The Bone Shard Daughter takes classic multiple-POV fantasy and breathes fresh air into it, offering a world of twisted magic and complex characters that had me racing to the final page!
I’m always in the mood for interesting new fantasy, but somehow I missed Soulkeeper when it first came out. With the sequel, Ravencaller, just out in March, Orbit were kind enough to send me over copies of both so I could catch up – and I’m glad they did, because Soulkeeper is a huge amount of fun!

I’m bringing you an exciting action-packed extract from the first chapter, where Tau, our main character, faces his first battle against the marauding hedeni…
