If you’re after more information on this amazing book then first off, here’s the blurb from the back cover:
STAND TOGETHER… OR DIE ALONE
The vast cityport of Steelhaven was once a symbol of strength, maintaining an uneasy peace throughout the Free States. But with the King away, leading his armies, the city is rotting from the inside and the streets are slick with blood.
And now a dark cloud hangs over the capital in the form of the dread warlord Amon Tugha. When his herald infiltrates the city, exploiting a dangerous criminal underworld, and a dark magick begins to rise, the fate of the Free States will fall into the hands of the most unlikely saviours.
And those saviours include an unbalanced veteran, a disillusioned assassin, a hapless apprentice, a drunken swindler and a desperate thief, exactly the kinds of people you’d choose as your heroes during a time of crisis…
Cool right? For more on the author himself, check out Ford at his blog here.
We at J For Jetpack are huge fans of Ford. His 2011 novel Kultus, which involved a demon doorman, was one of the most fun novels I read that year. And now we have Herald Of The Storm which is witty and rude and crazy and fun. You need to read this book and what better way to get a copy than for FREE by entering our competition.
You’ve got until next Thursday (15 August) to get your tweet in to us.
All entries will be thrown in to the metaphorical hat and winner picked at random.
