Publisher's Summary

Cold Cobalt, the Banshee with a Blade, First Among Villains... When there were no more titles to win and no more worlds to conquer, the warrior queen Zosia faked her demise and gave up her legend to history. But when violence finds its way to her door years later, she must round up her adventuring companions - each surprised to see her alive - and set out for revenge.
Time has not been kind to her old comrades, and some have only their own goals in mind. Not only that but there's a young, beautiful, and skilled general out there, gathering soldiers to her banner for a war against the deadliest of enemies. The girl is using a legend she did not earn and calling herself by a name that was never hers - that of Zosia herself.


What the Critics Say

"A Crown for Cold Silver’s world is a joy to fall into...gripping, and will suit any quest-lover looking for a new addiction." (SciFi Now)
"Alternately irreverent and brutal, with a cast of wonderfully scarred and nasty people. Any fans of Steven Erikson, Mark Lawrence, or Joe Abercrombie will love A Crown for Cold Silver; I've just finished it, and I'm already eager for more." (Django Wexler)
"A sprawling world that grows larger and deeper with every page." (David Dalglish)

Excellent Abercrombie-like Series

I was looking for something along the lines Joe Abercrombie's stuff or Scott Lynch's Gentlemen Bastard series & took a gamble on this. Its outstanding, at least on a par with Abercrombie's books.

Similar anti-hero / flawed leads style, but in a refreshing original setting. Definitely adult orientated too. I hate starting a fantasy series & discovering its really a young adult series in disguise.

I've give the narration 6 stars if I could. And great to see the same narrator carried over to the sequel. Which is equally excellent.
