creative series of books I've read in the last few years, a series to rival Joe Abercrombie at his best.

Huge characters, epic battles, Gods, demons and vampires, what more could you possibly want ?!

I had read all Peter V Bretts books and hoped this would be in the same genre. I was not dissapointed, my only gripe was the editing. Somebody needed to read it before publishing. Don't let his put you off from a good story. I have got the second one in the series to read next.

Format: Paperback
This book does not follow any preconceived formulaes for fantasy fiction novels. Its new, its vibrant and it grips you from the very start. The world is so detailed it feels real, the fact that certain aspects, creatures none central to the plot are just accepted, written as though everyone should know about them, just makes it all the more believable. It makes the reader think in a good way. Politics and intrigues abound but don't overpower the story, aren't overly complicated so that they add lovingly to the plot rather than detract from it or take center stage. By the very nature of the key players violence is always just under the surface barely held in check. The characters have believeable flaws and fears that add depth and credibility. Equal time is given to character development, detailed and enthralling action scenes, politics, mysticism and magic. The Final result is awe inspiring, and beyond doubt the best book I have read since I first picked up david gemmels book Legend when that was first published over 10 years ago. I can not wait for its sequel.

The story centers arround Isak. Isak is a "White Eye" these are stronger faster and alot more violent versions of Humans that are especially born to be the God's representatives on earth, and defenders of the land. A wagon rat with a bleak childhood suddenly raised as Krann the chosen of the god Nartis and heir elect to Lord Bahl Lord of all the Farlan. Everyone wants to use and manipulate him. Its the age of Fulfillment and prophersy, but everyone has there own version, and everyone one of power, all the Gods try to influence it, and Isak for there own purposes. But all they end up making is something none of them intended, Isak has more power than intended but is not ruled by prophersy, or god inspired abmition, or anyone elses whim. The story is far far better than that. It is not your typical phrophercy sword and sorcery bout, it is much much better and a MUST read

Isak just grabbed my imagination from start to finish, not faint praise from this seasoned fantasy reader, five stars awarded. I cannot wait to read of his further fate as leader of the whiteyes.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book and Lloyd though young he his has managed to write a great book with one of the most fascinating protagonists I've read in a long time. This book has just about everything a Fantasy lover could ever want, an amazing cast of interesting characters, some really great magic that promises to develop well in Lloyd's later books and is truly action packed with some great battle scenes as well as some assassination and politics thrown into the mix as well. Seriously, what more could you ask for?

The great main protagonist is a boy named Isak, Isak is no ordinary boy though, he is a White Eye, one of gods chosen to rule the world of men. Isak doesn't start of as a ruler though he is a wagon brat who rides from place to place selling his wares. That is until he steps foot in the city of Tirah were the Duke, Lord Bahl who is also a White Eye recognizes that Isak is to be he successor and rule over the Farlin people. This is were Isak's story begins and were he will face constant danger from friends and foe alike, Isak must be careful also for he is not the only one in danger the friends and people who are around will face danger too, but not just from their enemies but from Isak himself, for the temper of the White Eyes is deadly to behold.

I've just ordered the second and third books in what i'm hoping will carry on to be a great series, if you like fantasy give this book a go, you'll be in for a hell of a thrill ride.
