A gritty new fantasy about a reluctant hero combatting a forgotten god.


Every legend promises the same thing: at the time of the land’s greatest need the heroes shall return. What they don’t mention is that we are the greatest threat our green and pleasant land has ever known, or that our obsession with concrete and steel, with technology and advancement, is slowly killing the land. In the legends saving the land never involves the slaughter of its inhabitants. Legends lie.

In the last primeval woodland of London an ancient force stirs, issuing the call.

His voice echoes in the minds of the disaffected and disenfranchised, the doomed youth of the city: Rise up!
In a single night, six girls who have never met and bear no relation to each other are struck down by a mysterious sickness that leaves them in persistent vegetative state. Across the city an old woman who hasn’t opened her eyes in years finally wakes. Her first words are: The Horned God is Awake. Soon the puzzling truth emerges. Each Sleeper’s final words were the same dire warning.

One for one. The message was seared into the floor, along with all of the craziness a hundred year old obsession had amassed. With the children disappearing across the city, two men are about to learn the terrible truth behind those three words. They are all that stand between our world and the cleansing fire of the once and future king. The question our heroes must answer: how do you kill a god the world has forgotten about?

There's always been magic in our world
We just needed to know where to look for it


In 1924, two brothers both loved Eleanor Raines, a promising young actress from the East End of
London. She disappeared during the filming of Alfred Hitchcock's debut, Number 13, which itself is
now lost. It was the crime of the age, capturing the imagination of the city: the beautiful actress never
seen again, and the gangster who disappeared the same day. 

Generations have passed. Everyone involved is long dead. But even now their dark, twisted secret
threatens to tear the city apart.
Joshua Raines is about to enter a world of macabre beauty, of glittering celluloid and the silver screen,
of illusion and deception, of impossibly old gangsters and the fiendish creatures they command, and most frighteningly of all, of genuine magic.
He is about to enter Glass Town.
The generations-old obsession with Eleanor Raines's unsolved case is about to become his obsession, handed down father-to- son through his bloodline like some unwanted inheritance. But first he needs to bury his grandfather and absorb the implications of the confession in his hand, a letter from one of the brothers, Isaiah, claiming to have seen the missing actress in Old Spitalfields Market. The woman in the red dress hadn't aged a day, no matter that it was 1994 and she'd been gone seventy years.

Long buried secrets cannot stay secrets forever. Hidden places cannot stay hidden forever. The magic that destroyed one of the most brutal families in London's dark history is finally failing, and Joshua Raines is about to discover that everything he dared dream of, everything he has ever feared, is waiting for him in Glass Town.

A collaborAtion with Tom Brown

On the last night of our lives we all share the same dream. 
Some people believe your life flashes before your eyes... that final dream, an odyssy through The Kingdom of Rain is the foundation for that superstition. It's a journey in which we confront everything we have lived and haven't lived, all of the nightmares we conjured as children, all of the versions of us that never were because of roads we didn't take. 
We travel with two heroes, one old man who has lived his life to the full, one young girl who never really got to live hers to the Avenue of Yous - a crowded Victorian street where everyone wears your face... each one of them from a different day of your life where you made the choices that eventually made you you... They are the yous that never got to live because you chose something else instead of them... And you have to face them all before you die. 
Through the Abyss of Lost Memories - where you are confronted by everything that every happened in your life that you have forgotten... Like a snake pit of bitter life we put behind us... to the Silent House. This is where we lose everything that the dreamer was and ever might be returns to the pattern that makes us essentially aspects of the divine. The core of the last dream is a metaphysical journey, scaling the tower, being stripped as we climb until we are one with the elements, our dream flesh drawn from our dream bones to feed the energy of life, creation, everything and we're ready to become part of the energy of the universe. 
And so much more.
The Kingdom of Rain is a collaborative art project with the brilliant Steampunk Artist Tom Brown. Here's a glimpse of the brilliant work he's done.

London Macabre

Strange and frightening things are afoot in the City. The lions of Trafalgar have climbed down from the plinths surrounding Lord Nelson's column to assume the defense of the city, fulfilling an ancient prophecy, while a sinister presence, also free after centuries of imprisonment, now stalks tender prey through the gas-lit streets and meat markets of the Whitechapel District. The women this fiend targets are far different from the whores being brutally murdered by a man named Jack, for these woman may look like flower girls but they have the blood of angels running through their veins...

   Standing between these two forces are the Greyfriars, determined to face off against these infernal foes with nothing but their wits and a touch of old school magick. Success means the rescue of innocent blood and the gentle hearts through which it beats, but the price of failure is too horrible to contemplate when the devil and his minions look to claim London as their own.



Fifteen-year-old Ashley has a complicated life. There’s no doubt her overachieving parents love her, but they are wrapped up in their own worlds for so much of the time it leaves her feeling like she’s alone. Like a lot of teenagers, Ashley dreams of other worlds, but unlike a lot of teenagers her world is about to collapse as rifts to an ancient Fae Kingdom begin to open all around her. With the arrival of of a supernatural hit-squad intent on killing her, and an unexpected inheritance, Ashley’s London is about to become a magical and mysterious warzone where the prize is Ashley herself. Ashley has to find out the secrets of her own life before she is killed. Balancing ancient prophecies, schoolwork and the love of her life is difficult to say the least! 


N.D.E - Near Death Experience

Co-written with David Sakmyster

After a Near Death Experience (an 'NDE') radically transforms the life of eccentric billionaire Nicholas Sheridan, he recruits a team of other survivors to study the experience. Recreating the conditions that opened the gate to the unknown, they will discover amazing connections, common visions and dramatic abilities among people who have come back from the dead. But what they haven't bargained for is that the gate opens both ways, and something else has escaped death. Something hunting them... Something hungry.

"With NDE, Sakmyster and Savile trek across a dark line into very strange country. Equal parts smart and chilling, this is a powerful and important novel." -Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of EXTINCTION MACHINE and FIRE & ASH

Hallowed Ground

Co-written with David Niall Wilson

When a man known only as The Deacon set up camp outside Rookwood, a murder of crows took to unnatural, moonlit flight. The crows came to Rookwood; trouble soon to follow. Things were already strange in that God-forsaken town, but no one could have predicted the forces and fates about to meet in a dust-bowl clearing in the desert. A Preacher. A Demon. An Angel. A Gunslinger. 
   A bargain with the darkness was signed in blood, and broken, and as such deals usually do, it went south. Now the fate of lost lovers, faith healers, ancient Gods and the Devil himself collide in a circle of wagons tended by the damaged and deformed, the saved and the shorn. There's a power come to Rookwood, and this one-horse town is about to be transformed. Such deals are only made and broken…on Hallowed Ground.
