From an exciting new voice in epic fantasy comes the beginning of a trilogy ten years in the making… THE PAGAN NIGHT by Tim Akers, to be published on 19th January 2016 by Titan Books in paperback and ebook format.
Ruling with an iron hand, the Church has eliminated the ancient pagan ways. Yet demonic gheists terrorize the land, hunted by the Inquisition, while age-old hatreds rage between the north and the south. Three heroes—Malcolm Blakekey, his son Ian, and Gwendolyn Adair—must end the bloodshed before unstoppable chaos is unleashed. Yet powerful forces oppose them from all sides, and it’s all but impossible to tell friend from foe.
The Pagan Night thrusts a diverse cast of heroic fantasy characters into a world torn apart by magic and politics, where warring factions vie for power. The perfect addition to the fantasy landscape currently enjoying a renaissance thanks to modern masters such as Brandon Sanderson, George R. R. Martin and Robin Hobb, The Pagan Night is a contemporary classic in the making.
Tim Akers was born in deeply rural North Carolina, the only son of a theologian. He is the author of the Burn Cycle by Solaris Books, as well as The Horns of Ruin, featuring Eva Forge, published by Pyr Books. Ten years in the making, The Pagan Night is his inaugural entry into epic fantasy.
