The new star of British fantasy returns with THE WAKING FIRE, a thrilling new epic fantasy of exploration and adventure, spies and assassins, explosive magic and the battle for empire.






Claydon Torcreek is a bareknuckle brawler and small-time thief, who cares little for matters of empire. Yet the failure of his latest heist (not to mention some old-fashioned blackmail) has left him with no choice but to accept a dangerous mission in service to his country.



War is coming, and Clay is almost certainly going to be on the losing side . . . unless he can hunt down a fabled creature whose valuable blood might just turn the tide - if it even exists. Clay has handled many things in his time (most of them illegal), but nothing as priceless as his nation's future.

Anthony Ryan lives in London and is the New York Times bestselling author of the Raven's Shadow trilogy. He previously worked in a variety of roles for the UK government, but now writes full time. His interests include art, science and the unending quest for the perfect pint of real ale.

A marvelous piece of imagination with plenty of twists, a refreshingly different setting, and excellent world-building. A great read -- Mark Lawrence
