It’s a busy month in Remic Land #2. Over at Angry Robot Books you can read a free extract of my recently released novel, Twilight of the Dragons, follow-up to the very well received The Dragon Engine published last year.
“During a recent dwarf civil-war deep under the Karamakkos Mountains, the magick-enslaved dragonlords have broken free from centuries of imprisonment and slaughtered tens of thousands throughout the Five Havens before exploding from the mountain and heading in fire and vengeance for the lands of Vagandrak.
Two once-noble war heroes of Vagandrak – Dakeroth and his wife Jonti Tal, an archer and scholar, the Axeman, the White Witch and a Kaalesh combat expert find themselves in a unique position: for they have discovered the ancient dragon city of Wyrmblood, and a thousand unhatched dragon eggs.
Dakeroth and his companions must work with their enemies, Skalg and the Church of Hate, in order to bring down the dragonlords and save the world of men and dwarves. But there is no bartering with these ancient dragons; for they seek to hatch their eggs and rebuild the cruel Wyrmblood Empire of legend.
File Under: Fantasy [ Hatchlings and Hatchets | Chop-chop! | Give Love a Chance | Dragons vs Wolves ]”

Want to see the promo film for The Dragon Engine by Andy Remic, published by Angry Robot 1st September 2015??
Well here you go then—-
Do you love an ass-kicking dragon that could beat Smaug in a fight any day? How about an ass-kicking dragon that could beat Smaug AND is made from metal? Well, in that case you’re going to love the new cover for Andy Remic‘s forthcoming novel, The Dragon Engine, which features the most excellent metal bodied, red eyed, fiery mouthed giant lizard around. The cover was designed by the brilliant Lee Gibbons. You can see more of Lee’s work over at his blog.
Here’s what you can expect from the book, which is released on 1 Sept (US/Can) 3 Sept (UK/R.o.W).
Five noble war heroes of Vagandrak get drunk one night and sign a contract – to journey to the Karamakkos in search of the Five Havens where, it is written, there lies untold, abandoned wealth and, more importantly, the three Dragon Heads, legendary jewels claimed to give unspeakable power and everlasting life to those who wield them.
But the Dragon Heads aren’t what the adventurers think they are, and the world has not encountered their like in generations!

Finally, after all these long cold winter months, my next two novels for Angry Robot Books have been announced! The Dragon Engine (due September 2015) and Twilight of the Dragons (TBC) are in production, and should be sedated and allowed from their hefty padlocked cages real soon…
Remic said: “I am once again thrilled to be working with Angry Robot on my next two hardcore violent fantasy novels, The Dragon Engine and Twilight of the Dragons. Both novels are set in the same world as The Iron Wolves and The White Towers, and feature a group of honourable heroes who go in search of wealth and immortality… but find a whole barrel-load of trouble instead. These books will hit new levels in fantasy violence and anti-heroic depravity… Game of Thrones? Pffft. Game of Marshmallows compared to what I’m writing now!!”
