Editorial Reviews


Helen Lowe’s Wall of Night series has the potential to become a classic, right up there with the likes of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire . . . Anyone who loves to read fantastic fiction from a true talent should read this series.” (SF Site)

“Helen Lowe writes wonderful stories, yes, but her work also speaks with lyricism to deeper questions of how we treat each other. With lovely prose that brings vivid life to her characters, she creates a universe with people we care about. This is an author with a gift for fantasy.” (Nebula Award-winning author Catherine Asaro)

“Helen Lowe’s writing moves from strength to strength. Powerful story lines, memorable characters and a vividly imagined world make THE GATHERNG OF THE LOST a strong follow-up to The Heir of Night.” (Juliet Marillier)

From the Back Cover

Garrisoned by the Nine Houses of the Derai, the towering mountain range called the Wall of Night is all that separates the people of Haarth from the terrible Darkswarm.

Five years have passed since the Wall was breached and the Keep of Winds nearly overrun. Five years since the Heir of Night, Malian, and her friend and ally Kalan went missing in the wild lands of Jaransor.

Now, in Haarth's diverse southern realms, events are moving. From the wealthy River city of Ij to the isolated Emerian outpost of Normarch, rumors of dark forces and darker magics are growing. As the great Midsummer tournament at Caer Argent approaches, Haarth will have one opportunity to band together against an enemy in which few believe . . . or be lost forever.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Before I write anything else, I'll mention that the last decade has been good for fantasy literature, because lots of new authors have emerged and several excellent books have been written during the last couple of years. Helen Lowe is one of these good authors, because her books are highly enjoyable and entertaining reading experiences. Her fantasy series, The Wall of Night, is a powerful, complex and beautifully written tale about friendship, duty, loyalty and magic.

Here's a bit of information about the first book, The Heir of Night:

In The Heir of Night the readers were introduced to the world of Haarth, which was divided into different parts. In the northern part of Haarth, The House of Night (one of the nine Derai Houses) stood against the forces of darkness called the Darkswarm. The old powers were beginning to emerge again and Malian (the Heir of the House of Night) found out that she can use old powers and she has a destiny to fulfill. She also noticed that she had to learn who to trust, because enemies were everywhere. She became friends with Kalan, who also could use old powers. The Derai have been afraid of the old powers since the horrible event called the Betrayal. After this horrible event the Derai separated those which had ancient powers from normal people, so Malian's situation was difficult, because she had to think about her life and her destiny. Malian and Kalan were being sent to exile, but they escaped with the help of their friends. Their escape took them to a dangerous place called Jaransor and they had cross it in order to get to a safe place...

And here's information about the second book:

The Gathering of the Lost continues the story of Malian and her allies. The events take place five years after the events of the first book.

Format: Paperback
"The Gathering of the Lost" is the second book in The Wall of Night quartet by Helen Lowe. I liked the first book "The Heir of Night" but "The Gathering of the Lost" is better. This book starts 5 years after the events in "The Heir of Night" with the same characters while introducing new ones at the same time. Just be patient and keep reading - Malian and Kalan eventually appear. Malian is the one doing the `gathering' of the title. There is a very touching romantic side story in this fantasy that reads like a political thriller in some parts. There are a lot of things going on and there are revelations. There appears to be more than one story in this fantasy as we see it being told from the viewpoints of several characters scattered all over Haarth. To say more would give too much away.

This book is worth getting and reading. I really enjoyed this well-balanced book. It had the right mix of story-telling, intrigue, character development, action and romance in it for me. It held my attention as a reader and kept going at a decent consistent pace from start, middle and end. To get the full benefit of this book, I think one would need to read "The Heir of Night" to get the start of it and the history which contributes to the current story.

This is very rare for me but I experienced a need to read "The Heir of Night" again after reading "The Gathering of the Lost". I wanted to read "The Heir of Night" again before I started on the second book but didn't have time. There is a lot of information relevant to the story, hidden in discreet details. Some readers will be surprised once it is out in the open, I know I was.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the second installment in Helen Lowe's "The Wall of Night" quartet, the first being The Heir of Night, in which we were first introduced to the story's protagonist: Malian, the rightful heir to the House of Night, the first of the Nine Houses that garrison the mountain range known as the Wall. Malian's people, the warlike and indomitable Derai clans, have defended the Wall of Night for generations against that which lies beyond it: the demonic Darkswarm. Though the defences have held for countless years, the Darkswarm have now breeched the Wall and found their way into the world of Haarth, spreading their propensity for strife and unrest throughout each city they come across.

The previous book told of how Malian and her friend Kalan, a young man from the priesthood, managed to escape the attack of the Darkswarm and disappear out into the wilderness of a bordering country. That was five years ago, and "The Gathering of the Lost" opens with the two companions preparing to part ways in order to evade their enemies and learn the skills needed in order to combat the coming darkness.

From there the story expands in order to follow the narratives of a number of characters across several different countries. As with the first book, "The Gathering of the Lost" is divided into three parts, (technically five and a prologue, but parts three and five contain only two chapters apiece) each with a distinctive setting, purpose and atmosphere.

In Part I: "The Festival of Masks" we catch up with Tarathan and Jehane, two heralds who were introduced in "The Heir of Night", now travelling to the wealthy and exotic city of Ij to participate in the famous Festival.
