The Heretic Land Cover Reveal
We’re told never to judge a book by its cover, but when Steven Erikson is quoted as saying “One of the few fantasy authors whose new works I eagerly anticipate” on the top of a striking cover, I’m paying attention.
Tim Lebbon’s second fantasy novel, The Heretic Land, is due out this August.
AN ISLAND PRISON. AN OCEAN FULL OF MONSTERS. NO CHANCE OF ESCAPE.
Arrested by the Ald, scholar Bon Ugane and merwoman Leki Borle awake on a prison ship bound for the island of Skythe – a barren land warped and ruined by ancient conflict. Survival is tough and the colony’s original inhabitants are neither friendly nor entirely still human.
But something else waits on the island, a living weapon whose very existence is a heresy. Destroyed many years ago, it silently begins to clutch at life once more.
