The Path of Anger by Antoine Rouaud

There will be blood.  There will be death.  This is the path of anger…

Dun-Cadal has been drinking his life away for years.  Betrayed by his friends – who turned their back on their ideals in favour of a new republic – and grief stricken at the loss of his apprentice, who saved his life on the battlefield and whom he trained as a knight in exchange; he’s done with politics, with adventure, and with people.

But people aren’t finished with him – not yet.  Viola is a young historian looking for the last Emperor’s sword, and her search not only brings her to Dun-Cadal, it’s also going to embroil them both in a series of assassinations.  Because Dun-Cadal’s turncoat friends are being murdered, one by one… by someone who kills in the unmistakable style of an Imperial assassin…

Peer & Press Reviews

A club sandwich of present-day action and flashback explainers that blend into each other to keep the pacing brisk.

Dean Evans, SFX Magazine

Rouaud’s slow reveal of the backstory promises intriguing future volumes of fantasy noir with a distinctly continental sensibility.

Eric Brown, The Guardian
