The Path of Anger is one of the most hotly anticipated fantasy debuts this year – not only for us, either! This book is going to be a real international event, with simultaneous publication planned with Bragelonne in France , Heyne in Germany, Planeta in Spain and Mynx in Holland. It’s going to be amazing. But don’t just take our word for it (or our gif!) here’s a little teaser for the book is actually about:

 An Empire has been overthrown. An Emperor has been murdered. A Republic has risen from the ashes . . . but the old grudges still remain. 

Now an assassin has begun to strike, systematically, from the shadows.

There will be death.
This is the path of anger . . .
