Product description


"Outstanding. Beautifully written, perfectly paced and assured. Kept me reading well into the early hours of the morning. A wonderful first book -- a wonderful book, period -- that should be at the very top of your to-read list."--James Islington, author of The Shadow of What Was Lost on Age of Assassins

"Dead gods, dread magic, and a lead that feels like a breath of fresh air. Great fun."--Peter Newman, author of The Vagrant on Age of Assassins

"Often poignant and always intriguing, Age of Assassins reveals its mysteries with the style of a magic show and the artful grace of a gifted storyteller."--Nicholas Eames, author of Kings of the Wild on Age of Assassins

"Simply unputdownable ... the perfect mix of fantasy and mystery."--Fantasy Book Review on Age of Assassins

"With an original, immersive world that wouldn't let me go and a pair of assassins worth rooting for, Age of Assassins is a pleasure to read. I can't wait for more!"--Melissa Caruso, author of The Tethered Mage on Age of Assassins

"A dark-humored game of cat and mouse between assassins with traitors on all sides."--David Dalglish, author of the Shadowdance series on Age of Assassins

"Age of Assassins is a beguiling story of action and intrigue combined with a poignancy and humor that are as sharp as any blade."--Jon Skovron, author of Hope and Red on Age of Assassins

"Barker undercuts the standard fantasy cliche of the badass lone assassin ... The most interesting treatment of the fantasy assassin trope in a while, and an involving narrative in its own right."--RT Book Reviews on Age of Assassins

"This is one readers will find hard to put down."--Booklist on Age of Assassins

"Age of Assassins is one of the greatest debuts of the year, and RJ Barker is an author to look out for."--Book Nest on Age of Assassins
