Conn Iggulden signing Darien
CONN IGGULDEN will be signing DARIEN at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Thursday 13th July from 6 – 7pm
Twelve Families. One Throne. An epic new fantasy series of spellbinding imagination. Welcome to the Empire of Salt.
The city of Darien stands at the weary end of a golden age. Twelve families keep order with soldiers and artefacts, with spies and memories, maintaining a peace that shifts and crumbles constantly. In turn, the people of the city endure what they cannot change.
Here, amongst old feuds, a plot is hatched to kill a king. It will summon strangers to the city – Elias Post, a hunter; Tellius, an old swordsman banished from his home; Arthur, a boy who cannot speak; Daw Threefold, a chancer and gambler; Vic Deeds, who feels no guilt; and Nancy, a girl whose talent might be the undoing of them all.
Their presence inside the walls as the sun sets will cause one explosive event after another. Before the sun returns, five destinies will have been made – and lost – in Darien.
