Snakewood by Adrian Selby

‘A lifetime of enemies has its own price.’

Once they were a band of mercenaries who shook the pillars of the world through their cunning, their closely guarded alchemical brews and stone cold steel.  Whoever met their price won.

Now, their glory days behind them and their genius leader in hiding, the warriors known as the ‘Twenty’ are being hunted down and eliminated one by one.

Filled with unique voices and incredible worldbuilding, this stunning debut novel will please any fan of Joe Abercrombie or Mark Lawrence

Peer & Press Reviews

Set in a brutal world of subtle magic, clashing empires, and commercial interests, this is an impressive fantasy debut.  Selby demonstrates the command of style, character, plotting, and world building of a seasoned author.


Covering ground well-trodden by Joe Abercrombie, with a similar use of earthy language and extreme violence, the story offers an original and effective twist with the use of potions, plants, and poisons on the battlefield.

Library Journal

A lot to enjoy, especially if you are a fan of dark, gritty, old-soldier stories.
