Brilliant and ambitious, Remezov is already recognised as the best earthquake predictor in the business. He travels to the ancient city of Hanemark to be received into the powerful Guild of Geographers, the youngest inductee in decades. On the way he finds a dead scientist’s diary, warning of an imminent invasion. Nonsense, of course—except the diary explains otherwise puzzling occurrences. Does he surrender it to the Guild, risking accusations he killed the scientist and stole the diary—all for an invasion that may never come—or does he keep it and use it to make his name? He has to decide soon, because he’s being hunted by something leaving a trail of mutilated bodies across the city.

The lizards are coming…

New Release: The Blacksmith by Barbara Howe

perf6.000x9.000.indd

IFWG is pleased to announce the non-North American release of The Blacksmith by New Zealand author, Barbara Howe.  The wonderful cover art is by Catherine Archer-Wills. The North American release will occur on 23rd September 2019.

“This is the third of the Reforging series by Howe,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG, “and it just gets better and better. Barbara shows us how to spin a convincing and evocative fantasy story, and suck the reader right in.”

How is the king like a blacksmith? He has a hammer as well as a sword.

Duncan Archer has heard that riddle many times, but he doesn’t know what it means. No one does, not even the members of the Royal Guild of Swordsmiths. It isn’t Duncan’s business anyway. Good sense tells him to stick to beating iron into shape for the residents of his backwater town, and not worry about the king and his nobles pounding Frankland into the ground.

But good sense never stopped Duncan from poking his nose into everyone else’s business. If it had, he might not be a fugitive, the subject of the biggest manhunt in the country’s history.

With a charge of murder hanging over his head like a sword, understanding that riddle becomes much more urgent…

The Blacksmith is available through all good bricks and mortar and online stores in non-North American regions. North America will have the release on 23rd September 2019.

NEVER, EVER, LIE TO A WARLOCK

He never promised happily ever after, but Lucinda is still dismayed by how quickly reality intrudes on her fairy tale. Assassination attempts and lightning strikes disturb her honeymoon, but the return home brings no peace of mind. When the discovery of a magical conspiracy shakes her faith in everything she trusts, she vows to expose the Fire Warlock’s most shameful secret and see justice done. 

As a hot summer draws towards a violent end, Lucinda teeters between terror and rage. She’d be less angry about risking her life if she didn’t suspect her husband – her hero! – intends to step aside and let her die.

For those who haven’t read the magic of Book 1 of the series, The Locksmith, it can be found in all good bricks and mortar and online stores.

From every direction nine individuals of varied races and walks of life are drawn to the village of Evilhalt on the shores of Lake Erave. A foundling, a princess; a huntress and secret policeman; a shepherd and a huntress; a tribesman and a Battle Mage.; a Ghazi…

As they journey each faces trials beyond those of normal travellers. On arrival they meet a local leatherworker and militiaman, Stefan, who just wants more of life than what seems to be offered to him. They uncover deep, dark mysteries which hints of greater evil. Together, and for a mix of reasons, they set off to face their destiny.

Intimations of Evil is the first book of a series that sees worlds reshaped and myths confounded in a far-flung fantasy adventure.
