The Heir of Night is the first installment of Helen Lowe’s Wall of Night series, and the second novel has been released recently. The series follows Malian, daughter of Lord of the House of Night, one of the great Derai families in Haarth as she is threatened by the Darkswarm. There are prophecies, monsters, forbidden lands and magic: everything needed for a tale that lands smack bang in Fantasy land! The plot is very traditional for the genre - young girl is under threat and finds she has a special gift of some kind; she and her friends must save the world from a terrible fate.
