Blackheart Knights releases May 27th 2021


HELLO, CHECK OUT THAT COVER. The incredible illustration is by artist Federico Musetti.


Extremely lucky to have three fabulous authors who are way more popular than me say nice things about Knights:


"King Arthur as you've never seen him before. Eve doesn't just capture lightning, but commands it, in a riveting tragedy of blood and desire. A masterwork of urban fantasy - and the coolest thing you'll read this year."

― Samantha Shannon, author of The Bone Season and The Priory of the Orange Tree


"The screaming neon of Bladerunner meets the medieval steel of Arthurian legend in a world that's dizzying in scope and imagination. The boldest, smartest, most adventurous fantasy I've read in ages - and it's really f**ing fun."

― Krystal Sutherland, author of Our Chemical Hearts


"Arthurian legend meets urban fantasy in a brilliant, bloody wild ride."

― Jay Kristoff, New York Times and Sunday Times bestselling author


And here's your full 'what the hell is it actually about':


Imagine Camelot but in Gotham: a city where knights are the celebrities of the day, riding on motorbikes instead of horses and competing in televised fights for fame and money.


Imagine a city where a young, magic-touched bastard astonishes everyone by becoming king - albeit with extreme reluctance - and a girl with a secret past trains to become a knight for the sole purpose of vengeance.


Imagine a city where magic is illegal but everywhere, in its underground bars, its back-alley soothsayers - and in the people who have to hide what they are for fear of being tattooed and persecuted.

Imagine a city where electricity is money, power the only game worth playing, and violence the most fervently worshipped religion.


Welcome to a dark, chaotic, alluring place with a tumultuous history, where dreams come true if you want them hard enough - and are prepared to do some very, very bad things to get them . . .
