Michelle Paver Returns To The Bronze Age With New 'Gods And Warriors' Series

It was quite a surprise really to know that author Michelle Paver has a new series that is quite similar to her Chronicles of Ancient Darkness. Gods and Warriors, the new title of the new series, is set in the dangerous and mysterious Bronze Age and that’s good news because Paver is really very good at weaving and writing stories at this distant era.

The first book, called Gods and Warriors, was just recently released -- specifically last December 5, 2013. And in just more than a month the sequel follows without further ado and it's entitled The Burning Shadow. It will be released on January 16, 2013.

Book 1: Gods and Warriors (alternately titled The Outsiders)

Gods and Warriors


An action-packed new series set in the mysterious, dangerous Bronze Age

Young Hylas--goatherd, Outsider, thief--is hunted by powerful warriors who want him dead and have kidnapped his sister. Hylas is forced to flee his home, but not before a mysterious stranger gives him a bronze dagger. While on the run, Hylas must use his skill and wits to survive a shipwreck and a great white shark attack, befriend a dolphin, and help Pirra, the runaway daughter of a High Priestess. Together with Pirra, the dolphin, and the valuable bronze sword, Hylas fights to discover why he's being hunted and find his sister before the warriors find them.

Book 2: The Burning Shadow


For fans of Nancy Farmer and Lloyd Alexander comes international bestselling author Michelle Paver’s second novel in the Bronze Age adventure series.

While searching for his kidnapped sister, Outsider Hylas takes a dangerous detour when he’s captured as a slave and sent to the copper mines of Thalakrea. Hylas faces brutal overseers and lethal cave-ins while evading his enemies, the Crows. With the aid of an orphaned lion cub and his friend Pirra, Hylas must escape the mines and shatter the power of the Crows for good. But the prophecy is still at work and Hylas cannot escape its grasp, especially when the anger of the oldest god is awakened.

Expect more books to come from author Michelle Paver in this new series.
