Cover & Synopsis: THE FREE by Brian Ruckley

Brian Ruckley just revealed the cover for his upcoming novel The Free. A band of mercenaries with martial and magical skills? This…this is fantasy that appeals to me.

Here’s what it’s about.


Led by Yulan, their charismatic captain, the Free have spent years selling their martial and magical skills to the highest bidder — winning countless victories that have shaken the foundations of the world. Now they finally plan to lay down their swords.

Yet when Yulan is offered a final contract, he cannot refuse — for the mission offers him the chance to erase the memories of the Free’s darkest hour, which have haunted him for years.

As the Free embark on their last mission, a potent mix of loyalty and vengeance is building to a storm. Freedom, it seems, carries a deadly price.

    Brian has put enough high quality work out that if it has his name on it I’m going to enjoy it. This one sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun.
