Stranger of Tempest

(2016)
(The first book in the God Fragments series)
A novel by

 
 
Lynx is a mercenary with a sense of honour; a dying breed in the Riven Kingdom. Failed by the nation he served and weary of the skirmishes that plague the continent's principalities, he walks the land in search of purpose. He wants for little so bodyguard work keeps his belly full and his mage-gun loaded. It might never bring a man fame or wealth, but he's not forced to rely on others or kill without cause.

Little could compel Lynx to join a mercenary company, but he won't turn his back on a kidnapped girl. At least the job seems simple enough; the mercenaries less stupid and vicious than most he's met over the years.

So long as there are no surprises or hidden agendas along the way, it should work out fine.

Genre: Fantasy

Praise for this book

". . . an outstanding and refreshingly original work of fantasy fiction; and even in a genre crowded with incredible talent and content, it will undoubtedly stand out and, I hope, propel Tom centre-stage where he clearly now belongs." - James Barclay

"A fun and fast paced romp in which a mercenary company's latest job goes horrendously wrong and they have to evade pursuit. A great cast and some very good action set pieces." - Aliette de Bodard

"Grips you from the beginning and doesn't let go until the end. This is Tom Lloyd at his best." - Edward Cox

"Deliciously dark and dangerous - Stranger of Tempest grabs you by the throat on the first page and only squeezes tighter from there on in." - Ben Galley

". . . tightly written heroic fantasy with deftly drawn characters in an intriguing, action-filled world." - Adrian Tchaikovsky
