A novel by

 
 
In this debut novel and series starter, the last member of a murdered House searches for a missing nobleman, and uncovers clues about his own tortured past. Rune Saint John, last child of the fallen Sun Court, is hired to search for Lady Judgment's missing son, Addam, on New Atlantis, the island city where the Atlanteans moved after ordinary humans destroyed their original home. With his companion and bodyguard, Brand, he questions Addam's relatives and business contacts through the highest ranks of the nobles of New Atlantis. But as they investigate, they uncover more than a missing man: a legendary creature connected to the secret of the massacre of Rune's Court. In looking for Addam, can Rune find the truth behind his family's death and the torments of his past?

Genre: Urban Fantasy

Praise for this book

"This is a highly enjoyable read: take the witty noir of Dashiell Hammett’s The Thin Man, kick it to an alternate present day, add equal portions of action and magic, garnish with a sprig of romance, and you have The Last Sun. A great recipe." - Eric Scott Fischl

"Jaw-dropping worldbuilding, fluent prose, and an equal blend of noir and snark make for that most delicious of fantasy adventures, an out-of-this-world tale that feels pressingly real. A smart and savvy joy." - A J Hartley

"Absolutely sensational. Edwards takes all the familiar pawns of urban fantasy and makes royalty of them in his debut. We’re invited into an alternative, historical world of staggering breadth and realization. The central characters, Rune and Brand, combine the loyalty of Frodo and Samwise with the sacrilege of a pairing like Tyrion and Bronn. When thrown in beside fascinating magical systems, breathtaking prose, and a relentless plot—this is the tale of Atlantean magic we didn’t know we wanted." - Scott Reintgen

"Sharp dialogue, plus characters you want to follow around just to see what happens next . . . What’s not to love?" - Ferrett Steinmetz

"A fast, fun urban fantasy in a wonderfully original world, full of slam-bang magic and interesting characters." - Django Wexler
