Volume 1: Seventh Child

September Weekes discovers a stone that takes her to Gwlad, where she is hailed as the one with the power to defend them against the evil known as the Malevolence. September meets the people’s leader, the Mordeyrn Aurddolen, and the bearers of the seven metals linked to the seven ‘planets’ that give them special powers to resist the elemental manifestations of the Malevolence. She returns home, but a fortnight later, is drawn back to find that two years have passed and there have been more attacks. She must help defend Gwlad against the Malevolence.

Volume 2: The Power of Seven

Having reached Arsyllfa, September is re-united with the Mordeyrn Aurddolen with whom, together with the other senior metal bearers that make up the Council of Gwlad, she must plan the defence of the Land.

The time of the next Conjunction will soon be at hand. The planets, the Sun and the Moon will all be together in the sky. At that point the protection of the heavenly bodies will be at its weakest and Gwlad will be more dependent than ever on September. But now it seems that she must defeat Malice, the guiding force behind the Malevolence, if she is to save the Land and all its people. Will she be strong enough; and, if not, to whom can she turn for help?

Seventh Child was published in a digital edition on 2nd January 2015 and The Power of Seven on 30th January 2015 – they will be launched in paperback together at Dysprosium.

Bookworm IV publication as eBook
Oct 1 – Oct 2 all-day

Bookworm IV: Full Circle, the fourth and final instalment in Christopher Nuttall’s bestselling epic fantasy Bookworm series, will be published in an eBook edition on the 2nd October 2015.

A new Emperor has arisen … and the Empire is collapsing into chaos.

Artwork: Alison Buck
Artwork: Alison Buck

Having escaped from the Golden City, Elaine, Johan and their friends – including some strange allies with goals of their own – race desperately towards Ida, hiding place of the ancient Witch-King. Behind them, the armies of the new Emperor – a man permanently poised on the verge of madness – give chase, unleashing monsters and spells from the long-buried past on everyone who stands in their way. Ahead of them, the Witch-King waits, biding his time as he prepares for his ascension.

As they endure terrible dangers – and figures from the past – Elaine and Johan come to realise that Elaine’s knowledge of magic and the bond between them may be the only thing standing between the Witch-King and godhood. But if they cannot prepare a defence in time, the entire world will die when the Witch-King rises from his tomb …

Bookworm IV: Full Circle will be available in popular eBook formats from all good eBook retailers. It will be published in a print edition in November.
