“Knights of Ennor—the time has come to awake. Rise up to fulfill your secret oath and sacred duty.”

The Ancient Earth Trilogy No.2

Deep beneath the streets of England lies another realm . . . one few in our modern world know exists. Daniel and Freya, however, know it all too well. Eight years ago, these friends first journeyed through portals into the hidden land of Niðergeard—discovering a city filled with stones, secrets, and sleeping knights that serve to protect the world they call home.

But Niðergeard has fallen to dark forces, overrun by its enemies. Gates are being opened between the worlds that should have been kept closed. The battle lines for the war at the end of time have been drawn, and opposing forces are starting to gather.

Having served for centuries as the first and last outpost at the borders to other worlds, Niðergeard must be reclaimed and the mystery of its fall discovered. Daniel and Freya, along with an ancient knight and a Scottish police officer, must return to the legendary city, rally the surviving citizens, and awaken the sleeping knights—knights who are being killed, one by one, as they sleep.

But time is running out faster than they know.

What others are saying

“There is plenty of action, and lots of chapter cliffhangers that kept me reading. I loved the very fantastical, yet allegoricalness of this book, because the allegory doesn’t pop right out at you the first page of the book, it grows and takes form as you read.”—Faye, Amazon reviewer

“Ross Lawhead has done a great job of taking lots of old British mythology and weaving all of them into his novel. There is much to learn about Nidergeard and the sleeping knights who are there to protect it when the need arises.This is a page turning thriller as the war of light against darkness rages. In these pages there is much to learn of mythology and, I think, Mr. Lawhead has taught us well.”—Vic G., Barnes & Noble reviewer
