Chains of the Earth, Paperback / softback Book

Chains of the Earth Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


With its memorable characters, vivid world-building and unique magic systems, Chains of the Earth is the powerful final novel in David Mealing's Ascension Cycle - perfect for fans of Brandon Sanderson, Brent Weeks and Brian McClellan. The Divide has fallen, and the armies of the Jun swarm across the world.

The ancient compact of Life and Death has been breached and Sarine and her companions find themselves overwhelmed, assaulted on all sides by Death's champions. As the cities of the New and Old Worlds burn, Sarine finds herself isolated, defeated, and alone.

Yet there is hope. If she can learn the true nature of the magic of the Soul of the World, she can make a final stand against Death, to challenge him and remove his grip on the world's heart. To find the truth, she must journey among peoples excluded from the ancient compact, rallying their strength, wielding every strain of magic in the world in a final battle between what is, and what might be.
