Best Fantasy Book for May 2016

General Zosia To-Do List

May brings the sequel to our favorite new grimdark revenge fantasy series!

A Blade of Black Steel

Cover - A Blade of Black Steel - LargeAuthor: Alex Marshall
Release Date: May 24, 2016
Series: The Crimson Empire Trilogy #2
First Book: A Crown for Cold Silver

The Crimson Empire feels (in the best ways) like Joe Abercrombie’s First Law Series mixed with Mark Lawrence’s Broken Empire Trilogy, but Crimson Empire also provides several distinct differences that make it both unique and highly entertaining.

Speaking specifically, using a fifty-something female primary POV character (General Zosia) breaks the mold on almost every fantasy cliché, and Zosia’s unstoppable drive for revenge combined with her masterfully creative use of profanity make her one of our favorite fantasy characters of all time, even with only two published works.

From the Publisher: After five hundred years, the Sunken Kingdom has returned, and brought with it a monstrous secret that threatens to destroy every country on the Star.

As an inhuman army gathers on its shores, poised to invade the Immaculate Isles, the members of the Cobalt Company face an ugly choice: abandon their dreams of glory and vengeance to combat a menace from another realm, or pursue their ambitions and hope the Star is still there when the smoke clears.
