The Dragon's Path by Daniel Abraham

Last week, I broke the seal by releasing the first look at Daniel Abraham’s The Dragon’s Path, the first volume of his much-anticipated new series, The Dagger and the Coin. You can read the prologue here. To celebrate the launch of his new website, Abraham has posted the first chapter of the novel, giving readers their first look at Captain Marcus Wester, one of the three main characters from the novel.

Marcus rubbed his chin with a callused palm.


“Sir?” rumbled the Tralgu looming at his side.

“The day you throw me in a ditch and take command of the company?”

“Yes, sir.”

“It wouldn’t be today, would it?”

The Tralgu crossed his thick arms and flicked a jingling ear.

“No, sir,” he said at last. “Not today.”


If you’re an Abraham fan, you’re already dying to get your hands on the book. If you’re not, I’ve got a few reasons why I think you should be excited for The Dragon’s Path. When you’ve read the prologue, you can head to Abraham’s website to read chapter one of The Dragon’s Path. I have a feeling this isn’t the last excerpt we’ll see before the novel’s release in April.

    The first chapter made me want to turn to the second immediately.

    Yeah, I’m onboard for this one, no doubt.
