Product description

Review

“Set against an otherworldly, intimate backdrop, Davis’s tale vividly brings to life a near-mythic period of British history while speaking to universal human experience.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Richly layered.... Not just a compelling story, but a treatise on the idea of fighting back when one’s beliefs are challenged. The way one’s ideals survive in an ever-changing world, as imperative now as it was thousands of years ago, is at the crux of this expertly rendered parable.” (The Globe and Mail)

Against A Darkening Sky pulls you in from start to finish.” (Shelagh Rogers, CBC's The Next Chapter)

“Rich and well-realized....Though it wrestles with big questions surrounding how we construct a view of reality, it’s the human connection and the deep intimacy there that gives this novel its magic.” (This Magazine)

“Never a false note is struck in Davis’s detailing of Anglo-Saxon life…. Lauren B. Davis is too good a novelist to make her story simply a vehicle for a ‘message’…. Captivating and entertaining.” (Winnipeg Free Press)

“Davis brings ancient Northumbria to life…. The story’s theme-how to remain true to one’s beliefs when they pose a threat to belonging, and even survival-still resonates today.” (Quill & Quire (starred review))

“A beautifully written novel that brings the world of the past alive with stunning imagery.... Anyone would be hard-pressed to find another novel that is able to bring the story to life in such striking detail.” (Minneapolis Books Examiner)
