World War II London: The Blitz has all Londoners in its grip and people struggle to survive amidst the terror and chaos of constant bombardment.
 
But is it just Hitler’s Luftwaffe that is responsible for all the death and destruction that the city is facing? Brutus, the Greek Kingman who brought the bands of power to the isle of Alba millennia ago, once again walks the streets of London, this time as an American major. The men and women who are his eternal companions (and sometimes lovers and enemies) have been reborn in this time and place and all have come together for one last battle to complete the magical Labyrinth buried at the heart of the city. Half completed and resonating with an evil power, the Maze calls to them to finish the Game and possibly set all the players free.
But there is a new power that walks the land. It is a power that none anticipated and it has its own agenda. And by its actions could change the world forever.
 
Druid’s Sword is the fourth and concluding volume in Sara Douglass’s compelling Troy Game series, a riveting historical fantasy series of love and revenge set against the very fabric of time itself.

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

Chapter One
Waterloo Station, London
 
Saturday, 2 September 1939
 
Major? Major? I’m sorry to wake you, sir, but the train has arrived at Waterloo and you’ll have to disembark.”
 
Jack Skelton jerked too fast from deep sleep into wakefulness, and for several disorienting moments stared into the face of the conductor leaning over him, his mind unable to let go the dream images that skidded through it.
 
Frank Bentley and his insipid wife, Violet. Stella Wentworth, standing beautiful and untouchable under the embankment light.

About the Author

Sara Douglass

Sara Douglass was born in Penola, a small farming settlement in the south of Australia, in 1957. She spent her early years chasing (and being chased by) sheep and collecting snakes before her parents transported her to the city of Adelaide and the more genteel surroundings of Methodist Ladies College. Having graduated, Sara then became a nurse on her parents' urging (it was both feminine and genteel) and spent seventeen years planning and then effecting her escape.

That escape came in the form of a Ph.D. in early modern English history. Sara and nursing finally parted company after a lengthy time of bare tolerance, and she took up a position as senior lecturer in medieval European history at the Bendigo campus of the Victorian University of La Trobe. Finding the departmental politics of academic life as intolerable as the emotional rigors of nursing, Sara needed to find another escape.

This took the form of one of Sara's childhood loves - books and writing. Spending some years practicing writing novels, HarperCollins Australia picked up one of Sara's novels, BattleAxe (published in North America as The Wayfarer Redemption), the first in the Tencendor series, and chose it as the lead book in their new fantasy line with immediate success. Since 1995 Sara has become Australia's leading fantasy author and one of its top novelists. Her books are now sold around the world.
