The Righteous - Articles of Faith Book 2 (Paperback)David Wragg (author)
- In stock
Bound by oath and honour, Vedren Chel found himself drawn to the heart of a deadly rebellion. With him stood the mercenaries of the Black Hawk Company, who were only ever in it for the money.
But the uprising failed. Now, Chel and the sell-sword Rennic languish in prison, watching as their comrades are taken one by one for execution.
A daring escape will set them free, but with the combined forces of vengeful church and voracious crown arrayed against them, Chel and the Black Hawks must embark on a desperate search for new allies.
Journeying from frozen wastes to towering cities, from drug-riddled fleapits to opulent palaces, THE RIGHTEOUS is the thrilling and riotous second adventure from one of fantasy's most exciting new voices.

PRAISE FOR THE BLACK HAWKS:
'Reminds me of Abercrombie's THE BLADE ITSELF'
Nicholas Eames, author of KINGS OF THE WYLD
'Refreshing and entertaining, like a cross between Nicholas Eames and Joe Abercrombie; THE BLACK HAWKS is simply a joy to read'
Peter McLean, author of PRIEST OF BONES
'Wragg captures the classic fantasy spirit of adventure and exploration, wraps it with stabbed backs and cannibals and gifts it to you on a bed of action'
Ed McDonald, author of BLACKWING
'Everyone loves a good mercenary tale, but THE BLACK HAWKS offers more besides: a protagonist who's refreshingly rubbish at fighting, a supporting cast who'd be fascinating if they were just standing around in a supermarket, and an author who knows when to dodge cliches, and when to jump in and splash like a kid in a puddle'
Nate Crowley, author of 100 BEST VIDEO GAMES (THAT NEVER EXISTED)
'Check out THE BLACK HAWKS - it's full of fun characters, mercenary antics, twists, turns, and contains my favourite fantasy lemon'
Peter Newman, Gemmell Award-winning author of THE VAGRANT and THE DEATHLESS
'A remarkably assured debut...I can't wait to see what happens next'
Anna Stephens, author of GODBLIND
