About this author

I'm an Australian author of 30 novels, mainly fantasy. They include the bestselling Three Worlds epic fantasy sequence, which has sold over a million print copies and has been published in 11 countries. It comprises The View from the Mirror quartet, The Well of Echoes quartet and The Song of the Tears trilogy. I’m currently writing the long-awaited sequel to The View from the Mirror, which will be published worldwide by Hachette from late 2015, http://www.ian-irvine.com/threeworlds....
