A while ago on my social channels I hinted at some exciting news, and I can finally talk about it: The Last Vigilant, the first in a new fantasy trilogy, has been picked up by Orbit Books! Huge thanks to my agent, Jennie Goloboy, and Orbit editor Bradley Englert (clearly a man of impeccable taste).

The screenshot below is from the US trade press (hence the August date) – Orbit US picked the book up first, but it should be released simultaneously via Orbit UK. The actual publication date is more likely to be early 2025, but more on that down the line.

This book has been a long time in the making (regular readers may recall me mentioning it ages ago), and I’m thrilled to bits that it’s gone to such a good home at Orbit. Gritty fantasy with a perplexing mystery at its heart, and two characters I love to write – I can’t wait for you to read it.
