30/12/2006. Contributed by Jessica Martin

MFW Curran's debut novel The Secret War is a work of historical fantasy, ranging from the battlefields of Napoleonic Europe to the secret catacombs of nineteenth century Rome. A story of love and war, friendship and family, brotherhood and honour, it is a tale of two best friends who find themselves burdened with the task of saving mankind.

The year is 1815, when angels and daemons walked our streets . . .

For thousands of years a secret war has been fought between Heaven and Hell. Daemons and angels, vampyres and knights, clash for the future of mankind, and as the two sides wage war across the world, innocent people are caught up in the conflict - men like Captain William Saxon and Lieutenant Kieran Harte, who have recently survived the horrors of the Battle of Waterloo.

But now they face a greater struggle, against the daemonic forces of Count Ordrane, and the clandestine ambitions of the Vatican. They must try to survive assassination attempts, political machinations, epic battles on land and sea, and above all the power of a mysterious bronze pyramid - the Scarimadean - that brings everlasting damnation to all who come into contact with it.

Their only allies are an old man, a fading secret organisation in the Church, and an enigmatic warrior who may hold the key not only to the friends' fates, but to the fate of all mankind . . .

M.F.W. Curran was born in Essex, in 1974. He was brought up on a diet of fantasy and science-fiction and has been writing stories since he was ten years old. In a past life he worked in the banking industry, for the Government, as a music journalist, and a lyric-writer. The Secret War is his first novel.
