Publisher's Summary

As an empire dies, three warriors will rise. They will have to ride the storm or drown in its blood.

"An exciting new author in fantasy." (Mark Lawrence, author of Red Sister

Seventeen years after rebels stormed the streets, factions divide Kisia. Only the firm hand of the god-emperor holds the empire together. But when an unexpected betrayal destroys a tense alliance with neighboring Chiltae, all that has been won comes crashing down. 

In Kisia, Princess Miko Ts'ai is a prisoner in her own castle. She dreams of claiming her empire, but the path to power could rip it, and her family, asunder. 

In Chiltae, assassin Cassandra Marius is plagued by the voices of the dead. Desperate, she accepts a contract that promises to reward her with a cure if she helps an empire fall. 

And on the border between nations, Captain Rah e'Torin and his warriors are exiles forced to fight in a foreign war or die. 

War built the Kisian Empire. War will tear it down. 

We Ride the Storm is the epic launch of a bold and brutal new fantasy series, perfect for listeners of Mark Lawrence, John Gwynne and Brian Staveley.

Critic Reviews

"Madson has built a living, breathing world of Empire and fury. We Ride The Storm grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go." (Peter McLean, author of Priest of Bones)

"Fans of George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series will appreciate the feudal political maneuvering, shifting alliances, and visceral descriptions of combat and its aftermath in this series starter." (Booklist)

"With prose that rises above most novels, Devin Madson paints evocative scenes to build an engaging story. Highly entertaining, We Ride the Storm is certainly worth your attention and Madson is an exciting new author in fantasy." (Mark Lawrence, author of Red Sister)

Recorded in a closet?

I honestly did not make it far in the book. The audio quality was abysmal.
