A deftly built world full of betrayal, war and courage awaits in the riveting alternate 19th century universe of THE INFERNAL BATTALION, where muskets and magic clash amongst men and demons. Perfect for fans of George R.R. Martin and Naomi Novik, THE INFERNAL BATTALION is a definite must-read for readers craving a well-crafted adventure full of the complex, gritty politics that govern man and creatures unknown.
As an ancient beast imprisoned beneath Elysium, the fortress-city, escapes, a queen and her closest soldier companions must grapple with the plague-like control it has unleashed upon their city. As mind after mind is absorbed by the beast, a betrayal amongst their city’s army is felt throughout their ranks as chaos grips the city. With Queen Raesinia risking becoming everything she fought against, her closest companions must take on their own old commanders and innermost demons in order to stop the beast from destroying everything in its path.
