Their studymaster joked that the twin sons of the Lord of Tor Anrok, Gilead and Galeth, were so close that they were one son in two bodies. After Galeth was killed rescuing his brother from a band of vicious bandits: Gilead, shadowfast warrior and last of the line of Tor Anrok, pursued his brother’s killer in a quest that lasted ten years and cost him all he had. Now he wanders the land, wielding his brother’s blade against the damned monsters and evil men who oppose him, hoping that somehow he will fill the void left by the other’s death. For Gilead has learnt first-hand that, while there may be satisfaction in vengeance, there is no peace.

I’ve been waiting for the release of Gilead’s Blood ever since the first Gilead short story appeared in Inferno! magazine. Of course, there wasn’t a title back then but I always knew that this character warranted so much more than a single story. For me it’s the intelligence and the maturity of the concept that make it a real winner. An elf lord, driven by an implacable need for vengeance, sacrifices all else that he is for the sake of his just retribution. When that vengeance is satisfied he is left hollow, and has to struggle to recapture the meaning in his life... enthralling stuff. All that and the novel has one of the most perfect covers of our range, strikingly encapsulating both the bloody path of his retribution and the gaunt desolation of his present existence.
