About the Author: Paul Kearney



Paul Kearney was born in Ballymena, Northern Ireland, in 1967. He went to a local grammar school, and then to Lincoln College, Oxford, where he read Anglo-Saxon, Old Norse, and Middle English

Shortly after leaving Oxford, he went on a solitary climbing trip to the Isle of Skye, and it was after tumbling off a mountain there that the character of Michael Riven first came to him. The first half of The Way to Babylon was composed shortly after, and taken up by the literary agents Campbell, Thomson & McLaughlin. Richard Evans at Victor Gollancz bought the book, and Gollancz then published Kearney's next seven books, including the Monarchies of God series.

In the eight years subsequent to the publication of The Way to Babylon, Kearney lived in Copenhagen, New Jersey, and Cambridgeshire, but at present he makes his home a stone's throw from the sea in County Down, with his wife, two dogs, a beat-up old boat, and far too many books.

Año del Santo de 551. Normannia es un continente dividido. En oriente, las noticias no pueden ser peores: la ciudad de Aekir, centro espiritual de las Monarquías de Dios, ha caído ante los embates del sultán de Ostrabar y sus feroces merduk. El legendario comandante John Mogen ha perecido en la defensa, y el sumo pontífice de la fe ramusiana hadesaparecido y se presume que también ha muerto. Ahora sólo queda reagrupar a las fuerzas defensivas desbandadas, y elegir el lugar donde presentar la última resistencia.

Mientras, en el otro extremo del continente, la represión religiosa de la orden inceptina siembra el terror en el próspero reino marítimo de Hebrion.

Sus víctimas: aquéllos que practican las artes mágicas del dweomer o, simplemente, son extranjeros sospechosos de desafecto hacia la verdadera fe. En medio de este caos surge la figura de Richard Hawkwood, un experto marino curtido en mil travesías y elegido por el rey de Hebrion para capitanear una misión inaudita: navegar hacia el extremo oeste del mundo, en busca del fabuloso continente occidental, con un cargamento de magos exiliados a bordo. El viaje promete ser inolvidable.
