First Chapter of Daughter of Blood revealed

Hachette New Zealand are delighted to announce the upcoming release of Daughter of Blood, the first chapter of which was released on today. Daughter of Bloood is the long-awaited third instalment in Dunedin-based author Helen Lowe’s David Gemmell award-winning Wall of Night series.

A failing wall, a broken shield… and an enemy that will exploit every weakness

Malian and Kalan are coming home, but already it may be too late. The Wall of Night, dangerously weakened by civil war among the Derai families that garrison it, is on the verge of failing. Everywhere their ancient enemy, the Darksworn, is on the move as the threads of an old pattern begin to tighten about Kalan, and Malian searches for answers in the fabled Shield of Heaven, which every account agrees was broken beyond repair.

In Grayharbor and in the Red Keep, a child and a young woman are caught in conflict's maw, as whispers gather around Dread Pass and a Darksworn prophecy points to Malian herself being the stake the ancient enemy will drive into the heart of the Derai Alliance.

Daughter of Blood is due for release on 27 January and will have an RRP of $21.99.
