Discover your new favourite fantasy series the epic and spellbinding first instalment in Empire of Salt
'One of the best fantasy novels I've read' 5***** READER REVIEW
The city of Darien lies at the heart of a dying empire.
Twelve families race for a throne soon to be made vacant - by murder or civil war. Into this fevered, hungry city come six strangers:
An orphan and an old swordsman.
A hunter and a pitiless killer.
A young thief and a cynical chancer.
As the sun sinks the city will know no slumber. For long dormant passions have awoken. Fortunes will be won and lost. Lives will be staked and claimed.
And a story long waiting to be told will catch fire in the telling . . .

Gives fantasy a bad name.
How thoroughly disappointing! Having just read "Dunstan" with enormous pleasure, this was difficult. How on earth does Darien qualify as a city of salt? Turning Fagin into some sort of superhero?? Even Lionel Bart did n't go that far
I see from the epilogue?? That the author admires, amongst others, Steven King! Perhaps he should read some of them again and maybe discover how to write fantasy. There is nothing unbelievable in "Christine" for instance, the strange happenings all occur in the imaginations of the characters.
Stick with historical fiction Con, you are very good at that.
