Including The Pilgrim, Shadow and World’s End, the Pendulum Trilogy is a visionary work of imaginative fantasy from one of genre fiction’s most exciting new voices.

In Levaal, the world between worlds, a dark age has come. The gods struggle to contain eight terrible dragons, restless in their sky prisons, while Vous, the people’s ‘friend and lord’, descends into madness.

Now they will discover why some doors should not be opened . . .
