BOOK REVIEW | Seven Deaths of an Empire by G. R. Mathews
Seven Deaths of an Empire
G. R. Mathews
Good Whatever it is, wherever you are. Today on the blog I will be reviewing SEVEN DEATHS OF AN EMPIRE by G. R. Mathews, which is released later this month by Rebellion Publishing.
I would like to thank Rebellion & Netgalley for the chance to read this book. This is my first introduction to the writing of G. R. Mathews.
So for those of you that don't know what the book is about, here is the book blurb that will give just that teensy hint about the story.
The Emperor is dead. Long live the Empire.
Seven lives and seven deaths to seal the fate of an Empire...
General Bordan has a lifetime of duty and sacrifice behind him in the
service of the Empire. But with rebellion brewing in the countryside,
and assassins, thieves and politicians vying for power in the city, it
is all Bordan can do to protect the heir to the throne.
Apprentice Magician Kyron is assigned to the late Emperor’s honour guard escorting his body on the long road back to the capital. Mistrusted and feared by his own people, even a magician’s power may fail when enemies emerge from the forests, for whoever is in control of the Emperor’s body, controls the succession.
Seven lives and seven deaths to seal the fate of the Empire.
