Stephen Donaldson’s ‘The War Within’ publishing April 4th — the 2nd in the Great God’s War series

Stephen Donaldson’s ‘The War Within‘ will be released on April 4th, 2019.

It is the second book in Stephen Donaldson‘s Great God’s War series, and follows on from ‘Seventh Decimate’.

The War Within‘ continues the story of the kingdoms of Amika and Belleger, and of Prince Bifalt of Belleger’s, but this time as the two former enemy kingdoms work together to defeat an even more terrible foe.


The publisher’s blurb has this to say about ‘The War Within‘:

It has been twenty years since Prince Bifalt of Belleger discovered the Last Repository and the sorcerous knowledge hidden there. At the behest of the repository’s magisters, and in return for the restoration of sorcery to both kingdoms, the realms of Belleger and Amika ceased generations of war. Their alliance was sealed with the marriage of Bifalt to Estie, the crown princess of Amika. But the peace–and their marriage–has been uneasy.

Now the terrible war that King Bifalt and Queen Estie feared is coming. An ancient enemy has discovered the location of the Last Repository, and a mighty horde of dark forces is massing to attack the library and take the magical knowledge it guards. That horde will slaughter every man, woman, and child in its path, destroying both Belleger and Amika along the way. 

With their alliance undermined by lingering hostility and conspiracies threatening, it will take all of the monarchs’ strength and will to inspire their kingdoms to become one to defend their land, or all is lost….

Stephen Donaldson’s ‘The War Within‘ will be released on April 4th in hardcover, paperback and on Kindle. You can pre-order the book on all major book platforms now.
