The long-awaited second instalment in Samantha Shannon’s Sunday Times and New York Times-bestselling series – ‘The new Game of Thrones‘ (Stylist) 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, Sabran the Ambitious has married the new King of Hróth, narrowly saving her queendom from ruin. Their daughter, Glorian, trails in their shadow – exactly where she wants to be. Meanwhile, the dragons of the East have slept for centuries. Dumai lives in a Seiikinese mountain temple, where celebrants strive to wake the gods from the Long Slumber – but someone from her mother’s past is coming to the mountain for her. When the Dreadmount erupts, bringing with it an age of terror and violence, these women must rise to protect humankind from a devastating threat. Sweeping and epic, A Day of Fallen Night returns readers to the world of The Priory of the Orange Tree.

A Day of Fallen Night (The Roots of Chaos):

Review

Praise for The Priory of the Orange TreeA tour de force, and my new absolute favourite epic fantasy — Laini Taylor, author of Strange the Dreamer

Sensual … Majestic … Blending politics with high adventure and the epic with the intimate, the narrative builds like a tidal wave before sweeping towards an awesome, climactic finale ― Daily Mail

I have been waiting my whole life for this fantasy. It’s the kind of book you never want to end. Utterly unique, wild, and rich. Sheer perfection — Lisa Lueddecke, author of A Storm of Ice and Stars

Allow me to introduce your newest fantasy obsession … Remarkably fresh and frankly fearless … Works so well as an intricately realised and feminist fantasy that one might even be tempted to dub Samantha Shannon ‘The female George R.R. Martin’ … As with the best of fantasy, The Priory of the Orange Tree feels less like a book than it does an experience, a true sojourn into a rich and terrible new world ― Hypable

The new Game of Thrones. Escapism at its finest – Shannon, we salute you ― Stylist.co.uk

A magnificent epic … Crammed with subversion and feminism, and written with tough, poetic assurance ― Metro

The Priory of the Orange Tree is a brilliant, daring, and devastating jewel. Samantha Shannon has crafted an incredible world full of depth and danger, with characters I would follow to the ends of the earth. It was a privilege to read, and I’m in awe of her talent. I can’t wait for the rest of the world to experience this book — Victoria Aveyard, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Red Queen series

A masterpiece of intricate world-building with the depth, complexity, heart and soul of a timelessly relevant classic. Brilliant, diverse, feminist, subversive, thought-provoking and masterfully told, The Priory of the Orange Tree is epic fantasy at its finest. The scope of the book is staggering, as is Shannon’s deft command of language … An absolute must-read — Karen Marie Moning, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Highlander and Fever series

Nothing short of extraordinary. An audacious, ambitious, sprawling epic, set across a world like no other, The Priory of the Orange Tree takes everything you think you know about high fantasy, rips it apart and remakes it … Nothing short of game-changing … An absolute masterclass in story telling, from one of the most exciting and innovative fantasy writers alive today. With it, Samantha Shannon has set the bar stratospherically high. This is the book of 2019 — Melinda Salisbury, author of The Sin-Eater’s Daughter

An epic fantasy destined to be a classic. A world crafted with such intricacy and detail, I had to remind myself it was not a real place. The Priory of the Orange Tree is one of those rare novels that captures your imagination so completely you will read it over and over, until the cover cracks and the spine breaks — Kami Garcia, #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of Beautiful Creatures and author of Unbreakable
