“A richly told tale of strange magic, dark treachery, and conflicting loyalties, set in a well realized world.”
—Robin Hobb, author of Dragon Keeper
An award-winning poet and acclaimed author of Young Adult fiction, Helen Lowe now brings us The Heir of Night—the first book in her four-volume Wall of Night series, a brilliant new epic fantasy saga of war, prophecy, betrayal, history, and destiny. A thrilling excursion into a richly imagined realm of strife and sacrifice, where the fate of a dangerously divided world rests in the hands of one young woman, The Heir of Night is a fantasy classic in the making, sure to stand alongside the much beloved works of J.R.R. Tolkien, Robin McKinley, and Guy Gavriel Kay.

Praise For The Heir of Night: The Wall of Night Book One (Wall of Night series #1)…
— Robin Hobb
“Lowe’s first novel, a series opener, calls to mind the inchoate evil of Barbara Hambly’s classic ‘Darwath Trilogy’ and reinvigorates the epic fantasy with appealing characters and a richly detailed world.”
