Waiting on Wednesday: Cold Iron (Masters & Mages #1) by Miles Cameron. BookBlogger #BookBloggers #Fantasy #Books


Waiting On Wednesday was a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Each Wednesday you got to highlight a book that you were really looking forward to. Unfortunately, the original creator is no longer able to host the meme and it has now linked up with Can’t Wait Wednesday over at Wishful Endings.

This week I’ve chosen:

Cold Iron (Masters & Mages #1) by Miles Cameron.


Aranthur is a student. He showed a little magical talent, is studying at the local academy, and is nothing particularly special. Others are smarter. Others are more talented. Others are quicker to pick up techniques. But none of them are with him when he breaks his journey home for the holidays in an inn. None of them step in to help when a young woman is thrown off a passing stage coach into the deep snow at the side of the road. And none of them are drawn into a fight to protect her.

One of the others might have realised she was manipulating him all along . . .

A powerful story about beginnings, coming of age, and the way choosing to take one step towards violence can lead to a slippery and dangerous slope, this is an accomplished fantasy series driven by strong characters and fast-paced action.

I am a big fan of Cameron’s previous fantasy series, The Traitor Son Cycle and so, I am really keen to read his new work. Cold Iron publishes on August 30th, 2018 by Gollancz.

  1. Ahoy there matey. This sounds fun. I will wait until ye review it I think. I tried to read his book the red knight and abandoned ship. But I liked his writing style enough to give him another shot. This might be the one that works for me. The premise sounds cool. Arrrr!

  2. I got the chance to sit and chat with Miles at a book signing last year, where he read a little bit of this. Looking forward to it.
