'The empire stretches across the world map, pink ~ like the blotches on a drunkards face.'


A dark epic fantasy set in a broken world of plots, high treason, intrigue, murder, war, torture and true love.


The Sagas are set in the Medieval times of the 100 Years War. The storylines twirl around twelve individual protagonists of differing ages, race, gender and sexual orientation, as they fight to survive in a very brutal worlde.


Templars, Witches, Inquisitors, Wizards, Kings, Fairies, and Murderers clash and plot intrigues.


A young Sir Thomas Henry Valentine Deveroux spies for the empire, under the guise of being one of the great literary minds of the age but he is is having trouble finishing his latest novel. His mother bullies him, his father has disinherited him, and his lover is a known witch and freethinking woman.

An old Cambridge college acquaintance is murdered. His mentor disappears and a smuggler finds a body in Camden Lock.


Deveroux struggles with his emotions, whilst his loyalty is torn between the Templars, the empire, and the crown. The cultural laws are introduced, the inquisition is in full swing, and the sadistic Witch-Finder General prosecutes

all who fall beneath his grasp.


Deveroux meets a beautiful Chinese girl and chaos erupts around him.


And so, begins the hunt for a lost treasure, the fight for liberty, and the

struggle for equality.



The Work of Gods - Book I of the Alchemy Series

High Fantasy in a Medieval World


The Work of Gods ~ 'It's a great read, entertaining and Donoghue has developed an unusual writing style.  He has take just enough historical fact, inserted a fair degree of humour along with some brilliant plot twists. I love the way each chapter is seen from a different character's viewpoint. It's rapidly becoming a classic and I can't wait for book two to be finished.' Zippy ~ Northern Fantasy League.
