Many thanks to everyone who entered the Queen of Fire giveaway. Also thanks for the all the kind comments in the emails and apologies for not being able to respond to everyone individually. Without further ado, the randomly selected winners are:

1st place: Jared Pannell, winning a signed, lined and dated US hardcover.

2nd place: Charlie Hopkins, winning a signed, lined and dated UK hardcover.

Commiserations to everyone who didn’t win but if you want another chance at a signed US hardcover I’ll shortly be running another giveaway on Goodreads, so watch out for that.


Queen of Fire – UK Release Day

Queen of Fire is released today in the UK in hardback, ebook and audio formats. Where-to-buy links have been added to the books page. This edition should also now be available in Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Many thanks to everyone at Orbit UK for their hard work on this book, especially my editor James Long who first took a chance on this series back in 2012. And heartfelt thanks to all my readers for allowing me to finish this story – I really couldn’t have done it without you. It’s been a long and winding road, but all roads must end.

New Interview – SciFiNow

Thanks to SciFiNow Magazine for inviting me to be interviewed on their website. I talk Queen of Fire, inspirations, writing advice and remain annoyingly vague about future plans. Read it here: http://www.scifinow.co.uk/interviews/anthony-ryan-on-queen-of-fire-and-the-end-of-ravens-shadow/


The Lord Collector – Audiobook Now Available

My novella The Lord Collector is now available in audiobook on audible.com and audible.co.uk.  This is a Raven’s Shadow novella originally published in the Blackguards anthology from Ragnarok Publications. Here’s my intro to the story:

‘The following story takes place in the same world as my novel Blood Song, the first volume in the Raven’s Shadow trilogy. I wrote it because I wanted to more fully explore characters who appear in Blood Song and the sequels Tower Lord and Queen of Fire. Readers familiar with my work are sure to recognize a certain pale-eyed, raspy-voiced Sword Master of the Sixth Order, and those curious as to the origins of the Tower Lord of the Southern Shore will find answers here. The tale takes place at the midpoint of the timeline described in Blood Song, a time when King Janus, with typical ruthlessness, is in the process of further consolidating his grip on the Unified Realm.’

Thanks to everyone at Podium Publishing for making this happen.
