A kingdom in danger. An ancient weapon. And a cryptic secret that could change everything. The closing lines of a farewell poem, written centuries ago by the last great king of the old world, might prove to be more than it seems: The world and all its light shall fade; I'll stay with her beneath the shade And wait until the world's remade... Something is creeping at the fringes of the world. Is it just the talk of frightened villagers? Or is it something more? Enter the entirely new fantasy world of The Banished Lands! Now, for the first time, the complete series is on sale in one collected volume. The Banished Lands combines the best of epic fantasy, fairy tale, mythology, poetry, romance and mystery. If you love a good old-fashioned story, The Banished Lands will deliver on your expectations.
