About Christopher Mitchell
Christopher Mitchell is the author of the epic fantasy series the Magelands.
Christopher’s first memory is of Elvis dying. His gran told him it was because he’d eaten too many cakes, and Christopher believed her. She also told him that there were fairies at the bottom of her garden, and he believed that too.
He counts himself very fortunate to have a supportive wife and four beautiful children. He loves deserts, which is too bad as he lives in Scotland, but the mountains, glens and lochs more than make up for it.
His other love is Greek Tragedy, especially Euripides, and he also reads history, science, fantasy, and pretty much anything about the Beatles…

The nightmare has begun… but where is the Black Dragon?
After a thousand years, the Eternal Enemy has breached the Great Walls, devastating great swathes of the City. Thousands lie dead, while the survivors huddle behind the old and decaying walls of the inner defences.
With the greenhides on one side, and the corrupt and cruel regime of the ruling Gods on the other, the people of the City await their end.
All that stands in the way is a disgraced Champion, a tortured God and two Mortals from a forgotten legend…
For six months, the lands of the massacred Scythe tribe have lain empty and desolate; then, one crisp winter's morning, the red sky crackles and forty thousand survivors of the Lostwell Catastrophe appear, along with a dozen dragons, and one Holdfast...
While King Daniel struggles to reform the City, Queen Emily dreams of recapturing the lost town of Jezra on the Western Bank. When the Lostwell Exiles arrive, she realises that she may have found the only force capable of transforming her dreams into a reality.
Lurking in the dark shadows of his palace in Dalrig, Montieth, the powerful God-Prince, conspires against the mortal government, as he plots to seize control of the City's last remaining reserves of salve, whatever the cost.
Lostwell – a dying world of volcanos, earthquakes, endless wastes and wild dragons.
For Corthie and Aila, Lostwell is a stepping stone to the home of the Holdfasts, and for Blackrose and Maddie it is the way to Dragon Eyre. But for Belinda, Lostwell means something else – the land where she once ruled as Queen.
Within the sanctuary of the Falls of Iron, the exiles from the city of Pella and Tara make their plans, but unknown to them, on Implacatus, the home of the Gods, a task force is being assembled – their mission, to find and secure the source of Salve, the miracle material that grants everlasting youth to the gods.
Sable Holdfast works alone. Tasked with finding a Quadrant, the former assassin is trying to redeem herself. Can she stop the gods of Implacatus from finding the world of Maddie and Aila, and help Corthie get home, or will she succumb to the old temptations…
Following his victory at the Falls of Iron, the champion Corthie Holdfast starts to believe he has a destiny. He is the chosen one, the hero who will defeat the Ascendants, and end their tyrannical rule of Lostwell.
As the Black Dragon tries to assemble an army from the wild and outlaw dragons of the Catacombs, the Gods of Implacatus plan their revenge, sending two Ascendants to regain control of Lostwell.
Their mission - to find the fabled Sextant, and to destroy the Holdfasts forever.
The Holdfasts of Lostwell are scattered. Sable, injured by Belinda, hides among the wild dragons of the Catacombs, while they plot to drive her and Maddie out.
Taken by the former God-Queen of Tara, Kelsey faces a life in captivity, alongside Aila; while Corthie lies sick and broken - his dreams of destiny in tatters, his hopes in ruins.
All that stands between the Ascendants and victory is Belinda, who faces her own struggles as she attempts to keep her resistance a secret. Battling her fears, only she has the power to free the land where once she was queen.
Promoted due to her family’s connections and mistrusted by the garrison’s officers, Daphne must find the strength to unite her troops and repel the advancing enemy hordes.

Or will her first command be her last…?
Killop & Keira, the twins of fire have grown up amid constant tribal warfare, each destined to become the champions of their clan.
As Keira’s powers have grown, so too have her people’s expectations of her.
When their homeland is invaded in an overwhelming attack aimed at the destruction of their culture and the enslavement of their families, together can they unite the clans to defend their land?
Or will the old rivalries tear them apart?
Karalyn, the 18 year old daughter of two war heroes, is trying to find a place for herself in the world. Her own powers were deemed so dangerous she spent much of her childhood in exile.
Now, the lure of the Imperial Capital and the prospect of service to the Empress is pulling her out of isolation and into the affairs of the world.
Hundreds of miles to the south, within the repressive land of Rahain, Lennox trains for the war to come. He and his comrades-in-arms, the children of slaves stolen from another land, have been trained as soldiers their entire lives for one purpose...
…to bring the Empire to its knees.
Keir Holdfast, elder son of Daphne and Killop, is always in trouble. Already an accomplished vision mage at 16, his life is turned upside down with the news that he also shares the same powers as his aunt, the infamous fire mage who brought down the old empire.
Can he learn how to harness his powers in service of the new empire, or will his arrogance lead to his downfall?
Hundreds of miles from the fighting, within the depths of the Sanang forest, a visitor arrives with a message for a family of hedgewitches; a message that will transform their lives, and change the destiny of the Magelands forever.
A God – lost in his own creation.
Endowed with the power of the five mage-lines, the God-Emperor cuts his way through the Star Continent, destroying everything in his path in order to gather the last of the surviving mages.
At the other end of the world a great fire mage sits in a tavern drinking whisky. Having fought the Emperor once before and lost, Keira is home at last. Forsaking her powers, she wants nothing more to do with the troubles of the world. But when her friends decide to fight back against the Emperor, Keira must make a choice.
Should she take on a god to save the world?
Or drown her memories in whisky?
On the run - again.
Branded an enemy by the Church and Emperor, Daphne Holdfast is forced to flee the Imperial City with her young daughter Karalyn, whose own mage powers are now beginning to reveal themselves.
They intend to travel to Rahain, a land in turmoil following the devastating invasion and occupation by Alliance forces.
With Holdings missionaries converting the newly-freed Rahain masses, and the overthrown aristocrats fomenting rebellion against the new regime, Daphne and her infant daughter must undertake a perilous journey to find the safe haven of Slateford, ruled by Karalyn’s father, Killop of the Kellach Brigdomin.
All Daphne desires is to settle down with her family, but as one of the most powerful mages alive, what if the world won’t let her?
What if the world has other plans for Daphne?
Keir is in retreat, while Corthie and Kelsey are missing, abducted by enemy forces.
Only Karalyn remains.
With the armies of the Empire in full retreat, the Renegade Gods hunt for the Dream Mage.
As the sole mage capable of stopping the gods from destroying her world, Karalyn faces a terrible choice – continue to hide away, or endanger everyone she loves and take the fight to the approaching enemy.
