Angry Robot Books has announced that author Paul S. Kemp (Crosscurrent, Deceived, Riptide) will be writing a new book entitled The Hammer and the Blade – a Tale of Egil & Nix. The book will be published in July 2012 by Angry Robot Books (a part of Osprey Publishing).
The Hammer and the Blade will introduce you to Egil and Nix, a pair of down-at-heel treasure hunters and incorrigible rogues. Egil is a priest, happy to deliver moral correction with his pair of massive hammers. Nix is a sneak-thief; there’s no lock he cannot open, no serving girl he cannot charm. Between them, they always have one eye for a chance to make money – the other eye, of course, is on the door. Only this time, the treasure they’ve thieved is an important relic of a most sinister and ancient family, who will stop at nothing to get their bloody revenge.
And there’s already a sequel planned! (A Discourse of Steel) You can check out Angry Robot Books website for more information on the announcement. Personally I’m excited to see more Kemp books in the future. If this new series is on par with the Erevis Cale series, then readers will have plenty of good reading material coming there way.
