I think his latest trilogy is actually his first older work, but it's
looking promising. At the launch of book three just before Worldcon,
respected sf scholar Van Ikin said something along the lines of
"Think of Sara Douglass as the Goliath of Australian heroic fantasy.
Now David is on the scene..."

And I've just realised that I forgot to mention what the books were
actually called.

The Tenebran Trilogy:
_A Dark Winter_ (Aurealis award, Best Fantasy Novel 1998)
_A Dark Journey_
_A Dark Victory_

By Dave Luckett.
Published by Omnibus Books with some reassuringly bad cover art.
