By

Rating
For fans of Joe Abercrombie, Robert E. Howard and Scott Lynch comes a diverse and action-packed tale of a warrior out for revenge, from a bold new voice in the fantasy genre. Readers will fall in love with the Red Sonja-like Zosia and her Five Villains. Kameron Hurley says 'an epic fantasy that will surprise you . . . if you think you know what's coming, think again.' Cold Cobalt, the Banshee with a Blade, First Among Villains . . . When there were no more titles to win and no more worlds to conquer, the warrior queen Zosia faked her demise and gave up her legend to history. But when violence finds its way to her door years later, she must round up her adventuring companions -- each surprised to see her alive -- and set out for revenge. Time has not been kind to her old comrades, and some have only their own goals in mind. Not only that, but there's a young, beautiful and skilled general out there, gathering soldiers to her banner for a war against the deadliest of enemies. The girl is using a legend she did not earn, and calling herself by a name that was never hers -- that of Zosia herself.

Reviews

[Alex Marshall] weaves a strong tale in this fantasy debut, with elements of humour, zippy dialogue and moments of grisly darkness * SFX * This lusty debut will have you gasping in one breath and laughing in the next with its cast of multicultural characters, gender-bending soldiers, same-sex coupled kings and warrior women of all ages who throw themselves into the fray. By the latter half of the novel, you realize Marshall is playing a long, glorious game * The Washington Post * A sprawling world that grows larger and deeper with every page. Instantly believable. Zosia and her Five Villains are as fun as they are twisted. -- David Dalglish, author of epic fantasy A DANCE OF CLOAKS An epic fantasy that will surprise you. When was the last time you read one of those? Marshall deftly sets up and subverts expectations at every turn. If you think you know what's coming, think again -- Kameron Hurley, Hugo-winning author of THE MIRROR EMPIRE Brimming with imagination and invention . . . Fabulous! -- John Gwynne, author of MALICE This is a full-on, devil-summoning, pipe-smoking, dagger-wielding brutal quest fantasy...A Crown For Cold Silver's world is a joy to fall into...gripping, and will suit any quest-lover looking for a new addiction. * SciFiNow * This is my favorite kind of fantasy - alternately irreverent and brutal, with a cast of wonderfully scarred and nasty people. Any fans of Steven Erikson, Mark Lawrence, or Joe Abercrombie will love A Crown for Cold Silver; I've just finished it, and I'm already eager for more. -- Django Wexler A Crown for Cold Silver drags epic fantasy through the mud - but it does so with wit, wonder and wisdom. * NPR *
