The Black Mausoleum has LANDED!!!!!

Fantastic news for all fans of The Memory of Flames book four The Black Mausoleum has just been released and apparently a further 2 books are planned. Stephen Deas in our opinion is one the best writers of dragon fantasy fiction for a long time. It's fast moving and action-fuelled fantasy laced with irony, a razor sharp characters, dialogue to die for and dragons to die by. And we are thrilled that he has signed, lined, dated, doodled and numbered some rare books for your collection.
The book starts two years since the events of the Order of the Scales. Across the realms, dragons are still hatching. Hatching, and hatching free. Skorl is an Ember, a soldier trained from birth to fight dragons. He is a living weapon, one-shot only, saturated with enough dragon-poison to bring down a monster all on his own. Misanthrope, violent and a drunk, to fulfil his purpose and slay a dragon, means to be eaten. Now Skorl has a choice: he can hang for his crimes, or he can go with the last of the Adamantine Men, fighting against an enemy he was born to face. Rat is an Outsider. He's on the run and he's stumbled onto something that's going to make him rich beyond all his dreams. It's just a shame that the end of the world has started without him. Kataros is an alchemist, one of the order responsible for keeping the dragons in check. One of the order that has just failed, and disastrously so. Two men, one woman. One chance to save the world from a storm of dragons ...

So if you are a fan of Tolkien or Rothfuss then this book is for you!
