Nobody in their right mind would want to order a novel 8 months in advance, would they? Still, on the off-chance that you’re not in your right mind, dear reader – or in the unlikely event that you simply can’t get through the day without securing your right to read a book I haven’t even finished editing yet – I’m going to give you the opportunity to pre-order my forthcoming novel – Talus and the Frozen King. Choose a link appropriate to which side of the pond you live and you’ll be flown straight to the relevant Amazon page.
Talus and the Frozen King – Synopsis
A dead warrior king frozen in winter ice. Six grieving sons, each with his own reason to kill. Two weary travellers caught up in a web of suspicion and deceit.
In a distant time long before our own, wandering bard Talus and his companion Bran journey to the island realm of Creyak, where the king has been murdered. From clues scattered among the island’s mysterious barrows and stone circles, they begin their search for his killer. But do the answers lie in this world or the next?
Nobody is above suspicion, from the king’s heir to the tribal shaman, from the servant woman steeped in herb-lore to the visiting warlord whose unexpected arrival throws the whole tribe into confusion. And when death strikes again, Talus and Bran realise nothing is what it seems.
Creyak is place of secrets and spirits, mystery and myth. It will take a clever man indeed to unravel the truth. The kind of man this ancient world has not seen before.
Meet Talus – the world’s first detective.
