– Fantasy Faction
Merciless. Murderer. Monster. He has been called many names in his time.
Built for war and nothing else, he has witnessed every shade of violence humans know, and he has wrought his own masterpieces with their colours. He cared once, perhaps, but far too long ago. He is bound to his task, dead to the chaos he wreaks for his masters.
Now, he has a new master to serve and a new war to endure. In the far reaches of the Realm, Hartlund tears itself in two over coin and crown. This time he will fight for a boy king and a general bent on victory.
Beneath it all he longs for change. For something to surprise him. For an end to this cycle of warfare.
Every fighter has a last fight. Even one made of stone.
North, is where the battle will take place.
North, is where Farden must go.
But to death, to glory, or to both?
The Arka have chosen their champion, and now he must lead them to the top of the world - The Spine, where the black mountains belch fire, and where the battle against cataclysm will take place upon the ice.
As they travel north in a warship clad in iron, the Krauslung they leave behind is crumbling. Not under the onslaught of the girl and her daemons, but from within, under the force of greed and poisonous ambition. It seems there are too many battles to fight.
Now, with the Sirens silent, the frozen north in uproar, and the responsibility mounting, Emaneska’s champion must face a choice. Can he tread the tunnels of Hel to save the world? To save a woman more ghost than alive? To claim the armour he has always longed for? For salvation lies in the hands of a Knight fifteen-hundred years dead, and in the red-gold armour of a certain mage.
Salvation lies with Scalussen.
Dead Stars – Part Two is the final book in The Emaneska Series. For more books by Ben Galley, follow Ben onTwitter @BenGalley, on Facebook /BenGalleyAuthor, or at bengalley.com.
Epic, dark, and brutal right down to the very last pixel, this graphic novel tells the tale of Farden - Emaneska's favourite mage - as he unravels a plot to bring the world to its knees. Just think Lord of The Rings meets Sin City, and you'll be on the right track. With words by Ben Galley and art from Mike Shipley, it's a roller-coaster of a graphic novel.
ABOUT THE WRITTEN:
The Written is the first volume in The Emaneska Series and the debut book of young UK author Ben Galley:
His name is Farden.
They whisper that he’s dangerous.
Dangerous is only the half of it.
Something has gone missing from the libraries of Arfell. Something very old, and something very powerful. Five scholars are now dead, a country is once again on the brink of war, and the magick council is running out of time and options.
Entangled in a web of lies and politics and dragged halfway across icy Emaneska and back, Farden must unearth a secret even he doesn’t want to know, a secret that will shake the foundations of his world. Dragons, drugs, magick, death, and the deepest of betrayals await.
Welcome to Emaneska.
On murmure qu’il est dangereux.
Dangereux est encore loin de la vérité…
Un objet a disparu des bibliothèques d’Arfell – un objet très ancien, et très puissant.
Cinq érudits ont trouvé la mort. Le pays est à nouveau au bord de la guerre, et le Conseil de la magie voit sa marge de manœuvre réduire de jour en jour.
Pris au piège d’une toile de mensonges et d’intrigues politiques, Farden sera traîné d’un bout à l’autre des terres glacées d’Emaneska. Il devra percer un secret qu’il aurait préféré ne jamais connaître, un secret qui ébranlera les fondations de son monde. Le feu des dragons et les artifices de la drogue jalonneront son chemin, au fil d’une aventure marquée par la magie, la mort et la plus cruelle des trahisons.
Vaste à vous couper le souffle, sombre à vous glacer les sangs, dangereux et mystérieux, L’Escrit vous laissera avec l’envie dévorante de découvrir le prochain volet…
Bienvenue à Emaneska
