The Darkness That Comes Before : Book 1 of the Prince of Nothing Paperback / softback

Part of the Prince of Nothing series


A score of centuries has passed since the First Apocalypse and the thoughts of men have turned, inevitably, to more worldly concerns... A veteran sorcerer and spy seeks news of an ancient enemy.

A military genius plots to conquer the known world for his Emperor but dreams of the throne for himself.

The spiritual leader of the Thousand Temples seeks a Holy War to cleanse the land of the infidel.

An exiled barbarian chieftain seeks vengeance against the man who disgraced him. And into this world steps a man like no other, seeking to bind all - man and woman, emperor and slave - to his own mysterious ends.

But the fate of men - even great men - means little when the world itself may soon be torn asunder.

Behind the politics, beneath the religious fervour, a dark and ancient evil is reawakening.

After two thousand years, the No-God is returning. The Second Apocalypse is nigh. And one cannot raise walls against what has been forgotten...
