Directly from Abraham on the Westeros Forums:
The dragons are gone, the powerful magics that broke the world diluted to little more than parlour tricks, but the kingdoms of men remain and the great game of thrones goes on. Lords deploy armies and merchant caravans as their weapons, manoeuvring for wealth and power. But a darker power is rising – an unlikely leader with an ancient ally threatens to unleash the madness that destroyed the world once already. Only one man knows the truth and, from the shadows, must champion humanity. The world’s fate stands on the edge of a Dagger, its future on the toss of a Coin.
There’s not a single novel (even from the ‘Big Three’ of Rothfuss, Lynch and Martin) that I’m anticipating more than this. It sounds more traditional than Abraham’s Long Price Quartet, but I feel that will only help in finding him the larger audience he deserves. We don’t know why Tor Books dropped him after The Price of Spring, but I still expect them to be rue the decision not to stick with Abraham once the wide Fantasy market catches on to him. Because, frankly, it’s only a matter of time.
Abraham admits that this is early catalog copy, so it will change (and become less generic) as the book moves closer to publication. He was also pretty clear that the ‘game of thrones‘ line wasn’t written by him, which is good to hear! Ain’t no good to rip off your friends.
Absolutely cannot wait for The Dragon’s Path. It’s the first volume in The Dagger and the Coin series.
