The world of Kuf, an ancient Assurian Empire, dominant, prestigious and thought to be invincible, is about to be shaken to its very foundations. An exile from the empire, the Great King’s brother, hires a force of ten thousand elite mercenaries of a legendary race known as the Macht to take the throne by force. But when their employer is killed, the Ten Thousand find themselves abandoned. This is the story of their fight for freedom, and marks the start of a brand new series by one of the finest writers of fantasy around.We've read the first chapters of this... Boy, are you fantasy readers in for a treat later next year.
For Paul Kearney's The Ten Thousand.
