Goodreads URL Discuss and Review The Crown of the Conqueror

“Well written, cunningly plotted and above all else a combat story of survival that shows that Thorpe is more than prepared to slaughter a world to establish his own rule. Great stuff.”
Falcata Times

The Crown of the Conqueror (A+) is another excellent fantasy that I strongly recommend … the author has another winner here!”
Fantasy Book Critic

The Crown of the Blood should really have a warning sticker on the front… it’s one of those books that are almost impossible to put down.”

Gav Thorpe works from Nottingham, England and has written more than a dozen novels and even more short stories. Growing up in a tedious town just north of London, he originally intended to be an illustrator but after acknowledging an inability to draw or paint he turned his hand to writing.

Gav spent 14 years as a developer for Games Workshop on the worlds of Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 before going freelance in 2008. It is claimed (albeit solely by our Gav, frankly) that he is merely a puppet of a mechanical hamster called Dennis that intends to take over the world via the global communications network. When not writing, Gav enjoys playing games, cooking, pro-wrestling and smiling wryly.
