A Taste Of Gold And Iron: Cover reveal and extract

Check out the cover and read the first chapter of upcoming fantasy romance A Taste Of Gold And Iron…

A sweeping fantasy romance set against the backdrop of an Ottoman Empire-inspired world, Alexandra Rowland’s A Taste Of Gold And Iron is out later on this year and we’re delighted to not only reveal its stunning cover (above) but we’re also publishing an exclusive extract from the novel!

One false coin could topple an empire in A Taste Of Gold And Iron. Kadou, the shy prince of Arasht, has no intention of wrestling for imperial control with his sister, the queen. Yet he remains at odds with one of the most powerful ambassadors at court – the father of the queen’s new child. Then a hunting party goes terribly awry, and Kadou finds himself under suspicion of attempted murder.

To prove his loyalty to his sister and salvage his reputation, Kadou takes responsibility for the investigation of a break-in at one of their guilds. He enlists the help of his newly appointed bodyguard, the coldly handsome Evemer, who seems to tolerate him at best. But what appears to be a straightforward crime spirals into a complex counterfeiting operation, with a powerful enemy at its heart. In Arasht, where princes can touch-taste precious metals with their fingers and myth runs side by side with history, counterfeiting is heresy. The conspiracy they discover could cripple the kingdom’s financial standing – and bring about its ruin…

A Taste Of Gold And Iron isn’t released until this September but we have the first chapter here exclusively at SciFiNow for you to read right now!
