The fourth book in the Rune Blades of Celi series by Ann Marston, Cloudbearer’s Shadow, releases in both print and eBook March 1, 2014.
This is a revised reprint of the original novel published in 1999.
In this novel the plight of the people of Celi continues with Gareth, who is the youngest and the last of the unfortunate lords of Skai. Called home from a lonely exile, he finds his father fallen into shadow. And worse.
For the Maedun conquest of Gareth’s homeland is complete. The standing stones are silent, their webs of magic torn asunder. The Rune Blade called Bane has been lost forever to dark sorcery, and the somber riders rule the islands that were once home to Gareth’s people.
Lavish with historical overtones of Scotland, Marston has created a series captivating to audiences both young and old, to lovers of historically inspired fantasy and epic adventure.
The cover is the work of Five Rivers’ Art Director, Jeff Minkevics, complete with runic inscription translated from Scots Gaelic into Ogham.
The fifth and sixth books of the original two-trilogy series will release later in 2014, with a brand new installment scheduled for early 2015.
