The city of Ro Canarn burns. With their father's blood fresh upon the headsman's sword, Lord Bromvy and Lady Bronwyn, the last scions of the house of Canarn, face fugitive exile or death.

In the court of Ro Tiris, men fear to speak their minds. The Army of the Red marches upon the North. Strange accidents befall those who dare question the King's new advisors. Those foolish enough to speak their names call them the Seven Sisters: witches of the fire god; each as beautiful and as dangerous as a flame.

And, called from the long ages of deep time by war and sacrifice, the children of a dead god are waking with a pitiless cry.

All that was dead will rise.

All that now lives will fall...

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Martin meets Lovecraft ... Fun and refreshingly direct' * SciFiNow *
'Interesting and enticing, deftly sidesteps fantasy cliche and thrusts you towards the next instalment' * SFX *
The Black Guard has been described as "Martin meets Lovecraft", and doesn't disappoint on either count. With bleak personal stories of loss and hardship, wars between rival nations and a plot to resurrect a dead god, the novel is packed with action and intrigue, 7/10' * Fantasy Faction *

“Bit slow to start...”

It took a while for me to get into this book but once I did I couldn't put it down and I look forward to reading the sequel. I would recommend this to fans of game of thrones who want something a little softer... More

“Superb!!”

One of my favorite books so far this year. This is epic fantasy at its very best with characters and the sort of fearless writing that would make George R. R. Martin proud. If like me you are trying to fill the gap... More
