For 2000 years Kannwar, the immortal Destroyer, Lord of Bhrudwo, has been planning revenge on those who cast him out from the mortal world and his plans are now nearing fruition.

When the trader Mahnum escapes the Destroyer's prison and flees, the Lords of Fear are sent in pursuit.

He makes his way home to Loulea, but there Mahnum and his wife are captured.

His sons, Leith and Hal, together with a small group of villagers, set off in pursuit to free Mahnum and Indrett - and warn their world of the coming war.

From a tiny snowbound village, six men and women will begin a dangerous quest to challenge an ancient evil, fulfil a prophecy and change the course of their world's history.

Review by

Its a story of a powerful immortal evil and a group of people who have been chosen to fight it. There are secrets and lies in the group and no-one is sure what the motives of anyone else is. It's interesting and involved but a little typical of it's type.

Review by

'Across the Face of the World' takes you on a classic fantasy journey from humble beginnings, through arduous events, building friendships, gaining enemies and revealing secrets about the world as the quest is pursued.It is an epic fantasy tale. We start with an innocent unknown view of the world and by the end we have a partial insight into what this world holds and are starting to understand the varying cultures and inhabitants of the world.It's a long book. The pace can be slow at times as the descriptive passages provide insight into some history and reasoning of why things are. The characters are well drawn and build as the story progresses. The action can also be fast as the characters fight battles and adventure. Overall generally well paced.Well written and at times absorbing I have no hesitation in recommending this read ..
