We’ve got one great publication day for you! The new rollicking adventure from a fantasy giant, the final book of what’s been a post-apocalyptic rollercoaster of a trilogy and then all manner of revelations in the next instalment of unparalleled romantic adventure that is the Psy and changeling universe.
Stranger of Tempest by Tom Lloyd. This is it. Real epic fantasy with a fun, adventurous heart and a cast of characters who will surprise and enthral you. Guns, magic, and mysterious forces . . . get yourself reading!
Lynx is a mercenary with a sense of honour; a dying breed in the Riven Kingdom. Failed by the nation he served and weary of the skirmishes that plague the continent’s principalities, he walks the land in search of purpose. He wants for little so bodyguard work keeps his belly full and his mage-gun loaded. It might never bring a man fame or wealth, but he’s not forced to rely on others or kill without cause.
Little could compel Lynx to join a mercenary company, but he won’t turn his back on a kidnapped girl. At least the job seems simple enough; the mercenaries less stupid and vicious than most he’s met over the years.
So long as there are no surprises or hidden agendas along the way, it should work out fine.
For a damsel in distress, she was rather more spattered with someone else’s blood than Lynx had expected. And naked. Very naked.
‘Well?’ she demanded.
Lynx could only gape a while longer. Finally his words spilled out in an abashed mumble. ‘Um – come to rescue you, miss.’
‘You’ll have to wait,’ she snapped at the knot of mercenaries crowding the door. ‘I’m busy.’
‘From the very first page, this first book in Tom Lloyd’s new The God Fragments hurls you head-first into the action…the world that Lloyd wraps you in is just as gripping as his storytelling’ SFX
‘Tom Lloyd’s Stranger of Tempest is a fantasy adventure in the modern style, comfortably mixing gritty realism with swords and sorcery. Imagine Steven Erikson’s Malazan marines teaming up with Lara Croft for a mad dash across Joe Abercrombie’s Red Country with an unplanned detour through the forgotten deeps of Moria and you’ll be most of the way there’ Forbidden Planet International
Rig by Jon Wallace brings to explosive conclusion a trilogy that is Blade Runner meets Mad Max with a dash of classic noir. Thoughtful and stylish, this is at the forefront of modern British SF.

Allegiance of Honour by Nalini Singh continues the popular and exciting paranormal fantasy in which old and new characters are brought together after fall of Silence. Psy, Changeling, Human . . . this is a new world for them all.
The Psy-Changeling world has undergone a staggering transformation and now stands at a crossroads. The Trinity Accord promises a new era of cooperation between disparate races and groups. It is a beacon of hope held together by many hands: old enemies. New allies. Wary loners.
But a century of distrust and suspicion can’t be so easily forgotten and threatens to shatter Trinity from within at any moment. As rival members vie for dominance, chaos and evil gather in the shadows and a kidnapped woman’s cry for help washes up in San Francisco, while the Consortium turns its murderous gaze toward a child who is the embodiment of change, of love, of piercing hope: a child who is both Psy . . . and changeling.
To find the lost, protect the vulnerable and save Trinity no one can stand alone. This is a time of loyalty across divisions, of bonds woven into the heart and the soul, of heroes known and unknown standing back to back and holding the line. But is an allegiance of honour even possible with traitors lurking in their midst?
‘The book moves apace and keeps the pressure and intensity of both passion and action alike going to the last page’ Geek Syndicate
