Orpheus. Death and Dreams Vol. 1
A new fantasy trilogy by bestselling author of The Damned.
13th century BC: Orpheus, the illegitimate son of a Thracian king, raised motherless, deprived of his father’s affection and desperately in love with his stepsister, Eurydice. One night, Eurydice flees from the fortress where she is kept until her arranged marriage is concluded. Orpheus pursues her and, shortly afterwards, the two run into a band of satyrs, wild men who worship the god Dionysus. They are safe with the satyrs though. Marsyas, their leader, is Orpheus’ half-brother who years earlier disowned his father and the title of prince. Dionysus is intrigued by Orpheus and orders the satyrs to instruct him in their shamanic arts. While the king finds Eurydice and locks her back up in his fortress, Orpheus proves to be a prodigious student in the supernatural arts. He soon masters the ability to abandon his body and to enter the dreams of others. A brutal, lyrical, violent, and passionate tale of magic, eternal love and rebellion against destiny.
