'Praise be to Our Lady of Eternal Sorrows, and blessed be the Ascended Martyr.' Those were the words on lips of the faithful: Blessed be the Ascended Martyr, and woe betide you if you thought otherwise. The word Unbeliever had become a death sentence on the streets in those days.

Gangster, soldier, priest. Governor, knight, and above all, Queen's Man.

Once, Tomas Piety looked after his men, body and soul, as best he could. Then those who ran his country decided his dark talents would better serve in the corridors of power.

Crushed by the power of the Queen's Men and with the Skanian menace rising once more on the streets of Ellinburg, Tomas Piety is forced to turn to old friends, old debts and untrustworthy alliances.

Meanwhile in the capital city of Dannsburg, Dieter Vogel is beginning to wonder if the horror he has unleashed in the Martyr's Disciples might be getting out of control.

With revolution brewing and tragedy and terrorism running rife in the cities, Piety and Vogel must each weigh the cost of a crown.

An author at the top of his game - GRIMDARK MAGAZINE

If you haven't yet picked up this riveting and unique series, I highly recommend you do - FANTASY BOOK CRITIC oN WAR FOR THE ROSE THRONE

If you want a gripping, well written and brilliant fantasy series, you got it. - ANNA RELLIX, @annarella, on WAR FOR THE ROSE THRONE

Dark, gritty, brutal fantasy with the heart of a gangster family drama and the page-turning pace of the best crime fiction, it's just SO good! - TRACK OF WORDS on WAR FOR THE ROSE THRONE

Dark and full of menace, McLean's War for the Rose Throne belongs on the shelf of any fan of gritty fantasy - ED McDONALD, bestselling author of The Raven’s Mark series, on WAR FOR THE ROSE THRONE

I can't remember the last time I read such a consistently good series as The War for the Throne. Characterisation in these books is phenomenal. Each is flawed, many are brutal, but you can't help but feel an affinity for them. McLean's prose keeps you reading, as you hang out for the next revelation and revel in each glorious set-piece - GEEK DAD ON PRIEST OF GALLOWS

Utterly unputdownable - TRACK OF WORDS on PRIEST OF GALLOWS in 'Best SFF of 2021'

A page-turner, a gripping story - @ANNARELLA on PRIEST OF CROWNS

An absolute humdinger of a series. Tomas Piety is probably one of my favourite modern fantasy creations. He is such a compelling, flawed but noble character. The story and the culmination of the saga are deeply satisfying - GEEK DAD on PRIEST OF CROWNS

Priest of Crowns is an absolute page-turner, and through the last 80%, I literally sat on the edge of my seat. Peter McLean brings the War for the Rose Throne series to a gut-punching end, one that will be remembered for a long time coming. One of the best books of 2022 for sure. Praise be to Our Lady - QUEEN'S BOOK ASYLUM on PRIEST OF CROWNS

Phenomenol! A grim, powerful story that's full of tension . . . the powerful, explosive conclusion to the series. A series that has consistently impressed at every turn - TRACK OF WORDS on PRIEST OF CROWNS

Tomas Piety's swansong is everything you could hope for - THE ELOQUENT PAGE on PRIEST OF CROWNS

A bold, explosive conclusion with a real gut-punch ofan ending - THE FANTASY HIVE on PRIEST OF CROWNS

McLean has crafted a remarkable story with a distinct voice on the state of modern politics, and a cast of colorful, vibrant characters that brought the story to life. Unputdownable - NOVEL NOTIONS

Written with the momentum of an avalanche - Geek Chocolate

“The epic end of a great series”

It’s been nearly four years since I read Priest of Bones and it surprised me as I wasn’t a fan of grimdark fantasy.
