The greatest empire of them all began with a road.

The Circle - a thousand miles of perilous forests and warring clans. No one has ever tamed such treacherous territory before, but ex-soldier Teyr Amondsen, veteran of a hundred battles, is determined to try.

With a merchant caravan protected by a crew of skilled mercenaries, Amondsen embarks on a dangerous mission to forge a road across the untamed wilderness that was once her home. But a warlord rises in the wilds of the Circle, uniting its clans and terrorising its people. Teyr's battles may not be over yet...

All roads lead back to war.

A very dark fantasy story with a distinct western flair . . . absolutely fascinating and incredibly original * Sense of Wonder * Covering ground well-trodden by Joe Abercrombie, with a similar use of earthy language and extreme violence, the story offers an original and effective twist with the use of potions, plants, and poisons on the battlefield . . . relish the well-choreographed action scenes in this debut fantasy * Library Journal * Immensely readable . . . a fantasy novel that remembers that battles leave all kinds of scars * B&N Science Fiction and Fantasy blog * Set in a brutal world of subtle magic, clashing empires, and commercial interests, this is an impressive fantasy debut. Selby demonstrates the command of style, character, plotting, and world building of a seasoned author * Booklist * Uniquely dark and gritty fantasy. An intriguing debut * Bibliosanctum * Snakewood's narrative voices are the real strength here . . . contemporary and as grimdark as it comes * British Fantasy Society * A lot to enjoy, especially if you are a fan of dark, gritty, old-soldier stories * Fantasy Faction * Grim mercenaries and badass alchemists brought to life by a bold, assured storyteller -- Peter Newman, author of THE VAGRANT
