"Williams is a master storyteller, and this novel is a celebration of his wild talent." -Jack Dann, author of The Man Who Melted
"A dark and compelling tale." -Fiona McIntosh, author of Myrren's Gift
"[In The Hanging Mountains
,] Williams creates a series of places and peoples that feel utterly different to anything that's come before... Every character is very three-dimensional and no easy cliché is used anywhere. Sean Williams is writing an important series here that does a great service to the fantasy genre by encouraging it to break tradition. His powerfully creative world-building should stand as a call to arms for fantasy writers to leave the world of Tolkien-aping lands behind and really start being adventurous. Read all three of The Books Of The Cataclysm and when the fourth is released, buy that, too. I know I will." -SFCrowsnest

, a special ebook-only release.
In a glacial lake at the top of the world, salvation and destruction await ...

Hard on Shilly's heels are Sal and his father, and an uneasy alliance of Sky Wardens, Panic, and foresters. The stakes are high as ancient forces including the strange and alien glast and a dragon with its own agenda struggle for ascendancy. If the Goddess rises from her Tomb, the fate of the Ice Eaters will be sealed and they will kill anyone who tries to get in their way...
