    The Silver Skull

    The first Swords of Albion review is in, from US magazine RT Book Reviews. Classed as four-and-a-half stars (dammit, how did I lose that last star?), it says:

    ”The new Swords of Albion series, set in an alternate Elizabethan England, gets off to a smashing start. The historical detail sets a believable backdrop, and the main character, a spy, could pass for a fantastical James Bond. Chadbourn sets a fast pace, pitting his characters against supernatural threats with a bit of horror thrown in. FANTASTIC – keeper.”

    Which gaves a flavour of what’s in there. I should soon be able to showcase the UK cover art, but if you want to put in an advance order, you can do so here:


    Barnes & Noble

    I’ll do more links when other bookstores put them on online, and I’ll include any indie bookstores if you get in touch.

      You’re reviewed in RT mag? Cool! :)

      Also, they don’t give 5-star reviews. 4.5 is the highest (though a few books get the 4.5 plus a ‘Top pick’ rating).

      Thanks. Didn’t know that!
