The Magistocrats

Available now via Amazon.

Intrigue. Magic. Violent struggles and an empire sleepwalking towards the brink of destruction.

This is a story of Mages at war. A tale of skulduggery, hubris and disaster.

Enter the world of Grand Catai, where the application of high magic has created an empire spanning from Beijing to the far Pleiades. The Imperial Fleets range the galaxy, a child-emperor sits the throne and traitors groan in the work camps.

For Novice Second Class Rudolf Valentine, it is all a goldfish bowl a rigged game serving only to frustrate his grand ambitions.

For Sister Anastasia, a Valkyrie of the Sisterhood Of Luna, Grand Catai is a dictatorship an abomination to be torn down in the name of freedom.

To Mage Zheng Wu, it is a mess of antagonisms in need of wisdom and knowledge a problem to be solved. A problem whose solution lies among the stars.

All of them are right, to a greater or lesser degree. And all of them are wrong in equal measure.

When war threatens and a dangerous individual sets his sights on the throne, all find themselves drawn into the struggle. And as the intrigues mount and the empire’s greatest Archmages vie for control, each must rise up and prove their mastery.

They are refined, elegant, and above all, murderous. They are The Magistocrats.

GOLGOTHA

Available via Amazon.

“Never to be outdone in the way of the Samurai; To be of good use to my master; To be filial to my parents; To manifest great compassion; To act for the sake of man.”

Traitor. Kinslayer. Ronin.

Okami Kensho, the last Samurai, travels the dying embers of the cosmos, desperately trying to escape the ghosts of his past.
But when an emergency forces the Ronin to seek refuge on a dark and twisted world, he finds that he is no longer able to flee the responsibilities of Bushido. As the tide of chaos rises everywhere and the godhead writhes in the clutches of tyranny, he must honour his vows, bring justice to the fallen world of the godscape and, finally, face his demons.

This is the tale of Golgotha hill. Of a crown refused and all the rotten fruits that grew from it.

This is the tale of the Ronin.
