SOMETIMES MAGIC IS MORE TROUBLE THAN IT’S WORTH.
Ember Cobb has sunk as low as a man can go – he’s lost his home, his wife, even one of his eyes. As a former spellcaster and imperial legionnaire, the only thing Ember knows how to do is fight. So when he takes a mercenary job at a far-flung fortress, it’s a chance to put the past behind him. To redirect his pain and anger.
But his past isn’t so easily forgotten. Hundreds of miles away in the imperial capital, a brutal murder sparks a desperate grab for power. On one side, Ember’s old friend Colonel Lokke de Calvas, a man of honour and principle. On the other, the mysterious Tydek Mordume, a bureaucrat who will do whatever it takes to win.
Over seven days, the lives of these three men will be forever changed as friendships are tested, rebellion stirs and bio-magical horrors threaten to destroy them all.
Once Called Magic is a fast-paced fantasy novel with swords and sorcery, war and backstabbing politics, mysteries, monsters and a twist ending. It’s the first book in the Oconic Gates series, perfect for fans of Chris Wooding and Mark Lawrence.
