Staff Reviews


Fans of battle scenes, revenge plots, kick-ass females, creative demonology, and non-hetero-normative characters rejoice. Crown for Cold Silver is the fantastic start to a fresh fantasy series that turns so many of the genre’s tropes on their heads. It's fun, feisty, and ferocious. BONUS: Book 2—A Blade of Black Steel—was recently released, and it’s excellent as well.

— Nici

This is the Game of Thrones meets Guardians of the Galaxy that you never knew you wanted. Queerness, feminism, and depth of character are not only present but taken for granted. If you just want to go along for the ride...

— Jax

Ignore everything about the cover, I promise this book is the fantasy book of your dreams. Zosia fought her war with a band of misfits, won her crown, but in the end everything turned out worse than expected. Each character is incredibly fleshed out and the story takes the tropes of the genre and smashes them to pieces. I was mad I didn't pick it up sooner.

Description


"It was all going so nicely, right up until the massacre."
Twenty years ago, feared general Cobalt Zosia led her five villainous captains and mercenary army into battle, wrestling monsters and toppling an empire. When there were no more titles to win and no more worlds to conquer, she retired and gave up her legend to history.
Now the peace she carved for herself has been shattered by the unprovoked slaughter of her village. Seeking bloody vengeance, Zosia heads for battle once more, but to find justice she must confront grudge-bearing enemies, once-loyal allies, and an unknown army that marches under a familiar banner.
FIVE VILLAINS. ONE LEGENDARY GENERAL. A FINAL QUEST FOR VENGEANCE.
