A brand-new dark fantasy novel from New York Times-bestselling author Tim Lebbon


Arrested by the Ald, scholar Bon Ugane and merwoman Leki Borle awake on a prison ship bound for the island of Skythe – a barren land warped and ruined by ancient conflict. Survival is tough and the colony’s original inhabitants are neither friendly nor entirely still human.

But something else waits on the island, a living weapon whose very existence is a heresy. Destroyed many years ago, it silently begins to clutch at life once more.

 Also includes an interview with the author.

Read chapter One here.

    This is really exciting!!! I loved Echo City and have been eagerly awaiting your next Fantasy novel! SWEET!

    This a bloomin’ brilliant book. I’ve starting devouring fantasy books in a big way, and Heretic Land embodies everything I love about the genre, as well as taking it in new directions. For me, there was just the right balance of world building and action. Basically, It’s an action-suspense-horror-post apocalyptic-nerve-jangling treat.

    Thanks! I’ll go and read Echo City now.

    PS- the book cover art is fantastic.

    I got lucky and found a copy of this over here in the states and it was well worth the wait, my favorite of yours after Dusk and The Everlasting. It makes me really look forward to Coldbrook and any future dark fantasy books you release.

    Thanks John, that’s nice to hear. More dark fantasy novels coming soon, hopefully!

    As of this message: FYI, the Amazon US Kindle page says “NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE”


    Any idea why it’s not available in US, especially Kindle?

    Wasn’t all this digital tech supposed to make things faster and easier?

    I just got my Kindle portable today!!!

    Hi Cary, there’s no US deal for this novel unfortunately, that’s probably why it’s not for sale in the US. Sorry!
