The King's Blood
Book 2 of the Dagger and the Coin
By Daniel Abraham
Epic fantasy sequel to acclaimed series launch THE DRAGON'S PATH, by the author of the Long Price Quartet
War casts its shadow over the lands that dragons once ruled. Only the courage of a young woman with the mind of a gambler and loyalty to no one stands between hope and universal darkness.
The high and powerful will fall, the despised and broken shall rise up and everything will be remade.
And an old, broken-hearted warrior and an apostate priest will begin a terrible journey with an impossible goal: destroy a Goddess before she eats the world.
Daniel Abraham's short stories have been nominated for the Nebula award and included in Gardner Dozois's Year's Best Science Fiction anthology. He lives in New Mexico with his wife and daughter.

The King's Blood is the real deal, and cements Abraham's new series as one of the best new Fantasy series in recent years. If you're looking for something to read while you wait for the next George R. R. Martin book, Abraham's The Dagger and the Coin is sure to satisfy — A DRIBBLE OF INK
Absolutely massive recommendation as my favourite adult book of the year so far, my favourite fantasy book for many years, and the best adult series I'm currently reading by a long way — THE BOOKBAG
A very fine epic fantasy novel . . . notable for its focus on finely-judged characterisation as much as the more traditional furniture of the genre. It's also a fast, addictive read that elevates The Dagger and the Coin into the position of one of the finest in-progress fantasy series around at the moment — THE WERTZONE
