We Ride the Storm

‘Highly recommended’ John Gwynne

‘Madson is an exciting new author in fantasy’ Mark Lawrence

‘A complex tale of war, politics and lust for power’ Guardian

AS AN EMPIRE DIES, THREE WARRIORS WILL RISE. THEY MUST RIDE THE STORM OR DROWN IN ITS BLOOD.

The kingdom of Kisia is divided, held together only by the will of the god-emperor. When an act of betrayal shatters an alliance with the neighbouring land of Chiltae, all that has been won comes crashing down.

Now, as the fires of war spread, a warrior, an assassin and a princess must chase their ambitions, no matter the cost.

War built the Kisian Empire. And now war will tear it down.

FANTASY BOOK REVIEW
I loved this book . . . It is-hands down-one of the best self-published books I've ever read
FANTASY INN
A visceral, intriguing, intense and emotionally charged ride. I cannot wait to see where the next book takes us and eagerly await its arrival. I'd strongly recommend this bloody and bold tale to fans of Mark Lawrence [and] George R. R. Martin
GRIMDARK MAGAZINE
Breathtakingly triumphant . . . it has become one of my favourite books of all time . . . a gripping, evocative hurricane of emotions that constantly took my breath away
NOVEL NOTIONS
I loved this book so much it's almost ridiculous . . . We Ride the Storm is dark fantasy done right. There's a lot going on and it never stops. It's also beautiful and deep, with characters that jump off the page. This book really surprised me. I expected to like it. I didn't expect to love it

FANTASY BOOK CRITIC
I loved this book! A lot
BOOKNEST
Intricate, compelling and vividly imagined, this is the first in a new series that I am hugely excited about. Visceral battles, complex politics and fascinating worldbuilding bring Devin's words to life
Anna Stephens, author of GODBLIND
Set in an Asian-inspired world with echoes of ancient China and the Mongol Empire this is a tale that hits all the right spots. Imaginative world building, a pace that builds perfectly to a heart-pounding finale and captivating, believable characters. There's a lot to love here. Highly recommended
John Gwynne, author of MALICE
A complex tale of war, politics and lust for power
GUARDIAN
We Ride the Storm is a whirlwind of a book, action-packed, bloody, brutal, emotional, fast-paced, frenetic and gripping
THE TATTOOED BOOK GEEK
With prose that rises above most novels, Devin Madson paints evocative scenes to build an engaging story. Highly entertaining, We Ride the Storm is certainly worth your attention and Madson is an exciting new author in fantasy
Mark Lawrence
Fans of George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series will appreciate the feudal political manoeuvring, shifting alliances, and visceral descriptions of combat and its aftermath in this series
BOOKLIST
Madson has built a living, breathing world of Empire and fury. We Ride the Storm grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go
