Product description


Twelve Kings in Sharakhai is the gateway to what promises to be an intricate and exotic tale. The characters are well defined and have lives and histories that extend past the boundaries of the plot. The culture is well fleshed out and traditional gender roles are exploded. Çeda and Emre share a relationship seldom explored in fantasy, one that will be tried to the utmost as similar ideals provoke them to explore different paths. I expect that this universe will continue to expand in Beaulieu's skillful prose. Wise readers will hop on this train now, as the journey promises to be breathtaking (Robin Hobb author of The Assassin’s Apprentice)

The protagonist, pit-fighter Çeda, is driven but not cold, and strong but not shallow. And the initial few scenes of violence and sex, while very engaging, soon give way to a much richer plot. Beaulieu is excellent at keeping a tight rein on the moment-to-moment action and building up the tension and layers of mysteries (SciFiNow)

I am impressed... An exceedingly inventive story in a lushly realized dark setting that is not your uncle's Medieval Europe. I'll be looking forward to the next installment (Glen Cook author of The Black Company)

Exotic, sumptuous and incredibly entertaining, Beaulieu has created memorable characters in a richly imagined world (Michael J. Sullivan author of The Riyria Chronicles)

Beaulieu's fantasy worlds are well-imagined and richly drawn...the kind you want to keep visiting (Kirkus Speculative Reading List for September 2015)

Twelve Kings is the best new Epic Fantasy I've read in years (Mark Yon SFFWorld)

A memorable heroine, a poetically told tale of revenge, and superb world-building make Twelve Kings in Sharakhai a splendid read (John Marco author of The Jackal of Nar and The Eyes of God)

Bradley Beaulieu has crafted a rich, fascinating world, filled it with compelling characters, and blended them into an epic tale that grabbed my attention on the first page and refused to let go. I look forward to more stories of Sharakhai (David B. Coe/D.B. Jackson author of Rules of Ascension and Thieftaker)

It's hard to take a desert novel and not draw comparisons to Dune, but Beaulieu manages to create a rich, totally individual world, teeming with wonders and wondrous characters. Çeda and Emre and their relationship rings true and draws the reader on through magic, vengeance, and above all, excitement. A hellacious start to what looks like the next towering epic fantasy (John Hornor Jacobs author of The Incorruptibles)

Crammed with intrigue, suspense, and stunning action sequences. Engaging characters and masterful world-building (Howard Andrew Jones author of The Desert of Souls)

Book Description
