A Promise of Fire is an award winning fantasy debut with snappy dialogue, a kick ass heroine and a warlord who’s not quite as ruthless as he seems, set against a world on the brink of battle, full of gods, magicians, dragons, giants, and endless possibilities! Intrigued? We knew you would be.
In the icy north, a powerful elite ruled by a viscous Queen have grown to dominate the world, using magic as might. But now a rebellion is stirring in the magic-poor south, where for the first time ever, a warlord has succeeded in uniting the tribal nations. Stuck in the middle is Cat – circus performer and soothsayer – safely hidden behind heavy make-up, bright colours and the harmless illusion of the circus. But Cat’s not all that she seems.
When she’s captured by the Southern warlord Griffin and faced with dragons, homicidal mages, rival Gods and the traitorous longings of her own heart, will she be able to keep up her act or will her true powers reveal themselves?
A real gem of a read for fans of Keri Arthur, Kim Harrison and Maria Lewis.
