February releases

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

February is not a huge month in term of spotlight releases in Fantasy but still, The Fell Sword could be one of the best books of the year.


The Copper Promise
Jen Williams
February 13th
There are some far-fetched rumours about the caverns beneath the Citadel… 
Some say the mages left their most dangerous secrets hidden there; others, that great riches are hidden there; even that gods have been imprisoned in its darkest depths. 
For Lord Frith, the caverns hold the key to his vengeance. Against all the odds, he has survived torture and lived to see his home and his family taken from him … and now someone is going to pay. For Wydrin of Crosshaven and her faithful companion, Sir Sebastian Caverson, a quest to the Citadel looks like just another job. There’s the promise of gold and adventure. Who knows, they might even have a decent tale or two once they’re done. 
But sometimes there is truth in rumour. 
Soon this reckless trio will be the last line of defence against a hungry, restless terror that wants to tear the world apart. And they’re not even getting paid.

The Fell Sword
The Traitor Son Cycle book 2
Miles Cameron
February 15th - UK (March in NA)
THE RED KNIGHT was one of the most acclaimed fantasy debuts of 2012 - and now he rides again. Prepare for one epic battle... 
In The Fell Sword the Red Knight and his company go across the mountains to the Morea and Thrake - those are the kingdoms to the east of Alba - to put down what appears to be a local rebellion and proves to be larger. In the process, the readers will get to see a little more of the meta-plot. 
The Red Knight will meet a beautiful princess. Jean de Vrailly will grow in power and worldly glory. Amicia will develop her own power while getting into a quarrel with the church that will have long term effects for everyone. Readers will meet the Faery Knight and the irks are developed as people and not ‘enemies’. The sides shift, and the stakes grow.

I've been looking forward to A Copper Promise for a while now. I was a bit miffed to hear that it won't be released in North America (at least not yet). I don't mind ordering from Amazon UK but I would have liked to avoid paying the additional shipping charges.
