Jen Williams’ bestselling epic fantasy series, The Copper Cat, is coming to the States and with it two stunning new covers. Illustrator Gene Mollica has done a fantastic job of capturing the sword and sorcery atmosphere of The Copper Promise and its sequel The Iron Ghost, and Jen herself is thrilled with the positive response.
Here’s a reminder of the synopsis:
There are some tall stories about the caverns beneath the Citadel – about magic and mages and monsters and gods.
Wydrin of Crosshaven has heard them all, but she’s spent long enough trawling caverns and taverns with her companion Sir Sebastian to learn that there’s no money to be made in chasing rumours.
But then a crippled nobleman with a dead man’s name offers them a job: exploring the Citadel’s darkest depths. It sounds like just another quest with gold and adventure … if they’re lucky, they might even have a tale of their own to tell once it’s over.
These reckless adventurers will soon learn that sometimes there is truth in rumour. Sometimes a story can save your life.
The Copper Promise is due to be released in the U.S. on 5th July, with The Iron Ghost following in January 2017.
Here’s what the critics had to say about The Copper Promise:
“The Copper Promise is near-perfect fantasy adventure fun and a breath of fresh air in a genre choking on its own grittiness. Read it and remind yourself what made you fall in love with fantasy books.”
– Starburst Magazine 10/10
“There are pirates and magic, demons and disciples, undead soldiers and noble knights. If you’re thinking this sounds like a lot of fun you’d be gods damned right.”
– Den Patrick
“…a killer of a fantasy novel that is indicative of how the classic genre of sword and sorcery is not only still very much alive, but also still the best the genre has to offer.”
– Jet Black Ink
