The Silver Kings by Stephen Deas– The Silver King, half-god, legend and myth, is returning. Once he fought his brother, the Black Moon, and his dragons, and was defeated. But the Black Moon was also weakened, and a millennia has passed. Humanity has grown used to a world without gods, a world where they were masters of all – including the terrifying dragons. The Silver Kings is the triumphant conclusion to one of the most brutal and wide-ranging fantasy series of recent years. The Silver Kings is out now in trade paperback and eBook.

S.N.U.F.F. by Victor Pelevin– Already a bestseller in Russia, this book will captivate you from the first page. Damilola Karpov is a pilot. Living in Byzantium, a huge sky city floating above the land of Urkaine, he makes his living as a drone pilot who records the events unfolding in Urkaine or, with the weapons aboard his drone, by making a newsworthy event happen for his employers: ‘Big Byz Media’. His recordings are known as S.N.U.F.F.: Special Newsreel/Universal Feature Film. S.N.U.F.F. is a daring post-apocalyptic novel, exploring the conflict between the nation of Urkaine, its causes and its relationship with the city ‘Big Byz’ above.

Steeple by Jon Wallace– Kenstibec is a Ficial – a genetically engineered artificial life form; tough, skilled, hard to kill. Or at least he was. He’s lost the nanotech that constantly repaired him. Now Kestibec must take a trip to the pinnicle of our failed civilisation. The Steeple is a one thousand storey tower that looms over the wreckage of London. It is worshipped, feared and haunted by attack droids and cannibals. And the location of a secret that just might save Kenstibec’s life. Steeple is out now in trade paperback and eBook.
