Battle the dark, reclaim the world.
John Gwynne studied and lectured at Brighton University. He's been in a rock 'n' roll band, playing the double bass, travelled the USA and lived in Canada for a time. He is married with four children and lives in Eastbourne, running a small family business rejuvenating vintage furniture. His debut novel, Malice, won the David Gemmell Morningstar Award for Best Debut.
A great read that accelerates the pace and goes one up on
its excellent predecessor. The characters also grow with the
story, finding peril at every turn and few clear choices.
