Product Description

Uncover a land that has been hidden for over a thousand years.

Beneath the land of Britain, a great army is sleeping. On a visit to an old church, Daniel Tully and Freya Reynolds awaken two ancient knights from a centuries-old slumber. They are kidnapped and taken to an undergound city that stands in peril, beseiged in all directions by a vicious warhost. Nidergeard is the only thing protecting the upper world's blissful ignorance of mythical forces that have been held at bay since the creation of the world. In order to return home, Daniel and Freya must strike at the heart of the opposer's power.

Publisher's Description

Ancient legend tells of an army of knights that will remain sleeping until the last days.

The knights are waking up.

A homeless man is stalked by a pale, wraithlike creature with a mouthful of needle-sharp teeth. Maimed animals and a host of suicides cluster around a mountain in Scotland. And deep beneath the cobbled streets of Oxford, a malicious hoard besieges a hidden city.

Freya Reynolds is a university student with a touch of OCD and an obsession with myth and folklore. Daniel Tully is living rough on the streets of Oxford, waging a secret war against an enemy only he can identify. Years ago, they found themselves in a world few know is real. They have since gone their separate ways and tried to put that adventure behind them.

But the mythical world is now bleeding into our reality—a dark spiritual evil that is manifesting itself in forgotten corners of the British Isles. Alex Simpson is a Scottish police officer who specializes in hunting mythical creatures. Together, they must confront the past, the present, and points beyond to defeat the ultimate threat to humanity.

Nothing they've seen so far prepares them for what awaits . . . in The Realms Thereunder.

Publisher's Weekly

This ambitious debut somewhat jerkily weaves three major narratives into a Tolkienesque saga, maintaining that destroying Evil isn't enough: humans have to actively build Good. At age 13, protagonists Daniel Tully and Freya Reynolds disappeared into a secret tunnel beneath an English church, awakened two sleeping Anglo-Saxon warriors, and carried out a coming-of-age sortie against horrid orcish yfelgópes before returning to the surface. Eight years later, Freya, an Oxford student, and Daniel, a homeless wanderer, plunge back into a renewed crusade in Nidergeard, the subterranean realm housing the whole range of supernatural British folklore beasties. Fitfully impressive passages can't mitigate the ennui of interminable tunnel and sewer crawls, and Lawhead's predictable message is often obscured by things that go bump in a near-endless night.
