J. M. McDermott returns to Dogsland in the stunning novel When We Were Executioners, book two of a sweeping fantasy series 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.

“A haunting, sublime story that works on your subconscious long after the reading experience is over. The themes powering Never Knew Another are like concentric circles rippling outward from the locus point of where a pebble has been tossed into a still pond...”
