The great city of Ebora once glittered with gold. Now its streets are stalked by wolves.

Tormalin the Oathless has no taste for sitting around waiting to die while the realm of his storied ancestors falls to pieces - talk about a guilt trip. Better to be amongst the living, where there are taverns full of women and wine.

When eccentric explorer, Lady Vincenza 'Vintage' de Grazon, offers him employment, he sees an easy way out.

Even when they are joined by a fugitive witch with a tendency to set things on fire, the prospect of facing down monsters and retrieving ancient artefacts is preferable to the abomination he left behind.



But not everyone is willing to let the Eboran empire collapse, and the adventurers are quickly drawn into a tangled conspiracy of magic and war.

For the Jure'lia are coming, and the Ninth Rain must fall...

Jen Williams, acclaimed author of The Copper Cat trilogy, featuring The Copper Promise, The Iron Ghost and The Silver Tide, returns with the first in a blistering new trilogy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Absolutely phenomenal fantasy -- Adrian Tchaikovsky
Williams portrays her characters as flawed but humane, propels the plot with expert pace, and excels at eldritch world-building * Guardian *
There is so much to praise about The Ninth Rain: the worldbuilding is top-notch, the plot is gripping and the characters just get better and better. A sublime read * SFX *
Yet again, Williams has created an addictive and coherent fantasy world filled with all sorts of deliciously interesting things within it... This is fantasy adventure at its very best. Go check it out * Starburst *
The Ninth Rain is a fast-paced and vibrant fantasy romp through a new world, full of people you want to spend time with and enemies you'd happily run from * SciFiNow *
Jen Williams takes us on another great adventure. Fresh, engaging, and full of heart -- Peter Newman
A cracking story that grips you by the heart and doesn't let go -- Edward Cox
A very original fantasy world * Story Collector *
The Ninth Rain is full of tropes written in a different and clever way. The drop-dead gorgeous man? He's the source of comedy. Immortals living off human blood but dying as well because of it? Yes, sounds like vampires, although they're not called as such in this book. The threat of zombies and zombie-infestation? They're present too, but not the usual plot line that involves a virus or what not. It was all so brilliantly done' * The Travelling Bibliophile *
Brilliantly creative fantasy * This Northern Gal *

“Action-packed fantasy adventure”

I've read a fair few fantasy novels and I don't think I've ever read anything quite like this before, so brownie points for Jen Williams for doing something a bit different. It's utterly jammed... More
