In a time when the world was ravaged by chaos, one kingdom remains; ordered, isolated, protected. Then Tabitha Serannon awakens an ancient power and the world begins to change. She is hunted for her talent. The Shadowcasters whisper in her ears as their evil closes around her. Soon the Riddler walks beside her, but is he on her side? She has a moment to learn the magic before she loses her grasp of the Lifesong, but the path she must follow leads into Darkness; into terror, treachery and desire. To survive she must give voice to a music that she hardly understands, an enchantment that will echo through all time. (This book is Part One of the two-part edition)

About the Author:

Greg Hamerton hopes that writers have the best chance of learning magic, because they know how to spell. He lives near London, close to the airport so he can escape should the island go under due to global climate change. He is an outdoors enthusiast and enjoys soaring over clouds and getting lost on his paraglider. "My primary-school was artistic. We made up stories. We painted things. We acted out Norse Mythology. It was great, and it's probably the reason I'm a writer. I love reading all kinds of fantasy, and have been influenced by the wonderful writing of Charles de Lint, Robin Hobb, Stephen Donaldson, Robert Jordan and Terry Pratchett." The Riddler's Gift is the first novel in the Tale of the Lifesong cycle, followed by Second Sight.
