Product description

Review

Grim mercenaries and badass alchemists brought to life by a bold, assured storyteller -- Peter Newman, author of THE VAGRANT

A lot to enjoy, especially if you are a fan of dark, gritty, old-soldier stories, Fantasy Faction

Snakewood's narrative voices are the real strength here . . . contemporary and as grimdark as it comes, British Fantasy Society

Uniquely dark and gritty fantasy. An intriguing debut, Bibliosanctum

Set in a brutal world of subtle magic, clashing empires, and commercial interests, this is an impressive fantasy debut. Selby demonstrates the command of style, character, plotting, and world building of a seasoned author, Booklist

Immensely readable . . . a fantasy novel that remembers that battles leave all kinds of scars, B&N Science Fiction and Fantasy blog

Covering ground well-trodden by Joe Abercrombie, with a similar use of earthy language and extreme violence, the story offers an original and effective twist with the use of potions, plants, and poisons on the battlefield . . . relish the well-choreographed action scenes in this debut fantasy, Library Journal

A very dark fantasy story with a distinct western flair . . . absolutely fascinating and incredibly original, Sense of Wonder

This book took me on an emotional rollercoaster. It's adult and grim, but instead of the nihilism and bleakness of much Grimdark these days it has a streak of love and hope running through the heart of it. Most of that is to be found in the central character, Teyr Amondsen. She's flawed, vulnerable and also as hard as nails. I loved her, I loved this book. Highly recommended., John Gwynne

'In a world where soldiers are a brotherhood of junkies, their dealers are warrior chemists and kingdoms are drug cartels.'

This book took my breath away. I haven't read fantasy as compelling, original and rich as this in a long time.

The opening chapter, which you can read for free on the orbit website had me hooked. Such a gritty, violent introduction to a character so full of heart. I highly recommend you pick it up.
