WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"Bond offers something fresh, combining Welsh mythology with the nation’s mining history to create a rousing epic about political struggle, injustice, and rebellion, with a distinctly Welsh bedrock."

The Vagabond King: Out now

Part One in The Vagabond King Trilogy


In a land where immortality can be bought, cruelty thrives...

Exiled and alone, Threon is torn from a life in the palace to scrape a living on the streets of a foreign land. Once a prince whose every whim was obliged, now this vagabond must adapt to survive. 

Throwing his lot in with a witch, a rebel soldier and a woman touched by a god, he seeks retribution for the wrongs committed against his family. Slavery and famine are rampant, and the struggle to avenge his kin soon becomes a battle to restore justice across the Empire. Together Threon and his new companions must rekindle old allegiances, face an immortal army and learn to trust one another.

But when the gods begin to interfere with their plans, is it a curse or a blessing?

'A classic fantasy adventure of heroes, villains, clashing empires and meddlesome gods. This is a story that grips from the outset and doesn't let the reader go.' David Towsey

'...Bond has achieved that most difficult balance ... of presenting her readers with a rousing epic and a cast of characters who we see, know, and care about from the first page.' Rebecca F John

'Fantasy fans will love this, but it’s also a really satisfying read for those that just enjoy the genre here and there, as they can get a hit of all the good stuff in one book. The Vagabond King manages to pack in bloodthirsty battles, magic, flying, a competition, immortality, shapeshifting, kings and queens, gods, and more!' Sarah C, The Nerd Daily
