Long ago when the Earth was flat, beautiful, indifferent Gods lived in the airy Upperearth realm above; curious, passionate demons lived in the exotic Underearth realm below; and mortals were relegated to exist in the middle. Azhrarn, Lord of the Demons and the Darkness, was the one who ruled the night, and many mortal lives were changed because of his cruel whimsy. And yet, Azhrarn held inside his demon heart a profound mystery which would change the very fabric of the Flat Earth forever.

This is almost impossible to get hold of as a book

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 12-04-13

I read the second book in the series when I was 17 and became obcessed with getting hold of the rest of them. Until I found them on Audible 12 years later I had no luck!



But this book is a treat if you like dark adult fantasy. The themes are put forward with a sensitive abivulance to the subject of morality and the sensuality of the writing is brought out more than I had thought possible by Susan Deurden's reading of it. The audiobook is hypnotic and drops you into a fully realised fantasy world inhabited by apathetic gods, alien demons and the mortals who are their pawns.
