The Never King

never king james abbott

A new novel, under a new name… This is what I’ve been working on the past couple of years. It’s a bit of a different direction – very much in the centre of the heroic fantasy sub-genre, rather than the fringes of the fantasy genre – and for that reason we considered a new name. Here’s the blurb:

Xavir Argentum is the legendary former commander of an elite warrior cadre. But Xavir was framed for an atrocity during an epic battle and imprisoned for life, taking him out of the running for the crown itself. Then, while powerless to influence events, the kingdom he’d sworn to protect fell into the hands of a tyrant. It will be up to a few – a mixed bag of rogues and heroes – to right some great wrongs. But first, Xavir must make his escape…

It will be published in May 2017. Not long to wait.
