Advent Trilogy 2
By James Treadwell
Magic has returned and the world is returning to its natural ways in the second in the Advent trilogy by critically-acclaimed Treadwell.
I am everything no longer forgotten.
I banish forgetting.
My seed has grown and become prophecy.
Truth walks the world above.
Magic is risen to the world once more.
In Cornwall, they have seen it rise: in an angel of death and endless, unseasonal snow.
Across the ocean, on a remote Canadian island, the blood and offerings and smoke of England seem nothing more than distant rumours of hysteria.
Until the girl disappears. And the whale comes. And The Plague spreads.
And nothing is as it was before.
James Treadwell was born, brought up and educated within a mile of the Thames, and has spent much of his life further reducing the distance between him and the river. He studied and taught for more than a decade near the crossing at Folly Bridge, Oxford, and now lives within sight of the Tideway in West London.

James's style draws you in . . . it's alive with vile creatures, sweeping mysteries and the best-written female characters in young adult fiction. A unique voice — ImagineFX
The second novel in an astonishingly imaginative fantasy trilogy . . . If you're looking for a story that's been written well, is complex and has interesting characters, you have just found what you've been looking for. ANARCHY is all of these things and more - it's a genuine masterpiece of literary fantasy. — Rising Shadow
This is a brilliant sequel, exploring the themes of its predecessor more deeply whilst broadening the vistas of the world. If Advent was the stone dropping in a pool, Anarchy charts the ripples spreading out from it in ever-widening circles, changing the face of the world. Lyrical, mysterious and uncomfortable, ANARCHY is never less than a riveting read. Who knows where the journey will take us next? I, for one, can't wait to find out. — Geek Syndicate

Nothing short of magical.
