Anthony Ryan To Publish 'The Pariah', First Book In The Covenant Of Steel Trilogy

In a surprising turn of events, author Anthony Ryan has announced a new trilogy called The Covenant Of Steel with the first book titled The Pariah. It will be published by Orbit (he is usually published by Ace in the US), which turned out to be a heartbreaking tragedy (as usual for Orbit) becasue there is no US hardcover edition so I will have to import from UK to get a hardcover. I wonder if Anderida Books will have a run of the signed special edition hardcover for this one...

A mysterious cover has been unveiled at the same time the book was announced. This beautiful cover is courtesy of artist Jaime Jones, who is not new to painting cover art for the author as he also did the cover for the UK edition of The Waking Fire, and cover designer Lauren Panepinto.

From the international best-selling author of the Raven's Shadow and Draconis Memoria series comes the spectacular first novel in an all-new epic fantasy trilogy.

Born into the troubled kingdom of Albermaine, Alwyn Scribe is raised as an outlaw. Quick of wit and deft with a blade, Alwyn is content with the freedom of the woods and the comradeship of his fellow thieves. But an act of betrayal sets him on a new path - one of blood and vengeance, which eventually leads him to a soldier's life in the king's army.

Fighting under the command of Lady Evadine Courlain, a noblewoman beset by visions of a demonic apocalypse, Alwyn must survive war and the deadly intrigues of the nobility if he hopes to claim his vengeance. But as dark forces, both human and arcane, gather to oppose Evadine's rise, Alwyn faces a choice: can he be a warrior, or will he always be an outlaw?

The Pariah by Anthony Ryan will be released on August 24, 2021.
