Mark O'Dell was born in Great Yarmouth on the east coast of England. Following military service and education at various universities, he now works as a scientist in a leading science and engineering company. This is his first novel and his choice of the fantasy genre stems from his love of high fantasy and his time as an artist illustrating a fantasy magazine for a well-known role-playing game.
An eternal darkness is coming to the world. So say the drug-crazed cult, whose file-toothed adherents proclaim the ramblings of a madman and who journey to the ancient city of Highfall to release their god - the Master of Shades.
