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. Un cisma divide a las naciones ramusianas de Normannia. A un lado, los monarcas que respaldan al sumo pontífice Macrobius, dado por muerto en la caída de la ciudad santa de Aekir pero milagrosamente reaparecido. Al otro, los reyes que han ligado su suerte a la de Himerius, un prelado ambicioso que planea convertir a la Iglesia en un imperio secular. Para el rey Abeleyn de Hebrion, el cisma no es una mera cuestión teológica, sino una dolorosa realidad bélica: en su capital, Abrusio, los Caballeros Militantes, el brazo armado de la Iglesia, libran un combate abierto contra la armada y el ejército hebrioneses, que siguen fieles a su rey. Pero, ¿cuánto durará su fidelidad una vez sepan que Abeleyn ha sido excomulgado? Entre tanto, el periplo del capitán Richard Hawkwood y su cargamento de magos exiliados ha culminado con éxito. Ahora se preparan para la exploración de las junglas del Continente Occidental, una arriesgada aventura que arrojará luz sobre el pasado de Normannia y sus vínculos con el nuevo mundo. Y en la ciudad monasterio de Charibon, en pleno corazón de la Iglesia, dos monjes realizan un descubrimiento que podría conmover los cimientos de la fe... si es que viven para darlo a conocer.
