'Highly recommended' John Gwynne 'Madson is an exciting new author in fantasy' Mark Lawrence 'A complex tale of war, politics and lust for power' Guardian AS AN EMPIRE DIES, THREE WARRIORS WILL RISE. THEY MUST RIDE THE STORM OR DROWN IN ITS BLOOD.

The kingdom of Kisia is divided, held together only by the will of the god-emperor. When an act of betrayal shatters an alliance with the neighbouring land of Chiltae, all that has been won comes crashing down.

Now, as the fires of war spread, a warrior, an assassin and a princess must chase their ambitions, no matter the cost.

War built the Kisian Empire. And now war will tear it down.

Devin Madson is an Aurealis Award-winning fantasy author from Australia. After some sucky teenage years, she gave up reality and is now a dual-wielding rogue who works through every tiny side-quest and always ends up too overpowered for the final boss. Anything but zen, Devin subsists on tea and chocolate and so much fried zucchini she ought to have turned into one by now. Her fantasy novels come in all shades of grey and are populated with characters of questionable morals and a liking for witty banter. Follow her on Twitter at @DevinMadson.

Reviews for We Ride the Storm (#1 Reborn Empire)

Intricate, compelling and vividly imagined, this is the first in a new series that I am hugely excited about. Visceral battles, complex politics and fascinating worldbuilding bring Devin's words to life -- Anna Stephens, author of GODBLIND I loved this book! A lot -- BOOKNEST Buckle your seatbelts and prepare for a hell of a ride -- FANTASY BOOK CRITIC I loved this book so much it's almost ridiculous . . . We Ride the Storm is dark fantasy done right. There's a lot going on and it never stops. It's also beautiful and deep, with characters that jump off the page. This book really surprised me. I expected to like it. I didn't expect to love it -- BOOKWORM BLUES Breathtakingly triumphant . . . it has become one of my favourite books of all time . . . a gripping, evocative hurricane of emotions that constantly took my breath away -- NOVEL NOTIONS A visceral, intriguing, intense and emotionally charged ride. I cannot wait to see where the next book takes us and eagerly await its arrival. I'd strongly recommend this bloody and bold tale to fans of Mark Lawrence [and] George R. R. Martin -- GRIMDARK MAGAZINE I loved this book . . . It is-hands down-one of the best self-published books I've ever read -- FANTASY INN Madson has crafted a complex and immersive story that catapults the reader through a gripping series of adventures and doesn't let go until the final electrifying pages -- FANTASY BOOK REVIEW
