The London Stone

The Nowhere Chronicles Book Three

By Sarah Silverwood

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

An impossible quest, a battle against the greatest odds . . . and three friends who will fight, and maybe die, together . . .

The prophecy has come to pass.
The London Stone has been stolen and the Dark King rules the Nowhere. Only Mona and the new Seer dare to stand against him, leading an underground rebellion in the frozen wasteland . . . but what chance do they have, against both the Army of the Mad and Arnold Mather's soldiers?
There is still hope: if they can recruit a banished race to their cause, maybe Fin and his friends can force a final battle against the Dark King. But that aid will be hard-won, through an almost impossible quest, and even then there are no guarantees.
It will come down to three friends, standing together against all odds. And fulfilling their destinies, whatever the cost . . .

Biographical Notes

Sarah Silverwood continues to avoid having a proper job, which comes as a relief as she has a niggling suspicion that she is now unemployable by normal people. (Publishers don't count. They're not normal people.)
Since the publication of The Double-Edged Sword and The Traitor's Gate she has turned her back on Buckinghamshire and moved to London in search of adventure. Although she's yet to find a hidden world around the corner of one of London's cobbled streets, she keeps looking.

Seven Blades in Black

Sam Sykes
Authors:
Sam Sykes

Acclaimed author Sam Sykes returns with a brilliant new epic fantasy that introduces to an unforgettable outcast magician caught between two warring empires.'Seven Blades in Black offers villains that are as memorable and unique as the heroes. Action, magic, romance and humor mingle well in this mammoth tale. It's an immersive read in a well realized world' Robin Hobb Set in the Scar, where the magical, decadent Imperium battles the upstart, technologically-savvy Revolution, SEVEN BLADES IN BLACK follows the exploits of Sal the Cacophony, the most famous and dangerous of all the rogue mages. Among humans, none have power like mages. And among mages, none have will like Sal the Cacophony. Once revered, now vagrant, she walks a wasteland scarred by generations of magical warfare.The Scar, a land torn between powerful empires, is where rogue mages go to disappear, disgraced soldiers go to die and Sal went with a blade, a gun and a list of names she intended to use both on.But vengeance is a flame swift extinguished. Betrayed by those she trusted most, her magic torn from her and awaiting execution, Sal the Cacophony has one last tale to tell before they take her head.All she has left is her name, her story and the weapon she used to carved both.Vengeance is its own reward.PRAISE FOR SEVEN BLADES IN BLACK'Sykes is a master at taking familiar elements of fantasy and stirring them to a wicked, wholly original churn. In Sal the Cacophony, Sykes has crafted a protagonist for the ages. Ludicrous, wicked, delightful' Pierce Brown, author of Red Rising'Exciting and inventive. I never realized how much I needed wizard-hunting gunslingers in my life. Buy Sam's book' Peter V. Brett, author of The Painted Man'Seven Blades in Black is terrific. The tale of Sal the Cacophony is delightfully sarcastic and deeply sorrowful. If you've ever wanted to read Final Fantasy: The Book, this is it' Nicholas Eames, author of Kings of the Wyld'By the end of the first page, you'll know Sam is in love with his characters. By the end of the second, you'll know you are too' Myke Cole, author of The Armored Saint'Gunslingers and mad mages and monsters, oh my. Sykes' latest is a brutal and vulgar epic yet still fun enough that - and I say this as the highest of compliments - makes me wish like hell it ends up with an adaptation into a role-playing game' Chuck Wendig

Let me help you. Let me out.'
