All paths lead to war…

Marcus’s hero days are behind him. He knows too well that even the smallest war still means somebody’s death. When his men are impressed into a doomed army, staying out of a battle he wants no part of requires some unorthodox steps.

Cithrin is an orphan, ward of a banking house. Her job is to smuggle a nation’s wealth across a war zone, hiding the gold from both sides. She knows the secret life of commerce like a second language, but the strategies of trade will not defend her from swords.

Geder, sole scion of a noble house, has more interest in philosophy than in swordplay. A poor excuse for a soldier, he is a pawn in these games. No one can predict what he will become.

Falling pebbles can start a landslide. A spat between the Free Cities and the Severed Throne is spiraling out of control. A new player rises from the depths of history, fanning the flames that will sweep the entire region onto The Dragon’s Path—the path to war.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[A] rich, exciting, and fresh epic…With a deft and light hand, Abraham questions and explores the fantasy-world assumptions that most authors take for granted, telling an enjoyable and genuinely innovative adventure story along the way.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “This complex and carefully orchestrated tale…never takes the easy path of good versus evil; the characters embody both moral strengths and weaknesses, and this gives them depth and solid grounding…Readers who enjoy intricate plots and true-to-life characters will appreciate this fantasy series opener.”

    Library Journal

  • “This ain’t your grandpa’s Tolkien…It’s as if Clint Eastwood went to Narnia…A pleasure.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Abraham deftly steps into this novel with a sense of familiarity as well as bringing a new and exciting world to life. Taking the more mundane aspects of life (banking, trade, caravans) and weaving them into a complex tale of politics, tragedy, maneuvering, and magic, Abraham’s strengths are in his lushly detailed world and his ability to make his characters walk through the reader’s mind.”

    RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

  • “Really damn good…As the plotlines take root and braid together, [Abraham’s] stereotypes shed their stock skins and start taking big, deep breaths…It’s a testament to Abraham’s sheer storytelling skill that he renders a showdown across a counting table as thrilling and fraught with consequence as any number of massacres, romances, and throne-room power plays. Comforting yet complex.”
