Dark, funny and intricately plotted, the first novel in R. S. Ford’s Steelhaven trilogy is perfect for fans of Joe Abercrombie and George R. R. Martin.

Welcome to Steelhaven . . . watch your back.

‘You’ll find yourself looking forward to what Ford dreams up next’ SFX

Under the reign of King Cael the Uniter, this vast cityport on the southern coast has for years been a symbol of strength, maintaining an uneasy peace throughout the Free States.

But now a long shadow hangs over the city, in the form of the dread Elharim warlord, Amon Tugha.

When his herald infiltrates the city, looking to exploit its dangerous criminal underworld, and a terrible dark magick that has long been buried once again begins to rise, it could be the beginning of the end. . .
