Battlemage

Age of Darkness, Book 1

By Stephen Aryan

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

An action-packed and magic-fuelled fantasy novel from a British debut author, Stephen Aryan's Battlemage features mages fighting an empire-spanning war for a homeland that fears and despises them. Shortlisted for the 2016 David Gemmell Awards.

'I can command storms, summon fire and unmake stone,' Balfruss growled. 'It's dangerous to meddle with things you don't understand.'

BALFRUSS is a battlemage, sworn to fight and die for a country that fears his kind.
VARGUS is a common soldier - while mages shoot lightning from the walls of his city, he is down on the front line getting blood on his blade.
TALANDRA is a princess and spymaster, but the war will force her to risk everything, and make the greatest sacrifice of all.

Magic and mayhem collide in this explosive epic fantasy from a major new talent.
