Synopsis

Songs of the Earth by Elspeth Cooper

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.

Reviews

It's an incredible example of the genre and feels fresh, with a vibrant air, characters that come alive in the pages and walk through a world that is both detailed and imaginative... I simply can't rate this novel high enough it's a nigh-on perfect taste of high fantasy. -- Antony Jones SFBOOKREVIEWS blog
