      Lords of Deception

      Emperors and kings thought it had been buried long ago: the Order of the Candlestone was defeated, the grim deeds of its assassins forgotten and its dangerous alchemy shunned. But Arasemis, an eccentric warrior-scholar, is determined to revive the Order and return the continent to its primitive origins, if he can control his apprentices.

      Arthan Valient is a young nobleman from a respected family who wrestles with providing honorable service to a weak king. Thrust into a powerful position before he is ready, Arthan must navigate the political intrigue of a court in slow collapse, while avoiding Arasemis’s new assassins.

      Arasemis, Arthan, and their companions learn that help can be found in the most unlikely of places, even as the shadow of war looms across the continent. But trust is always elusive.


      Reviews

      "One of the best fantasy debuts I've read in a while... Overall highly recommended and a top 5 novel of the year for me." — Liviu Suciul, former co-editor of Fantasy Book Critic

      “Fuchs’ epic fantasy is a marathon of political maneuvers packed with assassins, deadly concoctions, and saber-rattling nation states… Readers, even fans of Game of Thrones, might gape at the volume of characters and territories in rotation. The focus inevitably falls on a handful of players, and the narrative thrill comes from the carefully plotted metamorphosis… By the end of this series opener, the principal cast has undergone dramatic changes in anticipation of wider adventures. A...visceral epic fantasy with plenty of political intrigue.” — Kirkus Reviews

      “You can get bad books, average books, good books and then there are books you wish you could wipe from your memory so that you can relive the experience of reading it for the first time again. This is one of those books!...This series is my new obsession... Christopher C. Fuchs...write faster!” — Zoe Pollock, Book Blogger

      "This book (I had an ARC) was really well written - I enjoyed it a lot...The narration rotates through the characters with each chapter (a bit like the style of Game of Thrones) and cleverly reveals the plot as this characters experience it. The story is pacy and I found it hard to put down." — Jonty S., NetGalley 5-Star Review

      "I found all the characters to be intriguing and I loved that it jumped from one character to another." — Angelique G., NetGalley 5-Star Review

      "I really enjoyed the book and am looking forward to the sequel. Characters are well developed and plot moves quickly. The plot was unique." — Anthony P., NetGalley 5-Star Review
