The King of the Crags by Stephen Deas

Stephen Deas has created an epic world, vivid characters, a plot full of betrayals and the most awesome dragons fantasy has seen.

Prince Jehal has murdered, poisoned and betrayed his way to the top.  There is a new speaker for the realms, his opposition has been crushed, now he just has to enjoy the fruits of power.  And yet… he feels more for the wife he married for power than perhaps he should and his lover knows it.

And out in the realms those loyal to the old regime are still plotting.  And there are rumours that the Red Riders, heralds of revolution and doom are on the ride.

And still no-one has found the famous white dragon.  The dragon that, if it lived, will have long since recovered from the effects of the alchemical liquid fed to the dragons of the realms to keep them docile, to block their memories of a time when they ruled and the world burned…

Peer & Press Reviews

Praise for Stephen Deas and The Adamantine Palace

Giving the book its edgier, more contemporary look meanwhile, are the characters and plot.  At first glance, a cast of scheming princes and queens, over the hill kings, and money-hungry sell-swords may seem overly familiar, but Stephen does a great job of constantly surprising the reader.  It’s a fun and entertaining debut that will appeal to fans of both classic and contemporary fantasy.  In short, Gollancz has discovered another winner.

Fantasy Book Critic

It is a difficult thing to write a novel that uses many of the icons of High Fantasy and make it enjoyable; this is something though that Stephen has done here.  The book is an entertaining mix of Pern and Westeros, with the knowing characterisation of Abercrombie and the endearment of Novik.

SFF World

Deas does scary dragons very well.  The plot moves along briskly and surprises occur.  Promising enough and neatly set up for a sequel.
