I reviewed Tom Lloyd's début fantasy The Stormcaller back in March 2006 and have to admit that I wasn't overly impressed with it. However, reviewing is a subjective art - if art it can be said to be - and there were plenty of glowing appraisals of Lloyd's novel from any number of respectable and respected pundits.The Stormcaller - Twilight Herald and The Grave Thief and book four in this sequence, The Ragged Man, is now published by Gollancz in both hardcover and trade paperback.

"Continuing the powerful epic that started with THE STORMCALLER; the Lord Isak is dead, his armies and entire tribe in disarray. It falls to King Emin to continue the war alone, and the Menin are only too happy to meet his challenge. In Byora, Ruhen is developing his 'Saviour' persona. The Harlequins start preaching in his name and many of the pilgrims who flock to him are recruited to be 'Children', disciples who spread Ruhen's message. All over the Land people are starting to see Ruhen as the answer to their troubles. A showdown is coming: battle lines are finally drawn and the atrocities quickly mount. The spectre of the Great War looms, but in this age the Gods cannot and will not come to King Emin's aid. With the peoples of the Land turning against Emin and his few remaining allies, their only chance for survival lies in the hands of a dead man."
