Don’t they look amazing! I received two absolutely stunning books in the post today, yay to the postman for actually delivering them, thanks for that and then massive thanks to both Titan Books for The Cthulu Casebooks – Sherlock Holmes and the Shadwell Shadows by James Lovegrove and Head of Zeus for The Guns of Empire – Book 4 in Django Wexler’s awesome The Shadow Campaigns series.
The Guns of Empire by Django Wexler (Released 3rd November 2016 – UK) – but it’s already available on both Amazon UK and US so I’m guessing the press release that came with the book is wrong.
As the roar of the guns subsides and the smoke of battle clears, the country of Vordan is offered a fragile peace. After their shattering defeats at the hands of brilliant General Janus bet Vhalnich, the opposing powers have called all sides to the negotiating table in hopes of securing an end to the war. Queen Raesinia of Vordan is anxious to see the return of peace, but Janus insists that any peace with the implacable Sworn Church of Elysium is doomed to fail. For their Priests of the Black, there can be no truce with heretics and demons they seek to destroy, and the war is to the death.
Soldiers Marcus d’Ivoire and Winter Ihernglass find themselves caught between their general and their queen. Now, each must decide which leader truly commands their loyalty and what price they might pay for final victory. And in the depths of Elysium, a malign force is rising and defeating it might mean making sacrifices beyond anything they have ever imagined.
The Cthulu Casebooks – Sherlock Holmes and the Shadwell Shadows by James Lovegrove (Released 15th November 2016 – UK).
It is the autumn of 1880, and Dr John Watson has just returned from Afghanistan. Badly injured and desperate to forget a nightmarish expedition that left him doubting his sanity, Watson is close to destitution when he meets the extraordinary Sherlock Holmes, who is investigating a series of deaths in the Shadwell district of London. Several bodies have been found, the victims appearing to have starved to death over the course of several weeks, and yet they were reported alive and well mere days before. Moreover, there are disturbing reports of creeping shadows that inspire dread in any who stray too close. Holmes deduces a connection between the deaths and a sinister drug lord who is seeking to expand his criminal empire. Yet both he and Watson are soon forced to accept that there are forces at work far more powerful than they could ever have imagined. Forces that can be summoned, if one is brave or mad enough to dare…
