Throwback Thursday #20 - Lord of Silence

This is a great feature that Melissa at My words and pictures has been doing for a while and I wanted to jump on board! There are plenty of books out there I desperately want...

But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on my shelves?

Lord of Silence - Mark Chadbourn
When the great hero of the city of Idriss is murdered, Vidar, the Lord of Silence, must take his place as chief defender against the mysterious terrors lurking in the dense forest beyond the city's walls. Vidar is a man tormented - by a lost memory and a vampiric jewel that demands the life energy of others.  Now, with a killer loose within his home city, Vidar must solve a three thousand year old religious mystery to unlock the terrifying secrets of his own past.

I won this in a competition over two year ago! And still haven't read it. I liked the sound of mystery and supernatural crossed in a fantasy setting. Plus the cover somehow seems to hypnotise me each time...or maybe I just like the guy's chest! :-)

What do you think - worth moving it up the reading pile?


  1. Looks cool :) But...the name is familiar too (author) so ok move it up

  2. Oh now this sounds like a good one. :) Do read it and share it with us. :) I like the cover too. Nice pick this week.
