Absolutely delighted to reveal the cover of The Iscariot Sanction today. This is the second book in the Apollonian Casefiles, which began with The Lazarus Gate.
From the Titan Blog:
In an alternate reality, the world is in peril. The sky burns with a supernatural fire, demonic entities run amok in the streets, and in the north of England, sinister beings plot to claim a part of the Empire for their own. Young Apollo Lycea agent Lillian Hardwick, and her Majestic partner Sir Arthur Furnival, are sent to expose this plot. To complete their mission they must overcome foes both mundane and supernatural, uncover a Royal conspiracy, and unlock the secret of the Iscariot Sanction. And yet what they find in the industrial cities and windswept moors of the north is a danger unlike anything they have faced before; a threat that will leave them—and the Empire—changed forever.
As you may guess from that blurb, this is not a direct sequel to The Lazarus Gate (that is coming, believe me), but rather a prequel, which rounds off the stories of all our principal players. This is a tale of the Otherside, and it's the most action-packed and visceral story I've ever told - that red cover is no accident. There will be blood...
The Iscariot Sanction is expected to hit book stores this October, although you can pre-order now!
