Fade to Black Cover

Orbit  said:

“We jumped at the chance to publish Fade to Black – because the world that Francis has created just blew us away. It’s both awe-inspiring and vertigo-inducing, and Rojan’s tale makes the story just un-damn-put-downable. Think of the murky atmosphere of Sin City, filled with the action and pace of Brent Weeks or Scott Lynch.”

You can read more about the book and its noirish world of Mahala here. And if you like what you see, it’s available for pre-order on amazon now.
