A daring new fantasy thriller of dark magic and revenge, with an anti-hero like no other

Stratus wakes alone, with no memory of his past. All he knows is his name and that he is not human. Possessing immense strength, powerful sorcery and an insatiable hunger, he sets out across a landscape torn apart by war, and blighted by dark magic. Hunted by relentless enemies, Stratus must learn who—and what—he truly is, or risk plunging the world into ruin.


"If Jack Reacher came to Westeros and started beating the hell out of everybody, you'd have Mark De Jager's Infernal . . . daring, dangerous, and full of surprises." —Sebastien de Castell

"Clever, funny and cheerfully brutal." —Snorri Kristjansson

"Infernal proves to be an incredibly strong start for this series. With drama, mystery, bloodshed, and grim humour abound, fans who favour the likes of The Elric Saga or The Silerian Trilogy will definitely have some fun with this one." —Starburst

"Infernal is magical, fast-paced and imaginative." —Culturefly

"Epic fantasy without any pretensions of changing literature or establishing itself in the canon, Infernal is only concerned with being entertaining. And it definitely succeeds." —SciFi Now
