“With tense political drama and rip-roaring action in a fresh and believable Asian-inspired setting, Gates of Stone reads like a collaboration between Joe Abercrombie and James Clavell. Add ancient feuding sorcerers and a queen who would eat Cersei Lannister for breakfast, and you have the makings of an excellent fantasy debut. Angus Macallan is a compelling new voice in epic fantasy.”

—Peter McLean, author of Priest of Bones

“I meant to give Gates of Stone a quick look before I started reading it–and couldn’t put it down. Angus Macallan is a brilliant storyteller!”

—Taylor Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of the Destroyermen series

“Starting with sex and murder, Gates of Stone fires off like a cannon into a rollercoaster actionfest that keeps the pages turning well into the night long after the reader should go to bed.”

—New York Journal of Books

“A solid fantasy debut with a strong yet brutal princess who recalls George R.R. Martin’s Cersei Lannister.”
