"Tell me who you ride beside, and I'll tell you who you are."
Once dubbed “The Deadliest Man Alive,” Jarrod Torrealday is now Lord Protector of Falconsrealm and a knight officer in the Order of the Stallion. He awakens one glorious fall morning to find his castle under siege and his alliances shattered as a new threat rises in the west: a revolution driven by a sorceress trained to kill and led by an unstoppable swordsman from the world he left behind. Worse, yet; the weapons Jarrod brought with him from Earth are now rocking the country on its heels and threatening everything he came to save.
At a candlelit crossroads of dark sorcery and espionage, Jarrod must choose whether to embrace forbidden ancient magic for the good of the realm, or gamble the future of the kingdom in a showdown of profane wizardry against modern steel.
THE NEW MAGIC is a white-knuckle fantasy thriller from bestselling author Joseph Malik, and the sequel to the critically acclaimed fantasy technothriller DRAGON’S TRAIL.
Joseph Malik will be signing at the SFWA table at 2:00 pm on Saturday, August 18.
