The second book in the Pendulum Trilogy, a visionary work of imaginative fantasy from one of genre fiction's most exciting new voices.Eric and Case came to the world of Levaal through a door in an old railway arch, and it wasn't long before they found themselves caught up in the war to control this strange land. But the Wall at World's End, which once divided Levaal, has been brought down. Eric and his companions are forced to flee from the Tormentors, the dreadful creatures that poured through the breach, and there are rumours that one of the great dragons has escaped its sky prison. But there is even more to fear, for the transformation into a god of Vous, Friend and Lord of the world, is almost complete, and a being called Shadow who looks remarkably like Eric is wandering Levaal with great power but no purpose it yet understands. The end might be coming faster than anyone thinks.

Will Elliott

The first book in the Pendulum Trilogy, a visionary work of imaginative fantasy from one of genre fiction's most exciting new voices.Eric Albright, a 26-year-old unemployed journalist, and Stuart Casey, a homeless old drunk, discover a door in a graffiti-covered wall that leads them into the strange world of Levall. Here it is said a mountain-sized dragon with the powers of a god lies sleeping beneath a great white castle. In the castle the sinister Lord Vous rules with an iron fist, and the Project, designed to effect his transformation into an immortal spirit, nears completion. But Vous's growing madness is close to consuming him, together with his fear of an imaginary being named 'Shadow'. And soon Eric may lend substance to that fear. An impossibly vast Wall divides Levall. No one has ever seen what lies beyond. But Eric and Casey possess powers that no one in either world yet understands, and soon the Wall may be broken. What will enter from the other side? The Pilgrims is no ordinary alternate-world fantasy: Will Elliott's brilliantly subversive and creative imagination twists the conventions of the genre for an unforgettable, visionary experience.
