Seven Princes

  • Paperback
  • £7.99

The magnificent story of an age of legends - where the children of giants do battle with ancient sorcerers, and no less is at stake than the fate of the world

A sorcerer slaughters the King and his entire court in front of the disbelieving eyes of young Prince D'zan. From that moment, D'zan is driven by one thought - the need to regain his father's stolen throne.

The lives of six foreign Princes are tied to D'zan's fate, as he seeks allies for his cause. In a land where Men and Giants battle side by side against ancient monsters and chilling sorcery, only one thing is certain - war is coming. Kingdoms will clash and blood will run.

Seven Princes. Seven destinies. All will be legend.

A richly detailed background history filled with the legends of many cultures lends depth to a stand-out fantasy series from an author with an exceptional talent for characterization and world building — LIBRARY JOURNAL
Fultz has crafted a rich fantasy world by blending fantasy tropes with elements of Greek myth, Robert E Howard's Hyborian age and even elder god mythos... Seven Princes is an engaging fantasy page-turner which lays fetile ground for the rest of the trilogy to come — SciFiNow
It's a pleasure to read an unabashed over-the-top fantasy epic like John R. Fultz's Seven Princes, in which totally batshit stuff happens every few pages and the wonders aren't rationed at all. Fultz writes at a frenetic pace, as if worried he'll run out of pages before he throws in all the cool stuff he's thought up. It's kind of amazing . . . It's epic with a capital EPIC — i09.com
If you love a good fantasy story then you really have to try this debut from John R Fultz. It has all the elements to please readers with dark villains, a characters decent into evil alongside peoples fighting to save their world from a creeping darkness. Add to this giants, magic and of course plenty of swordplay and the reader has a treat in store, but when backed with a solid authorly voice alongside cracking prose and characters that you want to get to know, and overall it's a title that's hard to put down. Finally throw to the mix a world with infinite possibilities, an author who plays for keeps and I suspect that there will be a vast number of readers who will fall for this authors writing completely. Great stuff. — FALCATA TIMES
A rollercoaster ride that I didn't want to get off at the end. When that ride starts up again, you can guarantee that I'll be in the queue waiting for more — Graeme's Fantasy Book Review
My perfect epic fantasy novel looks a great deal like John R. Fultz's debut, Seven Princes, the first in the Books of the Shaper series. From its very first chapter, in which a kingdom is attacked by a necromancer who claims a right to the land, I found myself immediately enthralled, for here is a fantasy novel that manages to be as dark and gritty as an Abercrombie or Martin creation yet also sits comfortably within the realm of fairy tale, folklore, and myth, with its emotional verisimilitude never threatening to rob the series of magic or heroism, and its classic fantasy tropes never undermining its emotional complexity and heft. — Rob Will Review

Are you Epic, Interplanetary, or Underworld?

Which Daniel Abraham book is best for you?

Whether it's writing urban fantasy as M. L. N. Hanover, epic fantasy under his 'real' name, or space opera as one half of James S. A. Corey (the 'James' part, apparently), there's no doubt that Daniel Abraham is a man of many talents - and many guises. This invariably leads to two questions: why the various names, and where should you begin your Daniel Abraham experience?
