Overview

From the Sunday Times bestselling and award-winning author of the Nevernight Chronicle, comes this masterful new series. Featuring the darkly beautiful illustrations of Bon Orthwick (@monolimeart). 'This book is bloody brilliant' - V.E Schwab, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of THE INVISIBLE LIFE OF ADDIE LARUE It has been twenty-seven long years since the last sunrise. For nearly three decades, vampires have waged war against humanity; building their eternal empire even as they tear down our own. Now, only a few tiny sparks of light endure in a sea of darkness. Gabriel de Leon, half man, half monster and last remaining silversaint - a sworn brother of the holy Silver Order dedicated to defending the realm from the creatures of the night - is all that stands between the world and its end. Now imprisoned by the very monsters he vowed to destroy, the last silversaint is forced to tell his story. A story of legendary battles and forbidden love, of faith lost and friendships won, of the Wars of the Blood and the Forever King and the quest for humanity's last remaining hope: The Holy Grail.

Reviews

'A gothic bloodbath that will leave any reader breathless. The story is a vast apocalyptic canvass, reminiscent of Justin Cronin's THE PASSAGE or even Stephen King's THE STAND, yet Kristoff's work stands on its own ruthless merit as the opening gambit of a richer tale yet to unfold. I can't wait to return again to this rich, lush, and bloody world. Until then, read this book now!' - James Rollins, No.1 NEW YORK TIMES author of THE LAST ODYSSEY and THE STARLESS CROWN 'A fine crafted tale, the pieces as meticulously interlocked as fine woodwork. A chilling new take on vampire lore and those who must battle that darkness. EMPIRE OF THE VAMPIRE looks fearlessly at how ruthless Good must become when confronted with unrelenting Evil' - Robin Hobb, SUNDAY TIMES and NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Praise for The Nevernight Chronicle: 'If you love Robin Hobb or George R.R. Martin, you will adore NEVERNIGHT' - STARBURST 'With a delicate balance of the ancient and the magical, this tense and brutal tale is unflinching, thrilling and satisfying' - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY 'Joins lyrical high fantasy, Pratchett-like humour and unflinching descriptions of violence . . . something special' - SCIFI NOW
