Reviews

  • "An epic tale of murder and betrayal, bloodshed and romance. Gripping from the first page, the reader is swept up in this colourful and convincing portrayal of an Emperor and his realm, under seige. Well-researched and cinematic in its imagery, this is a faced-paced and exciting debut"

  • "It’s a world which Harper brings exuberantly to life, clearly revelling in its teeming, tumultuous extravagance"
