The Gates of Dawn by Robert Newcomb
For three hundred years, Eutracia was a kingdom at peace. Then a horror from the past, long thought vanquished, returned to wreak dreadful revenge. While the war against the Sorceresses of the Coven was won, victory came at a terrible price: the king and queen dead, the wizards’ council decimated, the land scarred and lawless. And Prince Tristan, forced by the Coven to turn his hand against his own and kill his father, is now a wanted man.
In underground labyrinths that once bustled with life, the fugitive prince, together with his twin sister and her infant daughter, the wizards Wigg and Faegan, take refuge. They are burdened with the daunting task of rebuilding Eutracia, however it seems evil has not yet had its fill of this ravaged land.
Apprentice wizards, dispatched to hunt down the last remaining servants of the Coven, have fallen victim to foul beings that can only have been created out of hate. And, inexplicably, the sacred source of all magic begins to fail. Without its sustaining force, the wizards will perish and with them, magic itself. Their powers fast dwindling, Wigg and Faegan must discover who - or what - now seeks to destroy Eutracia. As the awful truth is revealed, it is Tristan who must face this new enemy, an evil that transcends life itself, and fight the ultimate battle - for his life, his land and his destiny…
Continuing the monumental adventure that began with The Fifth Sorceress, here is confirmation that, in Robert Newcomb, epic fantasy has found an exhilarating new voice.
‘‘He puts his heroes through hell…Newcomb has a talent for exploring the darker, more brutal aspects of human suffering’ SFX
