Summary

Defy the darkness. Defend the light.

Drem and his friends flee the battle at Starstone Lake to warn the Order of the Bright Star. They’ve witnessed horrors they’ll never forget, such as magic warping men into beasts. But worst of all, they’ve seen a demon rise from the dead - making it even more powerful. Now Fritha, the demons’ high priestess, is hunting Drem’s party.

Concealed in Forn Forest, Riv struggles to understand her half-breed heritage. She represents the warrior angels’ biggest secret, one which could break their society. And when she’s found by the Ben-Elim’s high captain, he swoops in for the kill.

As demonic forces multiply, they send a mighty war-host to overthrow the angel’s stronghold. This could decimate the fractured Ben-Elim. And their allies in the Order may be too overwhelmed to send aid - with Fritha and her monstrous beasts closing in. Like heroes of old, Drem and the Bright Star’s warriors must battle to save their land. But can the light triumph when the dark is rising?

A Time of Blood is the spectacular follow-up to John Gwynne's A Time of Dread.

A time of Blood indeed

I'm exhausted from the battles in this book, exhausted from the threat to all of the characters.
John Gwynne gets better with each book he writes.

Another fantastic book from John Gwynne

I have enjoyed all his books to date and this one does not disappoint. The characters are believable and the writing is excellent. Damian Lynch is an excellent narrator and I am always impressed at how well he creates individual and believable voices for each of the characters. I am now waiting for the next in the series. Highly recommended.
