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 ]”

The White Towers Review – The Eloquent Page
Er, Paul Holmes really liked the book. Which is a great thing! I am very honoured. The problem is…. Book 3 might be *a little while*…..
“Book two of The Rage of Kings series ends on a suitably shocking note, an impressive feat in itself considering there have been pages and pages of chaos and bloodshed already. I now find myself in the midst of a quandary. I need to know what happens next, immediately if not sooner. Like a warrior addicted to the honey leaf, I’m already craving my next Iron Wolves fix. Damn you Remic! Damn you and your sneakily evil, blackest of black hearts, with all your insanely readable stories and your utterly nutty characters.”
I love this….
“When it comes to all this adult content I count myself a fan of Remic’s raw, often visceral, style. I think it takes genuine skill to know when to go all out and when a moment is best left to a reader’s own imagination. I’ve read more than a few examples from other authors attempting to deliver fictional shocks. More often than not they tend to get this delicate balance wrong. Andy Remic however always manages to tread this fine line with the masterful skill I’ve come to expect.”
“Now I’d imagine some of you will be asking the questions “How do I know if Mr Remic is the right author for me? Should I be reading The White Towers?” Fear not… Things regularly get extremely violent – blood, guts, and gore abound. Seriously, try and imagine the most graphic scene you have ever read. Got it? Good. Multiply that by about a factor of 100 and then add more axes….”
Heh. That’s brilliant. Both Kell and Narnok would be proud!!
And so, with an impending new book out, The White Towers, published by Angry Robot Books on 2nd June 2014, I decided to embark on the dark path of the (shhhh) Video Blogger, or Vblogger (Vlogger? Vogger? Bogger? What the Hell!). And thus what you see before you are some of my ramblings. If you really have NOTHING better to do, then click….. PLAY. (***See below).
*** On a serious note, in this vlog I read the dedication to The White Towers – dedicated to Dorothy Lumley of the Dorian Literary Agency. May she sincerely Rest In Peace. Good night Dot. xxx

Out 2nd January 2014.
Hey, check out Angry Robot’s January Book Birthdays…..
Hah!! After months of slog (and trust me, this was a really hard book to write), I can now announce The White Towers has been written and edited, and has gone off to the Red Pen of Hell that is Lee Harris at Angry Robot Books. I look forward to his mad scribblings with a FULL bottle of whiskey [#joke]. It’s gonna be a rollercoaster ride for those who liked The Iron Wolves…. I can promise you that.!!
