DARKFELL is the story of a people under threat of persecution, of a waterborne plague bringing sickness to the healthy. It is the stunning return to the world of IMPERIAL LIGHT.


Mary Corran was born the younger daughter of an art historian and an Aegean Archeologist, which may explain the influence of Greek culture and history on her fantasy novels. Instead of pursuing an academic career, she decided to be a child of the seventies and travel overland to India and back. The need to develop a career sent her back to university to read History at Oxford, and marry a fellow student. After working in the City as an oil analyst for ten years, Mary went on to write the fantasy trilogy Imperial Light, Darkfell and Fate, which Venture Press will be publishing. Also available, a memoir chronicling her years of illness, Wasteland. She currently lives in Eastbourne, United Kingdom, where she is writing a new novel.
