If you're missing Game of Thrones, discover your new favourite fantasy series in The Empire of Salt . . .

The city of Darien lies at the heart of a dying empire.

Twelve families race for a throne soon to be made vacant - by murder or civil war. Into this fevered, hungry city come six strangers:

An orphan and an old swordsman.

A hunter and a pitiless killer.

A young thief and a cynical chancer.

As the sun sinks the city will know no slumber. For long dormant passions have awoken. Fortunes will be won and lost. Lives will be staked and claimed.

And a story long waiting to be told will catch fire in the telling . . .

Darien is the first book in the Empire of Salt, THE epic fantasy series of spellbinding imagination.
