Elspeth Cooper (Ellie) was born and raised in Newcastle upon Tyne. Ever since she was read IVANHOE as a bedtime story, she has been fascinated by storytelling. Now her lifelong fascination with language has been put into practice with SONGS OF THE EARTH, her first novel, and the first of The Wild Hunt series.
SONGS OF THE EARTH is the most compelling debut fantasy novel since Patrick Rothfuss first hit the shelves four years ago, with the stunning THE NAME OF THE WIND. Gair is under a death sentence. He can hear music - music with power - and in the Holy City that means only one thing: he's a witch, and he's going to be burnt at the stake. Even if he could escape, the Church Knights and their witchfinder would be hot on his heels while his burgeoning power threatesn to tear him apart from within. There is no hope ...none, but a secretive order, themselves persecuted almost to destruction. If Gair can escape, if he can master his own growing, dangerous abilities, if he can find the Guardians of the Veil, then maybe he will be safe. Or maybe he'll discover that his fight has only just begun.
