The Long Look

(The first book in the Laws of Power series)
A novel by


Things aren't always how they look.

Tymon is the most evil magician in the world. He makes bad things happen to good people for no reason, and everyone knows that.

Or do they?

Maybe they don't know everything.

Tymon has his own problems. He's really, really annoyed a vengeful goddess, scores of powerful people want him dead, and that isn't even the worst of it. There's also the small matter of a royal wedding which must not take place, and a mule-headed prince determined to be a hero.

At any cost.

Heroes are all well and good, but sometimes you don't need a hero. Sometimes what you really need is a first-class bastard.

You'll love The Long Look, because who can resist a misunderstood bad boy just doing his best?

Get it now.
