'One of the best fantasy novels I've read in a long time...This book is truly special' Sarah J. Maas on The Bone Shard Daughter

Magic. Revolution. Identity.

The Emperor is Dead. Long live the Emperor.


Lin Sukai finally sits on the throne she won at so much cost, but her struggles are only just beginning. Her people don't trust her. Her political alliances are weak. And in a far corner of the Empire a rebel army of constructs is gathering, its leader determined to take the throne by force.

Yet an even greater threat is on the horizon, for the Alanga - the powerful magicians of legend - have returned to the Empire. Lin may need their help to defeat the rebels and restore order.

But can she trust them?

The Bone Shard Emperor is the unmissable sequel to The Bone Shard Daughter, one of the biggest fantasy debuts of recent years - a captivating tale of magic, revolution and mystery, where a young woman's sense of identity will make or break an empire.

* Publishers Weekly *
A wild ride full of action, betrayal, and heart-in-your-throat plot twists. Nothing happens as expected, and it's fantastic * Grimdark Magazine *
The Bone Shard Emperor is delicious fantasy fiction at its best, wrapping its coils around my mind and heart, teasing me and toying with my emotions, breaking my heart and melting it at the same time.

“These books just keep getting better and better”

The Bone Shard Emperor was even better than The Bone Shard Daughter.

I think in part this is due to the side PoVs being cut down to only the most necessary bits which I'm fully on board with.

I love how Lin and... More

The Bone Shard Emperor picks things up almost where The Bone Shard Daughter left them and, yes, I really think that before reading this, you should read the earlier book, if you haven't already. Some series you... More
