We are thrilled to be bringing you a sneak peak at the cover for one of this year’s most exciting debuts!
Any hot-blooded fantasy fan is going to find The Red Knight pretty hard to resist. You’ll be hearing more about Miles Cameron’s amazing debut over the coming months, but to whet your appetite here’s a little something about the story and an exclusive first look at the UK cover.
It’s not quite perfect yet! But the sharp-eyed amongst you will see this is not just a cover, it’s also a postcard . . . we’ll be giving them away at Eastercon this year, in the goodie-bags and from the Gollancz stand, so make sure you get yours! And scroll down for a sneak peak about what the novel, and the talented Miles Cameron, have in store.
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 the head from your shoulders. But if standing and fighting is hard, leading a company of men – or worse, a company of mercenaries – against the smart, deadly creatures of the Wild is even harder.
It takes 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 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 . . .
We’ll be releasing The Red Knight into The Wild in September 2012.
