The Tide Child Trilogy, Fantasy

The first book in a bold new epic fantasy trilogy from the British Fantasy Society Award nominated RJ Barker, author of AGE OF ASSASSINS

'Excellent . . . one of the most interesting and original fantasy worlds I've seen in years' Adrian Tchaikovsky

TWO NATIONS AT WAR. A PRIZE BEYOND COMPARE.

For generations, the Hundred Isles have built their ships from the bones of ancient dragons to fight an endless war.
Then the dragons disappeared. But the battles for supremacy persisted.
When the first dragon in centuries is spotted in far-off waters, both sides see a chance to shift the balance of power in their favour. Because whoever catches it will win not only glory, but the war.

A brilliantly imagined saga of honour, glory, and warfare, THE BONE SHIPS starts an epic new trilogy from David Gemmell Award-nominated RJ Barker.

'An epic tale of duty and obligation and honour, and what bravery really means. . . . I can't recommend it enough'

RJ Barker

RJ Barker lives in Leeds with his wife, son and a collection of questionable taxidermy, odd art, scary music and more books than they have room for. He grew up reading whatever he could get his hands on, and has always been 'that one with the book in his pocket'. Having played in a rock band before deciding he was a rubbish musician, RJ returned to his first love, fiction, to find he is rather better at that. As well as his debut epic fantasy series, the Wounded Kingdom trilogy (Age of Assassins, Blood of Assassins and King of Assassins) RJ has written short stories and historical scripts which have been performed across the country. He has the sort of flowing locks any cavalier would be proud of.
