About the Book

If you pick a fight with Shroud, Lord of the Dead, you had better ensure your victory, else death will mark only the beginning of your suffering.

A book giving its wielder power over the dead has been stolen from a fellowship of mages that has kept the powerful relic dormant for centuries. The thief, a crafty, power-hungry necromancer, intends to use the Book of Lost Souls to resurrect an ancient race and challenge Shroud for dominion of the underworld. Shroud counters by sending his most formidable servants to seize the artifact at all cost.

However, the god is not the only one interested in the Book, and a host of other forces converge, drawn by the powerful magic that has been unleashed. Among them is a reluctant Guardian who is commissioned by the Emperor to find the stolen Book, a troubled prince who battles enemies both personal and political, and a young girl of great power, whose past uniquely prepares her for an encounter with Shroud. The greatest threat to each of their quests lies not in the horror of an undead army but in the risk of betrayal from those closest to them. Each of their decisions comes at a personal cost and will not only affect them, but also determine the fate of their entire empire.
The first of an epic swords & sorcery fantasy series, Marc Turner’s When the Heavens Fall features gritty characters, deadly magic, and meddlesome gods

About the Author
Marc Turner

Marc Turner was born in Toronto, Canada, but grew up in England. He graduated from Lincoln College, Oxford University, in 1996 with a BA (Hons) in law, and subsequently joined a top-ten law firm in the City of London. Following the sale of his debut epic fantasy novel, he started writing full-time.

 

When the Heavens Fall, the first book in the Chronicles of the Exile series, was published to rave reviews in 2015, and it was followed by Dragon Hunters and the award-nominated Red Tide. In 2016, Marc was shortlisted for the Best Newcomer Award by the British Fantasy Society. He has since contributed to various fantasy anthologies alongside some of the biggest names in the genre.

 

Why writing? Because it is the only work he knows where daydreaming isn’t frowned upon, and because he has learned from bitter experience that he cannot not write. He writes fast-paced novels with a liberal sprinkling of humour, peopled by characters that stay in the memory.

 

His latest novel, a psychological crime thriller, is currently out on submission in the UK and US.

 

Marc lives in Durham, England, with his wife and son.
