Stephen Deas, born in 1968 in Southeast England, is an English fantasy author. He is most famous for his fantasy opus, the Memory of Flames sequence, set in a fantasy world inhabited by dragons.
The book is an entertaining mix of Pern and Westeros, with the knowing characterisation of Abercrombie and the endearment of Novik. It's a fun and entertaining debut that will appeal to fans of both classic and contemporary fantasy. Subterfuge and skulduggery from one of my favourite fantasy writers. Wit, humor, and a percolating sense of enchantment are signatures of a Stephen Deas novel, and this is Deas at the top of his game. Three unlikely characters land in the midst of political intrigue in this fun fantasy from Deas. - Publishers Weekly A cracking read - fun, frenetic and full of great characters...Roll on book 2! - Tom Lloyd, author of Stranger of Tempest A big, rich world, with a plot full of surprises and characters that will linger long after you finish. - Joshua Philip Johnson, author of The Forever Sea It will be loved by those who are looking for stories that exhibit all the darkness at the heart of Game of Thrones. Pratchett-like.
