Publisher's Summary

The follow-up to Zachary Jernigan's critically acclaimed literary debut No Return.

At the moment of his greatest victory, before a crowd of thousands, the warrior Vedas Tezul renounced his faith, calling for a revolt against the god Adrash and imploring mankind to unite in this struggle.

Good intentions count for nothing. In the three months since his sacrilegious pronouncement, the world has not changed for the better. In fact it is now on the verge of dying. The Needle hangs broken in orbit above Jeroun, each of its massive iron spheres poised to fall and blanket the planet's surface in dust. Long-held truces between Adrashi and Anadrashi break apart as panic spreads.

With no allegiance to either side, the disgraced soldier Churls walks into the divided city of Danoor with a simple plan: murder the monster named Fesuy Amendja and retrieve from captivity the only two individuals who still matter to her - Vedas Tezul and the constructed man Berun. The simple plan goes awry, as simple plans do, and in the process Churls and her companions are introduced to one of the world's deepest secrets: a madman, insisting he is the link to an ancient world, offering the most tempting lie of all - hope.

Concluding the visceral, inventive narrative begun in No Return, Shower of Stones pits men against gods and swords against civilization-destroying magic in the fascinatingly harsh world of Jeroun.

    "An Epic Meditation on Gods and Power"

    I thought Zachary would struggle to top the first book, but he did. A truly epic and surprising narrative, deepening the characterisation of those we met in the first book and introducing memorable new characters, too. The action is brutal, the magic system is amazing, and the world building masterly.

    Excellent performance from John, will definitely listen to more books narrated by him.
