About this Event

About the Book

The war is over, but something is rotten in the state of Eidyn.

With a ragged peace in place, demons burn farmlands, violent Reivers roam the wilds and plague has spread beyond the Black Meadows. The country is on its knees.

In a society that fears and shuns him, Aranok is the first magically-skilled draoidh to be named King's Envoy.

Now, charged with restoring an exiled foreign queen to her throne, he leads a group of strangers across the ravaged country. But at every step, a new mystery complicates their mission.

As bodies drop around them, new threats emerge and lies are revealed, can Aranok bring his companions together and uncover the conspiracy that threatens the kingdom?

Strap in for this twisted fantasy road trip from award-winning author Justin Lee Anderson.

Praise for The Lost War:

"Genuinely surprised and delighted me. Bravo!" Anna Stephens, author of Godblind

"Anderson has created something outstanding here. The Lost War is easily one of the biggest surprises of the year." Novel Notions

"This book is a roller coaster. When you get off it your legs might be shaky. Don't worry. It’s normal. Read the book. Take the ride." EsmeWeatherwax

"Earth-shakingly fabulous. The last few chapters made me laugh with glee at the pure wickedness of Justin's writing. Simply awesome!!" Shalini's Books & Reviews

"Gritty and meaty and full of adventure. Highly recommend!" Wopsywoobookblog
