Description

From acclaimed historical novelist Conn Iggulden, Empire of Salt is an epic new fantasy series of spellbinding imagination.

Twelve families. One throne. Welcome to the Empire of Salt.

The city of Darien stands at the weary end of a golden age. Twelve families keep order with soldiers and artefacts, spies and memories, clinging to a peace that shifts and crumbles. The people of the city endure what they cannot change. Here, amongst old feuds, a plot is hatched to kill a king.

It will summon strangers to the city - Elias Post, a hunter; Tellius, an old swordsman banished from his home; Arthur, a boy who cannot speak; Daw Threefold, a chancer and gambler; Vic Deeds, who feels no guilt; and Nancy, a girl whose talent might be the undoing of them all. As the sun sets, their arrival inside the walls will spark a series of explosive events. Before the sun returns, six destinies will have been made - and lost - in Darien.

So good!

I have read most of Conn Iggulden's work and I liked him mixing it up with a fiction instead of a historical novel. This book is a ton of fun and I am already looking forward to the next books. The narrator was also exceptional and I overall highly recommend this book!

A perfect book for fans of Game of Thrones

A skillfully told tale of magic and intrigue. Darien is a corrupt city living under the iron grip of twelve wealthy houses. But when three strangers with unusual abilities find themselves caught up in a conspiracy to take control of the city, they're forced to choose whether to stand by the devil they know or risk one who might be much, much worse.

Darien is a terrific novel from an expert storyteller and the narration by Daniel Weyman is stellar. The combination of the two makes this one of my favourite audiobooks of the year.
