'This is a truly ex­cellent fantasy and an epic beginning for a new trilogy' Locus

One woman will either save an entire continent or completely destroy it in a captivating epic fantasy bursting with intrigue and mystery, broken magic and betrayal.

'Guard the tower, ward the stone. Find your answers writ in bone. Keep your trust through wits or war - nothing must unseal the door.'

Deep within Gloamingard Castle lies a black tower. Sealed by magic, it guards a dangerous secret that has been contained for thousands of years.

As Warden, Ryxander knows the warning passed down through generations: nothing must unreal the Door. But one impetuous decision will leave her with blood on her hands - and unleash a threat that could doom the world to darkness.

'A classic, breath-taking adventure brim-full of dangerous magic and clever politics. This is a book that will thrill and delight any fantasy fan' Tasha Suri, author of The Jasmine Throne

'A must-read for lovers of high fantasy' C. L. Polk, World Fantasy Award-winning author Witchmark

MEDIA REVIEWS

This is a truly ex­cellent fantasy, and an epic beginning for a new trilogy. I can't wait to see what [Caruso] does next - LOCUS

With this novel, Melissa Caruso solidifies herself as one of my favourite authors. The Obsidian Tower is a masterpiece of character driven fantasy . . . I was enthralled from the first page - FANTASY BOOK REVIEW

Caruso is a terrific writer who weaves fascinating and intricate fantasy tales - GRIMDARK MAGAZINE

Caruso's world-building is brilliant and complex

A gorgeous narrative that intertwines war, love, political intrigue, betrayal . . . I'll be following this author's career closely as I think she is sublimely talented . . . A phenomenally well-written, engrossing political fantasy series

The eagerly awaited conclusion to Caruso's Swords and Fire Trilogy is as spellbinding as the first two books

A dashing, compelling and exciting story, blending magic, assassination, conspiracy and diplomacy . . . I'll make no bones about it: I loved this book

Block out time to binge this can't-stop story filled with danger and unexpected disaster. From the fresh take on time-honored tropes to a crunchy, intrigue filled story, The Obsidian Tower is a must-read for lovers of high fantasy - C. L. Polk, author of World Fantasy Award-winner WITCHMARK

"A classic, breath-taking adventure brim-full of dangerous magic and clever politics. This is a book that will thrill and delight any fantasy fan - Tasha Suri, author of Empire of Sand
