J. M. McDermott returns to Dogsland in the stunning new novel When We Were Executioners, book two of a sweeping fantasy series, The Dogsland Trilogy, that revels in the small details of life.
Corporal Jona, the demon-stained Lord of Joni, died in the woods. His lover, the Senta Rachel Nolander, is a demon-tainted fugitive, running from the wolfskin-clad priest and priestess of Erin, who track her through the city based on dreams plucked from Jona’s crying skull, plotting to cleanse the world of the lovers’ demonic taint. Past and present collide as the tale of two ill-fated outcasts unfolds, and the executioners of Erin grow ever closer to their quarry.
When We Were Executioners is the second book in the Dogsland Trilogy, and the sequel to Never Knew Another.
