Description

'TRULY EPIC FANTASY' James Islington, author of The Shadow of What Was Lost

From the east came the Bone Giants. From the south, the fire-wielding Hathrim.

It was an invasion that sparked war across the six nations of Teldwen. Now the kingdom's only hope is the discovery of a new form of magic - one that will call the wondrous beasts of the world to fight by the side of humankind.

In the start of a thrilling new series, the New York Times bestselling author of The Iron Druid Chronicles creates an unforgettable fantasy world of warring giants and elemental magic.

'This isn't just a breath of fresh air for the genre, it's a damned hurricane'
Jason M. Hough, New York Times bestselling author

'A rare masterpiece that's both current and timeless . . . merging the fantasy bones of Tolkien and Rothfuss with a wide cast of characters who'll break your heart'
Delilah S. Dawson

Review quote

There's a great deal of depth to this world, from its deep history, its magic, its characters and how they all come together rather organically . . . Highly Recommended * SFFWorld.com * An outstanding read and I look forward to continuing the series . . . A Plague of Giants is fantastic giant-sized epic fantasy * THE TATTOOED BOOK GEEK * Human-facing, optimistic, a much-needed reimagining of what epic fantasy can be * Chuck Wendig * Epic in scope . . . meticulous in detail and primed in possibilities. A full story in its own right and a superb jumping off point for a new fantasy series, the surface has only been scratched of where it will develop, and the secrets and mysteries yet to be revealed have the potential to grow into something uniquely compelling * STARBURST * A Plague of Giants is a rare masterpiece that's both current and timeless, groundbreaking yet traditional, merging the fantasy bones of Tolkien and Rothfuss with a wide cast of characters who'll break your heart while reminding you of your humanity. This book truly resonates and will haunt you long after the last page -- Delilah S. Dawson, author of STAR WARS: PHASMA A Plague of Giants is an absorbing epic fantasy, with clever storytelling that allows its many threads to each feel important, personal, and memorable -- James Islington, author of THE SHADOW OF WHAT WAS LOST This isn't just a breath of fresh air for the genre, it's a damned hurricane! -- Jason M.
