Product description


"Greenwood's previous work has included plenty of game-related fiction... The originality and wit he displayed in that work is even more evident in this saga, and indeed there is little that is generic about any aspect of either this book or the series of which it is a part."


Using a Micheneresque approach to chronicle the significant events and adventures of Aglitta history and the Silvertree clan, Greenwood creates a magical saga where purveyors of magic form an uneasy alliance with barbaric warlords in defence against non- human shapeshifters and practitioners of the dark arts. In the Band of Four series we were briefly introduced to the Silent House, the ancestral estate of the Silver- tree clan. This dungeon-like stronghold acts a a battery of enscorcellment and is powered by the family curse and all those trapped within. The Silent House itself becomes more than an armed stronghold-it becomes a living thing, dedicated to protecting its lord, drawing on his family's powers, and morphing to attack and protect invaders. But by doing so the house perpetuates a curse where the defended become the trapped, not just for now, but for all eternity. Filled with sorcery and battles between the dead and the undead, as well as plots of sinister deception and insidious manipulation, The Silent House is the first epic chronicle of the land and people of Aglirta.
