Political unrest and an uncertain future blinds the world to the rise of a new dark religion.
The Seers, the revered children who predict things to come, are being systematically eradicated by the Hekse so as to disguise the return of The Shadow known as Apollyon.
But those strong with the Light answer the call to gather as one and make a brave stand...
Obsidian is the first book in the epic, multi-character driven and dark historical fantasy, A Saga of Darkness and Light.
Set in an Elizabethan world, in which the powers of light combine to battle the rise of witchcraft and an all-encompassing evil, the story unfolds in the snowy tundra of The Icelands, as the Hekslayer Laxness and his apprentice daughter Henniker are caught in a deadly battle with a coven of Hekse.
At the same time, far across The Wash in The Highlands, the powers of darkness are being used to raise a huge tempest to drown King Buchan's bride to be, Princess Nin of The Icelands, as she sails towards her wedding ceremony.
Obsidian - A Saga of Darkness and Light is next thrilling book to emerge from the creative mind of author I. D. Roberts.
