‘Praise be to Our Lady of Eternal Sorrows, and blessed be the Ascended Martyr.’ Those were the words on lips of the faithful: Blessed be the Ascended Martyr, and woe betide you if you thought otherwise. The word Unbeliever had become a death sentence on the streets in those days.

Gangster, soldier, priest. Governor, knight, and above all, Queen’s Man.

Once, Tomas Piety looked after his men, body and soul, as best he could. Then those who ran his country decided his dark talents would better serve in the corridors of power.

Crushed by the power of the Queen’s Men and with the Skanian menace rising once more on the streets of Ellinburg, Tomas Piety is forced to turn to old friends, old debts and untrustworthy alliances.

Meanwhile in the capital city of Dannsburg, Dieter Vogel is beginning to wonder if the horror he has unleashed in the Martyr’s Disciples might be getting out of control.

With revolution brewing and tragedy and terrorism running rife in the cities, Piety and Vogel must each weigh the cost of a crown.

FANTASY BOOK CRITIC oN WAR FOR THE ROSE THRONE
If you want a gripping, well written and brilliant fantasy series, you got it.
ANNA RELLIX, @annarella, on WAR FOR THE ROSE THRONE
I can't remember the last time I read such a consistently good series as The War for the Throne. Characterisation in these books is phenomenal. Each is flawed, many are brutal, but you can't help but feel an affinity for them. McLean's prose keeps you reading, as you hang out for the next revelation and revel in each glorious set-piece

TRACK OF WORDS on WAR FOR THE ROSE THRONE
A page-turner, a gripping story
@ANNARELLA on PRIEST OF CROWNS
An absolute humdinger of a series. Tomas Piety is probably one of my favourite modern fantasy creations. He is such a compelling, flawed but noble character. The story and the culmination of the saga are deeply satisfying
GEEK DAD on PRIEST OF CROWNS
Priest of Crowns is an absolute page-turner, and through the last 80%, I literally sat on the edge of my seat. Peter McLean brings the War for the Rose Throne series to a gut-punching end, one that will be remembered for a long time coming. One of the best books of 2022 for sure. Praise be to Our Lady
QUEEN'S BOOK ASYLUM on PRIEST OF CROWNS
