#NewRelease: The First Vagabond, by @thesmboyce

Grimoire Saga fans, fantasy fans, and fans of incredible story telling…may I have your attention?

Today, S.M. Boyce has released the next book in her Ourean Chronicles series. If you didn’t know, this is a spin-off of the Grimoire Saga books, focusing on some key characters backstory. The first one, released last year, was The Misanthrope. That told the story of Stone. Today’s release is the first of two books telling the story of the first Vagabond. Originally planned as one book, his story was too much for one book to contain. And I’ve read this first one already, one book definitely wouldn’t have been enough!

If you’re new to Boyce (though I’m sure most of my readers have seen me raving about her for years), this may not be the best place to start. You can, but the significance of this character and what he becomes may be lost on you. I highly suggest starting with the Grimoire books. You can even find the first book, Lichgates, free everywhere (click that title a few words back).

Unlock the dark beginnings of Ourea’s most famous political players in this Grimoire Saga origins series.

Ourean legends of the First Vagabond have survived a thousand years, blossoming in pubs and alleys even as the great Bloods of Ourea tried to squelch his name. But the myths glorify the deeds and forget the man he was—Cedric, a boy from a small Hillsidian farming village.

As a young man, Cedric discovers a terrifying defect in his nature. He has no blood loyalty, which means he can defy his king—something that has never happened in recorded history. But what begins as a flaw evolves into a strength. Citizens begin to listen to Cedric, and he discovers that if he leads, others will follow.

But there’s a catch. The more who follow him, the more famous he becomes. And the more famous he becomes, the more targets he finds pinned to his back.

He’s a wanted man. A traitor. And as Cedric begins to embrace the title he’s been given — the Vagabond, the only man alive with no master — he ignites a revolution. After all, no one has defied a Blood and lived to tell the tale. No one, that is, but Cedric.
