Description

'Outstanding' Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Warfare, myth and magic collide in Legacy of Steel, the spectacular sequel to Matthew Ward's acclaimed fantasy debut, Legacy of Ash.

A year has passed since an unlikely alliance saved the Tressian Republic from fire and darkness - at great cost. Thousands perished, and Viktor Akadra - the Republic's champion - has disappeared.

While the ruling council struggles to mend old wounds, other factions sense opportunity. The insidious Parliament of Crows schemes in the shadows, while to the east the Hadari Emperor gathers his armies. As turmoil spreads across the Republic, its ripples are felt in the realms of the divine.

War is coming . . . and this time the gods themselves will take sides.

Praise for the series:

'A hugely entertaining debut' John Gwynne

'Epic fantasy as it should be; big, bold and very addictive' Starburst

'Incredible action scenes' Fantasy Hive

'Magnificent and epic' Grimdark Magazine
