Happy Release Day, David Tallerman – PRINCE THIEF

Tallerman-ED3-PrinceThief-BlogToday, Angry Robot Books publishes PRINCE THIEF, the final book in David Tallerman‘s Easie Damasco trilogy. The series has been well-received, with Adrian Tchaikovsky describing it as ‘A fast-paced, witty and original fantasy, reminiscent of Scott Lynch and Fritz Leiber.’

Here is the synopsis…

Altapasaeda, capital of the Castoval, is under siege by its own King.

Far to the north, rebels have set a bastard prince up as a figurehead.

Yet again, Easie Damasco finds himself roped into a desperate scheme to preserve the Castoval, And kidnapping the Prince seemed like such a good idea at the time…

The Easie Damasco Series: GIANT THIEF, CROWN THIEF, and PRINCE THIEF. Here’s what critics have been saying…

‘Breathless pace… Damasco resembles a landlocked version of Jack Sparrow… The atypical backdrop, self-aware style and downplaying of magics bring to mind the contemporary fantasies of Scott Lynch and Joe Abercrombie.’  ––  SFX Magazine

‘David Tallerman’s first novel is a gripping yarn, one that is difficult to put down once started, and this reviewer is eagerly awaiting the next tale of Easie Damasco.’  —  Starburst Magazine on GIANT THIEF

‘Tallerman’s charming, devil-may-care hero has plenty of swashbuckling roguishness to carry him through the planned sequels.’  ––  Publishers Weekly

‘[Easie] Damasco is the kind of vivacious, irreverent character who will steal your affections, and any book with him in it is too short.’  ––  WarpCoreSF

[Translation Rights for the trilogy, excluding Germany, are available – please contact us for details.]

Cover Reveal: David Tallerman’s PRINCE THIEF

The third installment in David Tallerman‘s Easie Damasco fantasy series now has a cover! Unveiled yesterday in a blogosphere-wide campaign, here it is…


Also, the synopsis…

Altapasaeda, capital of the Castoval, is about to be besieged by its own king – and where else would luckless, somewhat reformed thief Easie Damasco be but trapped within the city’s walls? Faced with a war they can’t win and a populace too busy fighting amongst itself to even try, the Castovalian defenders are left with one desperate option. Far in the northern lands of Shoan, rebels have set up the young prince Malekrin as a figurehead in their own quest to throw off the king’s tyrannical rule. One way or another, the prince must be persuaded to join forces.

Once again, all hope lies with Damasco and his sticky-fingered approach to problem solving, along with his long suffering partner, the gentle giant Saltlick. But this time it’s a human being that needs stealing, with his own desires and opinions, and events only grow more complicated as Damasco realises that he and the rebellious young prince have more in common that either would admit.

PRINCE THIEF is due to be published in September 2013 by Angry Robot Books. It was proceeded by GIANT THIEF and CROWN THIEF.
