The Tyranny of the Blood
In fourth century Scotland, a powerful inbred society with superhuman power and hereditary madness, known as ‘The Family’, has been trying for centuries to breed a child with the ability to control time itself. The blood is all that matters; the unfit are slaughtered to achieve its twisted goal. When Rendail takes over leadership of the Family from his father, he seems doomed to perpetuate the same mistakes…until a chance encounter with an enigmatic stranger opens his eyes. When Rendail’s firstborn develops the long awaited gift, a catastrophic chain of events is cast into motion that threatens the very future of mankind.
“Compelling and intense, The Tyranny of the Blood draws you into a dark world of danger and power play, where one man must battle to change his own destiny – and that of his race.”
Liz Williams, award winning scifi/fantasy author
