The first book in Myke Cole's The Sacred Throne Trilogy, blending epic fantasy with powered armor for fans of the Stormlight Archive.
After a career in the military, police and intelligence services, Myke Cole tracks fugitives as part of the investigative team on CBS' new hit show Hunted. Myke's three tours in Iraq inspired his military fantasy Shadow Ops series. But the work hasn't separated Myke from his nerd roots. He's still a voracious fantasy reader who never misses his weekly game night. Myke's fandoms range from Star Wars to military history. Myke lives in Brooklyn, NY.
"Cole has created a dark medieval world that by the end only has a small sliver of light in it. . . . A must-read for fans of Erika Johansen's Queen of the Tearling series."--Booklist, starred review "Dark but well-depicted."--RT Book Reviews "Ruthless and heartwrenching." --Robin Hobb "Cole weaves... a fantasy world that feels comfortably familiar, then goes to places you'd never expect. You won't stop turning pages until the stunning finish." --Peter V. Brett "Brutal and lovely -- an inventive and poignant fantasy that's rich with keen characters, set in a vivid, fascinating world." --Cherie Priest "A dark fantasy tale with sharp teeth and a hard punch. Heloise is the hero we need, and Myke Cole is the writer to bring her transformation to light." -- Chuck Wendig "Intelligently written, fun, and brutal in equal measures." --Mark Lawrence
