The Fade

by Chris Wooding

Part of the Gollancz S.F. Series

The Fade Synopsis

The astonishing new fantasy from the award-winning author of The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray A subterranean world of vast caverns, underground seas, crystalline forests. A civilisation born of darkness, in darkness, protected by shadows. A city of merchants, whose eyes have turned upward to the surface, where the lethal light of day beats down on their world. A conspiracy so vast that it will swallow them all ... A stunningly original fantasy from a multi-award winning author. With a beautiful baroque world, sharp characterisation and Chris Wooding's trademark insight into the fantasy genre, the dawning of Halflight is an event more than worth waiting for.

The Fade Press Reviews

Wooding's aptitude for world building is impressive, and he creates a mythical and magical place that is striking and involving. He is equally skilled in characterisation too and the world he has birthed is populated with a wealth of fascinating characters. Wooding keeps things moving quickly, sending the narrative flying by at knots. * SCI FI NOW *
