You mean in addition to the blurb?

Our protagonist, Teltö Phuul, is a low-level Necromancer, whose job is to make sure that the zombies ('liches') at the local library stack the shelves correctly. Necromancy is a universal ability in this world, and in Teltö's homeland is taught in schools like mathematics - those who pass the exam occupy the highest social niche, while everyone else makes do (or is converted into undead labour). Teltö is very much an anti-hero - his views and personality are shaped by his place within the system, though some of his character flaws are entirely his own.

Teltö gets dragged into some unsavoury political shenanigans involving both his homeland (the Viiminian Empire - a crumbling bureaucratic nightmare) and the neighbouring Northern Principality (a border-line theocratic military dictatorship, which regards Necromancy as pure evil). Teltö's people are still paying off war reparations from the last conflict some decades before, and there is still a lot of bitterness.

The book is really about Teltö's literal and metaphorical journey (how can he change? how far can he change?). That's about all I can say without getting spoilery. :)  

Okay, thanks.

Oddly, more than a lot of reviews, perhaps my favorite moment as an author so far has been William King (Gotrek and Felix) saying he enjoyed Cthulhu Armageddon in a Facebook post.

Should be available on US site for US customers.

 

For some reason, Kindle automatically starts the book at the 'beginning' of the story.  There's a small 'glossary' one page back detailing gender-neutral terms I've either borrowed or invented.  If anyone buys it, please leave a review. (Unless you don't like it in which case ... no need! :P)

 

It's also available for free on Kindle Unlimited.

My new science fiction assassin series is now available for Pre-Order.

AGENT G: INFILTRATOR

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XFJ5HF5/

“Black Technology has made murder a billion dollar industry.”

The International Refugee Society has twenty-six cybernetically enhanced “Letters,” and for the right price, they’ll eliminate anyone. They’ve given up their families and their memories for ten years of service with the promise of a life of luxury awaiting them. Agent G is one of these “Letters,” but clues to his past are starting to emerge while he’s on a dangerous mission to infiltrate the Society’s most dangerous competitor. In the midst of all the violence, subterfuge, and deceit, he’ll need to keep his wits about him and trust sparingly.

After all if an organization will kill for money, what would they do to keep the truth hidden?
