Hearing some interesting things about Winterbirth by Brian Ruckley.Â Orbit supremo Tim Holman has described it as the most commercial debut fantasy from a British writer that he’s ever read.Â
You can’t say that many times in a career without looking foolish so I’m looking forward to getting an advance copy.Â It’s out in October.
Amazon describes it like this: “It is a godless world. An uneasy truce exists between the human clans and ancient races. But now the clan of the Black Road move south, and their arrival will herald a new age of war and chaos. Behind it all seems to be one man, Aeglyss, a man whose desire for power will only be sated when he has achieved his ultimate goal: immortality.”
I’ll keep you posted…
