An emperor's daughter who refuses to be sidelined. A reluctant prince forced to take a stand. In a world of blood and magic, a powerful epic fantasy begins...

Just before her sixteenth birthday, Princess Katerina is informed she will not be inheriting the throne of the Empire of the Ice-Bear--merely because of her sex. Married off to a foreign lord and exiled to a provincial backwater, she is having none of it--and murders her husband on their wedding night. Determined to have her revenge and regain the throne, she will destroy anyone who stands in her way. Katerina embarks on a perilous voyage in search of the wealth and power she needs to achieve her ambitious goals.

And in the Laut Besar, a region of thousands of islands, a pampered prince sets off on a mad quest of his own--to recover the ancient sword of his royal father. Prince Jun, aided only by his decrepit servant and a young fisher girl, tracks the sword and the sorcerer who has stolen it and fled far across the islands. But Jun's fate is drawing him toward the fabulously wealthy city of Singarasam, toward Katerina and a shattering conflict that will change the course of the whole world.

Quotes & Awards

  • With tense political drama and rip-roaring action in a fresh and believable Asian-inspired setting, Gates of Stone reads like a collaboration between Joe Abercrombie and James Clavell. Add ancient feuding sorcerers and a queen who would eat Cersei Lannister for breakfast, and you have the makings of an excellent fantasy debut. Angus Macallan is a compelling new voice in epic fantasy. Peter McLean, author of Priest of Bones
  • I meant to give Gates of Stone a quick look before I started reading it--and couldn't put it down. Angus Macallan is a brilliant storyteller! Taylor Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of the Destroyermen series
  • Macallan . . . has created a solid fantasy debut with a strong yet brutal princess who recalls George R. R. Martin's Cersei Lannister. Epic worldbuilding with extensive Asian influences, especially Indonesian, meets bold characters and detailed battles across land and sea. Library Journal

About the Author

ANGUS MACALLAN is a pseudonym for Angus Donald, a British fiction writer and former journalist who is now based just outside London. He was born in China and lived, worked, and studied in Asia for much of his early adult life. He was awarded a masters degree with honors in social anthropology by the University of Edinburgh, partly based on his fieldwork in Indonesia, which led to a dissertation: "Magic, Sorcery and Society.” He also worked as a journalist in Hong Kong, India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.
