Deed of Empire

Crossroad Press, 2023

Deed of Empire is the first book of the big, sweeping, epic fantasy I’ve wanted to write since I read Lord of the Rings when I was nine years old. Of course, it’s me writing it, so it’s gritty and dark and populated with a great number of unpleasant people, but it’s still epic!

“There is no one on earth who writes the kind of dirtbags, scoundrels, cutthroats and rotters quite like Adam Stemple, always with equal portions of compassion and exasperation, with the occasional well-deserved scorn. This book is a complex, knotty, and cliff-hanging yarn. I enjoyed it immensely.”
