Welcome to our Saturday Spotlight feature where we at the Uncharted Library will be hosting a new spotlight every Saturday where possible to showcase the incredible talent of self-published fantasy authors! If you’d like to take part, get in touch.
Please welcome Stephen Taylor with his newly released epic fantasy, Candle and Claw.
Giovel Ullin’s job is to stop witches from crafting experimental magic and destroying the world. It’s a job he never wanted. Every time he hunts a witch, he’s reminded of the ones who stole his wife away and sent her back distant, delusional, and dying. Even worse, the same magic that ruined her life is now part of his-a tool Giovel’s expected to master for the sake of his duties.
When a coterie of witches begins systematically removing Giovel’s companions, he has little choice but to fight back. But the more he learns about his own power, the more he sees himself in the very witches he hunts.
Candle and Claw is the first volume in The Witherclaw Trilogy. Packed with hard magic, nuanced characters, and epic conflicts, Candle and Claw will appeal to fans of Brent Weeks and Brandon Sanderson.
Candle and Claw was published on February 10th 2022 at 500 pages.
