Description

"I didn't come here to sell my soul. I came here to buy it back."

Once dubbed "The Deadliest Man Alive," Jarrod Torrealday is a former Olympic saber hopeful and medieval weapons expert banned from competition for killing another fencer in a duel.

A young sorcerer from another world offers Jarrod the gig of a lifetime and a shot at redemption: advisor to the war council for a magical realm teetering on the brink of collapse, with a foreign army massing just beyond its borders.

Swept into a treacherous and deadly world of intrigue and conspiracy, Jarrod soon learns that the enemy mastermind is also from Earth, and has laid the foundations for a new kind of war.

Seamlessly blending hard science with elements of classic sword and sorcery, Dragon's Trail is an international bestseller that's being hailed as the pioneering work of a new genre: the Fantasy Technothriller.

Reviews

"Malik's debut novel sparkles with a fresh take on some traditional epic fantasy tropes. . . the action, humor, and intrigue quickly build, showcasing Jarrod as James Bond in tarnished armor. Detailed descriptions of equipment and tactics don't distract from the plot; rather, they add a layer of depth and dimension that carries the tale to the next level. This is a highly enjoyable story for fans of self-aware epic fantasy."
- Publisher's Weekly

"Fantasy with a twist . . . executed with verve and intelligence."
- The BookLife Prize

"This book was incredible. The detailing (from the equipment used to the action in the fight scenes) made the world and characters feel so real and complete, that you don't question anything for a moment."
- Angel Leya, bestselling author of Legend of the Mer

"Hard fantasy, written with great attention paid to every last detail. The world-building is extremely well done and so realistic that I was able to easily fall into this world and enjoy every minute."
-- Forever Lost in Literature

"A fantasy read that delivers on every level. The characters are well developed and real, their struggles thought-provoking, and their relationships deep. The world is vibrant and the story greets you with immediate conflict that never lets up. Honestly, I don't think I've come across a storyline like this!"
- Tiana Warner, #1 bestselling author of Ice Massacre

"A book to savor and soak in all the details."
