Only a young healer stands between a dark god and the destruction of the Overworld...

When the dark god Arkonen, imprisoned in the Underworld for a millennia, learns the secret of his release, he steals a mortal woman, heavy with child, from the Overworld, and rips the infant from her womb. Thus Bane, the Demon Lord, is born. Two years later, a girl child who possesses the power of light is born among the healers.

After eighteen years of torturous training, Bane emerges through the World Gate. A dark army gathers to serve him, and he sets forth to conquer the Overworld and break the seven blue wards that bind Arkonen below.

When Mirra, innocent of her destiny, is placed in Bane’s path, he takes her with him on his bloody rampage, defying Arkonen’s order to slay her.

Bane has never known kindness, and Mirra has not known cruelty until now. He spurns her attempts to ease his suffering, unaware that the dark power that he wields is killing him. If Mirra cannot turn Bane from his dark purpose, the Overworld is doomed, and Bane is not what he seems …

Hey TC,

having read a pre-publication of the first of the Demon Lord series, I confess I am quite keen to read the next. I have to say that though the title character, Bane, is a hard-arse, he's clearly going to turn and that is my kind of character; a real evil bastard with no apparent redeeming features, who ends up sympathetic (though still a hard-arse. Put me on the list for the launch date...

Hi Phillus,

Thanks for your comment, and I'm glad you enjoyed the book. It will be available in all the major book shops in South Africa on Valentine's Day, and the sequal, "Dark God", will be published later this year. I have added your name to the list for notification in case you don't return to this blog for an update. The author is available to reply to any feedback that we get, and is keen to get comments from her readers.

Hi Miss Southwell.

Being one of your biggest fans I have to say I'm thrilled you've finally been published! Surpirsed, even shocked doesn't discribe my reaction when I saw "Demon Lord" in Exclusive at the airport!
I must say, the 'About the Author' section of the press release had it's own surprises for me as well!

All the best.

Ciao Baldey

:p
