THE CHAIN OF EYES - Tainted Cabal book 2 - news

It seems I was too hasty when, on the spur of the moment, I decided to set up a pre-order for THE CHAIN OF EYES, The Tainted Cabal book 2 — sequel to Revenant Winds.

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 situation where I live has escalated. Schools have been closed for two months, and it’s likely they’re remain closed until November/December. As a result I have two young girls who are now at home 24/7 and need to be home schooled, kept amused, exercised, and consoled.

After much consideration, I’ve decided to cancel the pre-order for THE CHAIN OF EYES. The book won’t be ready by December, and it’s too hard to predict when it will be ready, which I’d need to do to implement a delay rather than a cancellation.

This means that Amazon will penalise my account, and I’ll be unable to set up pre-orders for 12 months. So the next new release or two will go straight to released status. When I have updates I’ll post here and on social media.

I hope everyone’s staying safe.



THE CHAIN OF EYES - The Tainted Cabal book 2

On the spur of the moment I decided to set up a pre-order for THE CHAIN OF EYES, The Tainted Cabal book 2 — sequel to Revenant Winds!

With everything going on over the last few years progress on this novel stalled (I unexpectedly had to deliver seven books… yes seven, when 47North and Audible jumped at both The Infernal Guardian and The Necromancer’s Key series). But with five of those books complete and the sixth almost done, I now have time to work on other projects!

The first draft of THE CHAIN OF EYES is at around 25%, and I figure having a pre-order up will be great motivation to finish it quickly and get it ready for release. I set the release date for December this year, but I can always bring it forward once the manuscript is in a publishable state.

Anyhow, I just thought I’d let everyone know!

The cover is a temporary one, and the blurb isn’t finalised, but it’s better than having nothing out there and no word on when the sequel to Revenant Winds will be ready.

Here’s the Amazon US link: The Chain of Eyes

And the novel should show up on Goodreads soon.

A Crucible of Souls included in's top 100 fantasy books of our century!

I am somewhat stunned… has released their top 100 fantasy books of this century and my very own A CRUCIBLE OF SOULS was included! The crew over at are very active in the fantasy community, including being judges in and administrating Mark Lawrence’s SPFBO every year, so it’s a huge honour to be included in their list.

But is the only way from here down?! Read the books I wrote after A CRUCIBLE OF SOULS to find out ;)

There are many great authors and book included in the list, so check it out here: FANTASY LIST: TOP 100 FANTASY BOOKS OF OUR CENTURY
