Five hundred years ago a huge force defeated an evil, supernaturally powerful tyrant who terrorized and ravaged those who cowered under his lash. Now, terrible news from the north suggests that someone or some thing is once again preying upon the northern lands, threatening to once again darken the lives of those whose forebears still remember the horrific past.
Now, a small, motley band faces a daunting challenge. Led by a brave warrior and a visionary priest, they have finally reached the land to the north. They have seen wonders and endured terrifying experiences, barely escaping from a dizzying series of perils, magical and otherwise. But the direst perils lie before them as they approach the evil that has risen again, its dread power terrorizing and enslaving all who oppose it. Finally, the Wanderer, fated to face the ultimate test, will confront his destiny. A world and its trembling masses await the outcome.
Fresh and powerfully told, this epic will satisfy fantasy readers as few others have done.

David Bilsborough was born in Malvern, England. He currently lives in Asia.From Publishers Weekly:
The generic plot of this slow-starting sequel to 2007's The Wanderer's Tale does little to engage readers. After the confusion of a climactic battle, Bolldhe, the warrior destined to battle the resurrected evil lord Drauglir, grimly resumes his journey north to battle Drauglir at Vaagenfjord Maw. Despite being the ostensible hero, Bolldhe is quickly eclipsed by his fellow fighter Nibulus, whose evolution into a true leader gives him top billing among their companions. The pace accelerates promisingly when the warlord of Wrythe's army and Nibulus's allies converge upon the darkly menacing Maw, but the ponderous and unwieldy prose frequently detracts from the action. British colloquialisms like knackered and modern objects such as gas masks and strangely shaped polyhedral dice (used for role-playing games, no less!) are jarring in the epic fantasy setting, and egalitarian fans may seethe over women being repeatedly called breeders. This disappointing second installment contains the same shortcomings as the first. (June)
