Cover & Details: THE WATCHER OF DEAD TIME by Edward Cox


Late last week, Gollancz unveiled the cover for Edward Cox‘s third novel, THE WATCHER OF DEAD TIME. The final volume in the Relic Guild fantasy trilogy, here’s the synopsis…

The Relic Guild face the culmination of two wars…

Labrys Town, home to a million humans cut off from the rest of the universe, has been invaded. Those who protected it have been deposed.

The Relic Guild are scattered across the worlds of the Aelfir. Many of them are dead or dying. The Genii control everything. The war is almost over.

Clara, a young woman barely able to control her werewolf side, has seen her friends and mentors killed in front of her. She is the last hope for Labrys Town.

But someone else is watching…

The dramatic conclusion to the award-nominated fantasy trilogy which began with THE RELIC GUILD.

THE WATCHER OF DEAD TIME is due to be published by Gollancz on August 18th, 2016. The first two volumes in the series, THE RELIC GUILD and THE CATHEDRAL OF KNOWN THINGS, are also published by Gollancz.

Here’s just a small selection of the reviews the series has received…

‘A terrific debut novel, with plenty of scope for expansion and some really good world-building. Most importantly, lots of fun. Looking forward to the next one.’ Joanne Harris on THE RELIC GUILD

THE RELIC GUILD is a formidable debut from an author with huge potential, and I will be one of the first clamouring for a copy of the sequel.’ Fantasy Faction

‘A blend of horror, fantasy and civilised steampunk adventure… quite a bit more cinematic than the first book… Cox has taken the time to explore both the world and his characters with this sequel. The Guild is part typical fantasy adventuring party and partially a superhero team, and this time round we get to learn more about what makes them tick… an excellent middle book… leaves us wanting more…’ Starburst on THE CATHEDRAL OF KNOWN THINGS

Every page bursts with magic… an impressive sequel, building on its predecessor in its sheer inventiveness, scope and story development.British Fantasy Society on THE CATHEDRAL OF KNOWN THINGS
