About the Author

Christopher C. Fuchs writes the Earthpillar novels and half-tales from Virginia. His debut novel, Lords of Deception, coming in 2019, is the core of a nonlinear matrix of books and short stories that allow readers to wander and explore an epic alternative Earth through medieval, early modern, and steampunk adventures.

"One of the best fantasy debuts I've read in a while. The writing style takes a little to get used to as it is more old fashioned and closer to Dumas... However, the depth of the universe, the very interesting characters (heroes, villains, major and minor), the action that keeps one guessing (and the quite high body count of characters for that matter) and more generally the narrative force of this novel is such that once one starts understanding what it is all about and gets a feel for the setting, it is really hard to put it down... Overall highly recommended and a top 5 novel of the year for me." --- Liviu Suciul, former co-editor of Fantasy Book Critic

"This debut novel sees a fragile peace imperiled by a cult of assassins... Fuchs' epic fantasy is a marathon of political maneuvers packed with assassins, deadly concoctions, and saber-rattling nation states... Readers, even fans of Game of Thrones, might gape at the volume of characters and territories in rotation. The focus inevitably falls on a handful of players, and the narrative thrill comes from the carefully plotted metamorphosis... By the end of this series opener, the principal cast has undergone dramatic changes in anticipation of wider adventures. A...visceral epic fantasy with plenty of political intrigue." -- Kirkus Reviews

"You can get bad books, average books, good books and then there are books you wish you could wipe from your memory so that you can relive the experience of reading it for the first time again. This is one of those books!...This series is my new obsession... Christopher C. Fuchs...write faster!" -- Zoe Pollock, Book Blogger

"This book (I had an ARC) was really well written - I enjoyed it a lot. It describes a crumbling kingdom on the brink of war with its neighbours, as the nobles beneath the king jockey for position and shadowy powers scheme to bring everything crashing down. The narration rotates through the characters with each chapter (a bit like the style of Game of Thrones) and cleverly reveals the plot as this characters experience it. The story is pacy and I found it hard to put down. Can't wait for book two." --- Jonty S., NetGalley 5-Star Review

"I found all the characters to be intriguing and I loved that it jumped from one character to another." --- Angelique G., NetGalley 5-Star Review

"I really enjoyed the book and am looking forward to the sequel. Characters are well developed and plot moves quickly. The plot was unique." Anthony P., NetGalley 5-Star Review
