When I saw the blurb for this book, I knew I had to put it on my TBR list. I’m honoured to be able to share the cover reveal for this exciting new book by author, Deborah Jay.
So, drumroll please . . .
Cool, isn’t it?!
Here’s the blurb – fantasy lovers take note:
Award winning novel, THE PRINCE’S MAN, has been described as ‘James Bond meets Lord of the Rings’ – a sweeping tale of spies and deadly politics, inter-species mistrust and magic phobia, with an underlying thread of romance.
Rustam Chalice, hedonist, dance tutor and spy, loves his life, never better than when he’s bedding a gorgeous woman.
So when the kingdom he serves is threatened from within, he leaps into action. Only trouble is, the spy master, Prince Hal, teams him up with an untouchable aristocratic assassin who despises him.
And to make matters worse, she’s the most beautiful woman in the Five Kingdoms.
Plunged into a desperate journey over the mountains, the mismatched pair struggle to survive deadly wildlife, the machinations of a spiteful god – and each other.
They must also keep alive a sickly elf they need as a political pawn. But when the elf reveals that Rustam has magic of his own, he is forced to question his identity, his sanity and worst, his loyalty to his prince.
For in Tyr-en, all magic users are put to death.
This sounds amazing, doesn’t it?! I have a feeling Deborah is going to be an author to watch. Let me share a bit about her . . .
Deborah Jay writes fast-paced fantasy adventures featuring quirky characters and multi-layered plots – just what she likes to read.
Living mostly on the UK South coast, she has already invested in her ultimate retirement plan – a farmhouse in the majestic, mystery-filled Scottish Highlands where she retreats to write when she can find time. Her taste for the good things in life is kept in check by the expense of keeping too many dressage horses, and her complete inability to cook.
THE PRINCE’S MAN, her debut novel, first in a trilogy and winner of a UK Arts Board award will be published on 29th July 2013. She also has non-fiction equestrian titles published under the name Debby Lush.
So put this date (29th July) in your diary, folks and be one of the first to get your hands on this debut novel.
