The Shadow Throne

The epic follow-up to THE THOUSAND NAMES

The King of Vordan is dying, and his daughter, Raesinia, is destined to become the first Queen in centuries.
But politics knows no loyalties, especially for Duke Orlanko, Minister of Information and spymaster of the empire. The most feared man in the Vordan will bow his knee to no Queen, unless she is firmly under his influence.

Freshly returned from their recent victories in the colonies, Colonel Janus, Marcus and Winter must play a new and far deadlier game than the open warfare of the front, using all their talents, earthly or supernatural.

Praise for The Shadow Throne

“It is, in truth, a cracking read and I very much look forward to the next installment.”

Mike Brooks, author of Dark Run and Dark Sky

“The Shadow Throne is easily one of the most enjoyable books I’ve read in years.”

Publishers Weekly

“I was full of praise for The Thousand Names and am so once again for The Shadow Throne, obligatory fantasy right here. Managing to create such strong start and building upon it requires skill. I can only imagine what Django Wexler will show next. MUST READ”

Joshua S. Hill, fantasybookreview.co.uk

“The Coolest Fantasy Story You'll Read This Week”


“I can recommend it sincerely: The Shadow Throne is fun.”

Jasper, thebookplank

“I absolutely loved it. Wexler balances the actions of his very human characters with just the right amount of imaginative "magic" to keep me wanting more”

Taylor Anderson, National Bestselling Author of the Destroyerman Series

“Wexler has produced something unusual in the fantasy line, with a setting reminiscent of the early Victorian period, out on the bleeding edge of Empire, a world of dust and bayonets and muskets... and magic. The characters are fascinating and - all- of them have secrets ... I read it at a gulp and look forward to more”

S.M. Stirling, New York Times bestselling author of LORD OF MOUNTAINS

“Extremely strong debut, flintlock fantasy at its best ... there’s a new military fiction cowboy in town and his name is Django.”

Nick Sharps, SF Signal
