Product Details


“Daley’s hero, Shade Nox, is complicated, sometimes likeable and always ready to stand her ground. This debut novel is packed with fresh-idea fantasy, courage, betrayal, sharp blades, and blood magic. A really fun read.”
– RWW Greene, author of Twenty-Five to Life

“Electric character relationships and masterful worldbuilding—encompassing a spectacular magic system, mystical urban legend, and profound mystery—are sure to impress. Those looking for fantasy with a dystopian flair should snap this up.”
– Publisher’s Weekly

“Sarah J Daley’s deftly-crafted debut, Obsidian, introduces us to the island nation of Malavita, protected by the magically-erected “Veils”, separating its population from the demonic blight of the barren wastes. Malavita is ruled from afar by an Empire keen to exploit its rich natural resources, and by the corrupt Brotherhood of blood magicians. Into this complex political landscape the Empire sends Captain Raiden Mad, to explore the possibility of erecting a new Veil with the help of a local prince and an outlaw witch. Daley weaves a powerful tale of friendship, power and sacrifice, with a rich cast of characters led by loyalty and ambition. A sure crowd-pleaser.”
– Gabriela Houston, author of The Second Bell and The Wind Child

“Full of fun and fresh twists on the usual fantasy fare, with compelling heroes, an engaging plot, sizzling tension, and smart dialogue, Obsidian is a joy.“
– Dan Hanks, author of Swashbucklers

“An absolute gem! Flawlessly delivered! Enchanted tattoos, greedy wizard factions, corrupt religious zealots, hidden demons, and blood magic, Daley’s debut fantasy makes you an offer you can’t refuse!”
Patricia A. Jackson author of Forging a Nightmare
