The fourth in The Faithful and the Fallen series, Wrath by John Gwynne is the breathtaking, pulse-pounding conclusion to an epic series.
It‰۪s time to brave the final battle . . .
Events are coming to a climax in the Banished Lands, as the war reaches new heights. King Nathair has seized the fortress at Drassil, and now possesses three of the Seven Treasures. And with Calidus and Queen Rhin, Nathair will do anything to obtain the rest. They will allow him to open a portal to the Otherworld ‰ÛÒ so Asroth and his demon-horde can break into the Banished Lands and finally become flesh.
Meanwhile Corban has been captured by the Jotun, warrior giants who ride enormous bears into battle. His warband scattered, Corban must make new allies to survive. But can he bond with competing factions of warlike giants? Somehow he must, to counter the threat Nathair represents.
His life hangs in the balance ‰ÛÒ and with it, the fate of the Banished Lands. Truth, courage and loyalty will be tested as never before.
The Faithful and the Fallen quartet by John Gwynne is pure epic fantasy, in the vein of George R. R. Martin, and was shortlisted for the 2016 David Gemmell Legend Award. Malice, Valour, Ruin and finale Wrath chart the violent power struggles of the Banished Lands ‰ÛÒ a world mankind shares with giants, wyrms, wolves, and other more sinister beings. Young Corban dreams of becoming a great warrior and protecting his king ‰ÛÒ but as demons and angels from the Otherworld threaten to turn his home into a battlefield, the time to prove his courage will come all too soon.
