Emaneska is crying out for a saviour

The only question is:

Can they kill a child to save a world?

Emaneska’s Long Winter remains as bitter as a blade between the ribs. War is fast approaching. Gods and daemons are hovering on the horizon. Long-lost revelations arrive to haunt the lives of three men.

The Pale Kings are rising.

While Farden busies himself digging up his past in the strange deserts of Paraia, the storm-clouds begin to gather for Durnus, Elessi, Cheska, and Modren.

Together with Farfallen and his Sirens, they must fight to survive against the Long Winter, the vicious machinations of the new Arkmage, and the arrival of something much deadlier than both combined. War, deception, and murder are quickly becoming the only paths to salvation…


Pale Kings, the explosive and long-awaited sequel to the critically-acclaimed debut The Written, has finally arrived. Harder, darker, and faster, Pale Kings aims to leave The Written quivering and whimpering in the shadows. Get the sequels Dead Stars Part One and Part Two now in eBook and paperback.

Cold kings and damp dragons

An engaging fantasy in which the good are sometimes a bit difficult to discern from the evil. Very atmospheric but so much cold and rain and blood and pain gets a bit wearing after a while. I hope there's a little more joy in the sequel.

I've read The Written & Pale Kings. Excellent! Is Farden to be the new Pug. This could rival the Feist's "Riftwar" series. If you need your sleep don't read these: they are 'one more chapter books'. Just beggars the question as to when the next book is due?
