The Bloodprint Publisher's Summary
The author of the acclaimed mystery The Unquiet Dead delivers her first fantasy novel - the opening instalment in a thrilling quartet - a tale of religion, oppression, and political intrigue that radiates with heroism, wonder, and hope.
A dark power known as the Talisman has risen in the land. Born of ignorance and persecution, it is led by a man known only as the One-Eyed Preacher. A superstitious patriarchy, cruel and terrifying, the Talisman suppresses knowledge and subjugates women. And it is growing.
But there are those who seek to stop the oppressive spread of the Talisman. A resistance formed of the Companions of Hira - a group of rebels versed in the power of ancient scripture, a magic known as the Claim - believe they have discovered the key to destroying the One-Eyed Preacher and his fervid followers: The Bloodprint.
