Publisher Description

In A Day of Fallen Night, Samantha Shannon sweeps readers back to the universe of Priory of the Orange Tree and into the lives of four women, showing us a course of events that shaped their world for generations to come.

Tunuva Melim is a sister of the Priory. For fifty years, she has trained to slay wyrms – but none have appeared since the Nameless One, and the younger generation is starting to question the Priory's purpose.

To the north, in the Queendom of Inys, Sabran the Ambitious has married the new King of Hróth, narrowly saving both realms from ruin. Their daughter, Glorian, trails in their shadow – exactly where she wants to be.

The dragons of the East have slept for centuries. Dumai has spent her life in a Seiikinese mountain temple, trying to wake the gods from their long slumber. Now someone from her mother's past is coming to upend her fate.

When the Dreadmount erupts, bringing with it an age of terror and violence, these women must find the strength to protect humankind from a devastating threat.

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“This one took me months to finally get around to finishing but it was so worth it. Its one of the THICCCEST fantasy books I've read so far. It was such a beautifully written journey from multiple angles and really put the female aspect on display. It also challenged a lot of institutional narratives and stigmas of how and why things are in regards to religious aspects, etc. Looking back it now I find more and more takeaways from it. Superbly done Samantha Shannon.”
