'First-rate fiction, first rate adventure, first rate full stop' - Sunday Times bestseller Conn Iggulden.
Falcio val Mond, First Cantor of the Greatcoats, is on the brink of fulfilling his dead King's dream: soon, Aline will take the throne and restore the rule of law once and for all.
But in Tristia, nothing is ever that simple. In neighbouring Avares, an enigmatic warlord has risen, and his closest ally is none other than Falcio's old nemesis Trin. With the armies of Avares at her back, she'll be unstoppable.
Falcio, Kest and Brasti go racing north to stop her, but in those treacherous climes they discover something altogether different, and far more dangerous . . .

One hell of a good book * Conn Iggulden on Traitor's Blade *
Combining old-school swashbuckling action with contemporary characters and a good dose of grit, these books are the rarest of things, great rollicking fun combined with an emotional punch . . . Sebastien, write faster! * John Gwynne, author of The Faithless and the Fallen *
With the close of Tyrant's Throne, The Greatcoats has cemented its place in my tier one recommendations forever * The Quill to Live, 'The Best of 2017' *
If I could recommend one series from the last five years that I hold up as the most action-packed and emotionally-riveting, I would be hard-pressed to look past Sebastien de Castell's The Greatcoats Quartet. * Fantasy Book Review *
Sebastien de Castell is a rare talent, one of the most gifted storytellers to emerge in recent years . . . Tyrant's Throne is the perfect ending to cap off this stellar quartet. The Greatcoats now sits in a place of honor on my bookshelf as one of my favorite fantasy series of all time. * Bibliosanctum *
An impossibly engaging piece of storytelling that demands you give everything of yourself . . . If this is the last we see of Falcio, Kest, Brasti, and the rest, then you couldn't ask for more than Tyrant's Throne. I hesitate to use the word 'perfect' but this is about as close as epic fantasy gets to that plateau. * Beauty in Ruins *
Tyrant's Throne is the perfect send off for Falcio and the Greatcoats, offering a glimpse of what it means to be human. * The Comic Vault *
Tyrant's Throne is such a satisfying end to a phenomenal series . . . a fantastic time and absolutely worth every second. * Utopia State of Mind *
This is a one in a million series. Each book is fantastic yet manages to be better than the last and with Saint's Blood Castell takes the characters and readers into some hugely unexpected and exciting places with the consummate precision and skill of a master dueller * Fantasy Faction *
With its conclusion, The Greatcoats deserves to take its place in the upper echelons of finished fantasy series . . . If you haven't yet joined The Greatcoats, then why the hell not?!?! * The Tattooed Book Geek *
Each bloody encounter [is] described with meticulous detail . . . Traitor's Blade is the entertaining story of how the greatcoats rose and fell, and how they could rise again * SFX *
Brilliantly conceived, cleverly executed and a whole bucket of fun, this will be one of the most entertaining novels you read this year * Liz Loves Books *
Every time I open one of these books, I have to make sure I have a clear schedule for at least the rest of that day, because putting the book down again is damn near impossible . . . There's just something about these stories that yanks [you] right in and doesn't let go * Over the Effing Rainbow *
Sebastien de Castell keeps delivering amazing books, displaying his talent for weaving a web of humour, tension, ingenious plots and fantastic characters * DraumrKopa *
Get the book, read the book. It's a conclusion which relies on what came before, but uses that emotional depth and connection to provide an absolutely brilliant payoff. Read it - you won't be disappointed. * SF and F Reviews *
This is a series that has brought much enjoyment and delivered a solid, forward narrative throughout four mighty tomes and will remain a favourite of the last several years and of those to come. It is already on the re-read list. * British Fantasy Society *
