SPEAK TO THE DEVIL
Genre: Fantasy, General Fantasy
Duncan doesn't disappoint with another extraordinary tale of magic, mayhem and family relationships. With great storytelling, stand-out worldbuilding, compelling characters and a quick-paced plot, this inventive fantasy will have you clamoring for book two.
Lancer Anton Magnus is summoned by Cardinal Zdenek from the bed of a baroness in the middle of the night. He's worried it's because of a jealous husband or accusations of heresy, but it's a spectacular display of horsemanship that brings him before the cardinal. Zdenek offers him an earldom if he will take command of a fortress. He thinks an invasion is imminent and that Anton possesses magical powers. Anton doesn't have magical powers. His brother convinces him to take the mission -- and the future is looking grim. (TOR, May, 304 pp., $27.99)
