Massive thank you to Fletcher for allowing FFA to reveal the cover for the omnibus edition of ‘The Obsidian Path’.
Fletcher is definitely one of THE most underrated fantasy authors out there and he needs to be on every radar, bookshelf, and e-Reader on the planet.
A broken man, Khraen awakens alone and lost. His stone heart has been shattered, littered across the world. With each piece, he regains some small shard of the man he once was. He follows the trail, fragment by fragment, remembering his terrible past.
There was a woman.
There was a sword.
There was an end to sorrow.
Khraen walks the obsidian path.
“Honestly, this is my favourite book. Best one I’ve read in my life, alongside (and on a par with) Prince of Thorns.” — booknest.eu
“Insanely brilliant. Fletcher did it again.” — novelnotions.net
“Black Stone Heart is Fletcher’s best novel to date, and that is really saying something coming from someone who can’t stop talking about Beyond Redemption.” — fanfiaddict.com
“Readers will probably wonder about Fletcher’s sanity before it’s all over.” — grimdarkmagazine.com
“This is a riveting start to an excellent saga. The author has surpassed himself again and we are all luckier for it.” — grimmedian.com
“This book is AMAZING and INTENSE and DARK and WEIRD and all those delightful things that Fletcher is known for.” — Sarah Chorn, author of Seraphina’s Lament
“This might be the best Fletcher book I’ve read to date. That’s not a light statement, considering his oeuvre: Beyond Redemption, Smoke and Stone, The Mirror’s Truth, and on, but I tore through this in less than four days, and it left me wanting more. More, more, more now.” — Clayton Snyder, author of The Obsidian Psalm
“Once again Michael Fletcher manages to spellbind you into this grimdark spiral of madness, and yet it feels so very fluent and logical it makes you take a double take at your own thoughts and emotions.” — fantasy-hive.co.uk
“A dark tale full of unconventional ideas with that special kind of madness that only Fletcher can provide. Bring on the sequel!” — fantasybookreview.co.uk
“Black Stone Heart is, above all, addictive and compulsively readable – it forced me to prolong my lunch as much as I dared because I couldn’t bear to stop reading it. If anything depended on me, I would forbid Fletcher to work on anything but The Obsidian Path series. I need the sequel.” — fantasybookcritic.blogspot.com
