Our heroes have finally escaped from the Roq and are on their way to meet with the Sharai tribes as the djinni ordered. But travel through Outremer is not without dangers. The desert is a deadlier foe than any man.

Then there is the matter of Marron, who is now host to a powerful spirit. He has become what the Sharai call the Ghost Walker, a mystical hero who, it is said, will one day lead them to glory. As such he has attracted the attention of the most fanatical of Sharai warriors. These are men who devote their lives to perfecting their fighting skills, the legendary Sand Dancers.

Praise for the Outremer series

“Along the way there are all the adventures a discerning fantasy reader could wish for and Brenchley’s concise, muscular prose makes the story flow, free of genre clichés” — SFX

“Brenchley’s grasp of his colourful narrative never falters, and his descriptive powers are exemplary.” — Orbit

“Chaz Brenchley’s striking new epic fantasy series [is] a revelation. The atmosphere is so well described you can almost taste it.” — Starburst

“Brenchley the horror novelist and Brenchley the fantasist come together in perfect alignment…the kind of dark, painful power rarely seen in the literature of heroic fantasy.” — Cemetery Dance

“If you like slow tension and intrigue and well-developed world-building, this is recommended. Brenchley’s prose is crisp and descriptive and his characterizations are nicely done. The last quarter of the book finally cuts loose and the ending left me wanting to see what will happen next” — Sigma

“Brenchley has created a fascinating alternate-world version of the Crusader kingdom and has set up a bunch of interesting plot strands. The addition of Arabian Nights-style magic is a very clever touch that promises much to come.” — Emerald City

“As with all Brenchley’s novels, the prose is beautifully crafted and a joy to read…I can’t wait to see what happens next.” — Northern Review

“Compelling reading” — Locus
