The 5th Worlde Sagas The empire stretches across the worlde map, pink ~ like the blotches on a drunkards face. ‘From The Devil We Came’ is the first book of the 5th Worlde Sagas. An epic page-turner that intertwines the stories from the Dark Books of the Forbidden Library and unfolds the swashbuckling adventure. A young Sir Thomas Henry Valentine Deveroux spies for the great empire, under the guise of being one of the illustrious literary minds of the age, but he is having trouble finishing his latest novel. His mother bullies him, his father has disinherited him, and his lover is a known witch and freethinking woman. An old Cambridge college acquaintance is then murdered, his mentor disappears, and a smuggler finds a body in Camden Lock, whilst his loyalty is torn between the Templars, the great empire, the crown and true love. Deveroux struggles with his emotions, the cultural laws, the inquisition, the Witchfinder General, and when he meets a beautiful Chinese girl, chaos erupts all around him. And so, begins the hunt for the lost treasure of the T'Ang, the fight for liberty, and the struggle for equality. An epic high fantasy set in a broken worlde of plots, high treason, intrigue, murder, war, torture, witchcraft and true love.
