The City of Mirrors

By Justin Cronin

  • Paperback
  • £9.99

The publishing phenomenon that began with the astonishing worldwide bestseller THE PASSAGE now comes to its epic conclusion.

In life I was a scientist called Fanning.

Then, in a jungle in Bolivia, I died.

I died, and then I was brought back to life...

Prompted by a voice that lives in her blood, the fearsome warrior known as Alicia of Blades is drawn towards to one of the great cities of The Time Before. The ruined city of New York. Ruined but not empty. For this is the final refuge of Zero, the first and last of The Twelve. The one who must be destroyed if mankind is to have a future.

What she finds is not what she's expecting.

A journey into the past.

To find out how it all began.

And an opponent at once deadlier and more human than she could ever have imagined.

'Justin Cronin's Passage trilogy is remarkable for the unremitting drive of its narrative, for the breathtaking sweep of its imagined future, and for the clear lucidity of its language. THE CITY OF MIRRORS is a thrilling finale to a trilogy that will stand as one of the great achievements in American fantasy fiction.' — Stephen King
Lyrical, towering, a worthy conclusion to what will quickly become a classic of fantasy and horror literature. — LOVE READING
'This is positively gripping... Fast-paced, chilling and utterly engrossing this will keep you on edge right until the very end. I absolutely loved it.' — WOMAN'S WAY
Compulsively readable. — NEW YORK TIMES
"A fitting end to one of the most ambition trilogies we've read in a while. Hopefully we'll see its like again soon." — SCI-FI NOW
'It is satisfying, powerful, brilliant stuff... In this day and age the word 'epic' is as overused as the word 'vampire' is mocked, but in the Passage Trilogy Justin Cronin has reclaimed them both.' — DEN OF GEEK

But chief among those names and perhaps the most dangerous of his personae is that of Nightfall, a man-or perhaps the legendary demon himself-gifted with unique powers which any sorcerer would kill to possess.Yet though Nightfall has always escaped his pursuers by moving on to new realms, new identities, and new enterprises, even the cleverest of beings must occasionally slip. And when this master of the night finally falls prey to a royal trap, he finds the consequences beyond even his ability to evade. Bound by sorcery and oath to guard and guide a young prince on his quest, Nightfall will need every trick and talent at his command to keep both himself and his idealistic young charge from death at the hands of unknown betrayers.

Egil's Saga

E. R. Eddison
Authors:
E. R. Eddison

Egil's Saga is the tale of the long and brutal life of Egil Skallagrimsson, the tenth-century warrior-poet: a morally ambiguous character who was both the composer of intricately beautiful poetry and a physical grotesque capable of staggering brutality. It recounts Egil's progression from youthful savagery to mature wisdom as he struggles to avenge his father's exile from Norway, defend his honour against the Norwegian King Erik Bloodaxe, and fight for the English King Athelstan in his battles against Scotland. Translated from Icelandic by the great fantasist, E R Eddison, and accounted by many to be the greatest of the Icelandic sagas, Egil's Saga is a fascinating depiction of a deeply human character.
