About the Author
Bruce Blake lives on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. When pressing issues like shovelling snow and building igloos don’t take up his spare time, Bruce can be found taking the dog sled to the nearest coffee shop to work on his short stories and novels. Actually, Victoria, B.C. is only a couple hours north of Seattle, Wash., where more rain is seen than snow. Since snow isn’t really a pressing issue, Bruce spends more time trying to remember to leave the “u” out of words like “colour” and “neighbour” then he does shovelling. The father of two, Bruce is also the trophy husband of burlesque diva Miss Rosie Bitts. Bruce's first short story, "Another Man's Shoes" was published in the Winter 2008 edition of Cemetery Moon. Another short, "Yardwork," was made into a podcast in Oct., 2011 by Pseudopod. Bruce's first Icarus Fell novel, "On Unfaithful Wings", was published in Dec., 2011 while the follow up, "All Who Wander Are Lost", came out in July, 2012. The third in the series, "Secrets of the Hanged Man", came out in July, 2013. The first part of his Khirro's Journey epic fantasy trilogy, "Blood of the King", was released Sept., 2012, book 2, "Spirit of the King," in Dec., 2012, and book 3, "Heart of the King," in Feb., 2013. The first two books in the Small Gods series, "When Shadows Fall" and "The Darkness Comes", were released in 2013, after which Bruce took a year out to concentrate on his family and career. "And Night Descends" marks his resolute return to the writing chair.

There is a prophecy to fulfill and the cast all have their roles, but to what end is still a puzzle.
This epic tale is told from several points of view, each one as fascinating and intriguing as the others, within a realistic, if fantasy world, a tale that is rich in glorious storytelling.
Themes such as cruelty, friendship, loyalty, love, betrayal and many more, make this a compelling read...not forgetting what the prophecy may actually mean in itself and the consequences for this brilliant cast (who grow with the story).
The most frustrating thing is having to wait for the next book.
and wow who knew a man who don'r know who he is can help the blind to see and why is it vital to have a man from across the sea and the barren mother be together to stop the prophecy and what does it mean to Horace to know his son and grandson are at sea but does he know of his grandson and what of the prince and princess and their roles in the prophecy to find out more buy , read and review . and i hope to see what may happen next in book 4
