    Carrie Vaughn
    - USA Today Bestselling author

    Library Journal
    -

    Publishers Weekly
    -
  • “A great read and unlike almost anything else I’ve read in urban fantasy: It’s hard-boiled and dark, definitely its own beast. Damn, this man can write! I’ll be standing in line for book two.”
    Kat Richardson

    - NYT Bestselling author
  • “Gritty, grim, yet surprisingly personal and poetic, Eyes to See is like nothing else in its field. Make time for this one.”

Fall of Night is (finally) here!

It has been delayed several times because, well, life but at long last the sixth book in the Templar Chronicles series is now here!

Fall of Night picks up just a few days after the events of Judgment Day and brings the second trilogy (consisting of Infernal Games, Judgment Day, and Fall of Night) to a close.  It also sets up the action for the third and possibly final trilogy coming later this year.

FALL OF NIGHT

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller Joseph Nassise continues his internationally bestselling Templar Chronicles series with Fall of Night!

At long last former Knight Commander Cade Williams has defeated the Adversary, but his victory has come at a terrible cost. His wife, Gabrielle, is no more. His reputation lies in tatters, his trust in others broken. His closest friends and allies are now at risk from the very Order they pledged their lives to maintain. If it could go wrong, it has.

Unable to bear the reality of what he has done, all Cade wants to do is find a deep hole and pull it in after him. Let the world go on without him, for all he loves is lost and he sees no reason to continue.

Cade thinks it is over.

Cade is wrong.

Introducing Matthew Caine

Who is Matthew Caine?

Well, he’s me,  Or at least half of him is.  The other half is my good friend and collaborator, Steven Savile. We’ve gotten together to produce a three book epic fantasy series known as the Aspect Cycle and we’re putting it out under the pseudonym Matthew Caine.

Book one, Ghosts of the Conquered, is nearly 500 pages in length and will be available starting May 27th in the Epic Fantasy Bundle from Storybundle.com.  It will then be available at all the usual vendors, starting with the Nook First program at Barnes & Noble.

Book two, The Swords of Scorn, will follow right on the heels of the first, launching in late June/early July.

 

cover

Some heroes live by the sword.
Some heroes die by the sword.
Some have no idea they are heroes, they are just fighting to stay alive… 

Kane used to be a hero. He was one of the Del Carpio, an honor-bound wanderer committed to keeping the peace in troubled times. He has lived his life as a protector of the weak and vulnerable. Now he doesn’t know what he is. His world has been shattered. His sword brothers are dead, butchered at the funeral of the order’s founder. Kane is the last man standing and he hates himself because he isn’t dead alongside them. There is honor in death, there is no honor in survival because instead of mourning at the graveside he chose to wallow in self-pity and the bottle and it saved his life. There must have been a traitor in their number. That’s the only way it could have happened. But who? And why?

Jenn is the Beggar King’s puppet. She used to be a warrior, a Del Carpio like Kane, until with one stupid mistake she damned herself. Now she doesn’t even recognise herself or the things she is capable of. She used to be a good person. So why is she breaking into a child’s bedroom to commit murder?

Swann, the White Feather, is a legend. He’s also a marked man. The Steel Man, the underworld kingpin, wants him dead and has initiated The Game of Dominion to see that it happens. The Game is a cull to weed out the weak and the old. Everyone is a target, no recriminations. Swann, though, has a gift for staying alive. Which might be a problem for the Steel Man.

This is the story of two soliders beaten down by the madness of war, trying to make their way home. This is the story of two sorcerers, one driven mad by the demands of raising the dead the other absolutely rational in his hatred for mankind and his quest for a lost magic.

This is the story of mad gods and beggar kings.

This is the story of the Ghosts of the Conquered..

Visit Storybundle.com on May 27th to get Ghosts of the Conquered before its available anywhere else!
