Last week we announced that we’re bringing debut fantasy author Miles Cameron to the Gollancz list this year, with his epic, blood-soaked series starring The Red Knight.
There will be more information coming over the next few weeks, to whet your appetite, but for the moment feast your eyes on the fabulous cover art, by the talented Kerem Beyit!
What’s more . . . we can even share the cover copy with you, to give you a hint of what’s to come:
Forget George and the Dragon.
Forget fancy knights and daring deeds.
This is for real.
This is bloody dirty work.
Twenty-eight florins a month is a huge price to pay, for a man to stand between you and the Wild.
Twenty-eight florins a month is nowhere near enough when a wyvern’s jaws snap shut on your helmet in the hot stink of battle, and the beast starts to rip your head from your shoulders. But if standing and fighting is hard, leading a company of men against the smart, deadly creatures of the Wild is even harder.
It requires all the advantages of birth, training, and the luck of the devil, to do it.
The Red Knight has all three, he has youth on his side, and he’s determined to turn a profit. So when he hires his company of mercenaries out to protect an Abbess and her nunnery it’s just another job. The abbey is rich, the nuns are pretty and the monster preying on them is nothing he can’t deal with.
Only it’s not just a job. It’s going to be a war . . .
