The new star of British fantasy returns with The Waking Fire, a thrilling new epic fantasy of exploration and adventure, spies and assassins, explosive magic and the battle for empire.
IGNITE THE FIRES OF WAR
Claydon Torcreek is a bareknuckle brawler and small-time thief, who cares little for matters of empire. Yet the failure of his latest heist (not to mention some old-fashioned blackmail) has left him with no choice but to accept a dangerous mission in service to his country.
War is coming, and Clay is almost certainly going to be on the losing side . . . unless he can hunt down a fabled creature whose valuable blood might just turn the tide - if it even exists. Clay has handled many things in his time (most of them illegal), but nothing as priceless as his nation´s future.
