Hardback book in dustjacket. Book and dustjacket in fine new unread condition with some shelfwear. Signed 'Tom Lloyd', first lined "In the dark corners of the night, he dreams of the secret palace by the shore" and publication dated 16/3/6 by the author directly on the title page. Very scarce to find this book signed directly on the title page and first lined as well. Most copies were signed via a less-appealing publisher bookplate. This is one of a very few copies where the author's name and the book title were printed upside down on the spine: the very first state of this book and incredibly scarce thus. A small first print run makes this a very collectible item.
Synopsis
Isak is a white-eye, feared and despised in equal measure. Trapped in a life of poverty, hated and abused by his father, Isak dreams of escape, but when his chance comes, it isn't to a place in the army as he'd expected. Instead, the Gods have marked him out as heir-elect to the brooding Lord Bahl, the Lord of the Farlan. Lord Bahl is also a white-eye, a genetic rarity that produces men stronger, more savage and more charismatic than their normal counterparts. Their magnetic charm and brute strength both inspires and oppresses others. Now is the time for revenge, and the forging of empires. With mounting envy and malice, the men who would themselves be king watch Isak, chosen by Gods as flawed as the humans who serve them, as he is shaped and moulded to fulfil the prophecies that are encircling him like scavenger birds. The various factions jostle for the upper hand, and that means violence, but the Gods have been silent for too long and that violence is about to spill over and paint the world the colour of spilled blood and guts and pain and anguish .
