Publisher's summary

Four destinies collide in a unique fantasy world of war and wonders, where empire is won with enchanted steel and magical animal companions fight alongside their masters in battle.

Named one of the best books of the year by NPR, Tordotcom, and Kirkus Reviews.

A soldier with a curse

Tala lost her family to the empress' army and has spent her life avenging them in battle. But the empress' crimes don’t haunt her half as much as the crimes Tala has committed against the laws of magic...and against her own flesh and blood.

A prince with a debt

Jimuro has inherited the ashes of an empire. Now that the revolution has brought down his kingdom, he must depend on Tala to bring him home safe. But it was his army who murdered her family. Now Tala will be his redemption - or his downfall.

A detective with a grudge

Xiulan is an eccentric, pipe-smoking detective who can solve any mystery - but the biggest mystery of all is her true identity. She’s a princess in disguise, and she plans to secure her throne by presenting her father with the ultimate prize: the world’s most-wanted prince.

A thief with a broken heart

Lee is a small-time criminal who lives by only one law: Leave them before they leave you. But when Princess Xiulan asks her to be her partner in crime - and offers her a magical animal companion as a reward - she can’t say no, and she soon finds she doesn’t want to leave the princess behind.

This band of rogues and royals should all be enemies, but they unite for a common purpose: to defeat an unstoppable killer who defies the laws of magic. In this battle, they will forge unexpected bonds of friendship and love that will change their lives - and begin to change the world.

Critic reviews

"It’s only Paul Krueger’s second book and already he’s writing fantasy like a master. Steel Crow Saga is fun, funny, thrilling, heartbreaking, and, above all else, something only Krueger could’ve written." (Chuck Wendig, New York Times best-selling author of Wanderers)

"Inventive, action-packed, and set in an Asian-inspired world that feels both fresh and familiar: This is a book I’ve always wanted but never had until now." (S. Jae-Jones, New York Times best-selling author of Wintersong and Shadowsong)

"You’re going to love cheering for these characters as they fight for honor, love, family, and country. This world of steel and souls completely transported me. It’s a hexbolt to the heart." (Kevin Hearne, New York Times best-selling author of A Plague of Giants and the Iron Druid Chronicles)

"A rollicking adventure that wears its heart on its sleeve, and a joyful ode to its anime influences." (Emily Skrutskie, author of Hullmetal Girls)

"An incredible voice, an amazing conflict, and a hot mess of emotions.... Krueger has taken one earth-shattering step and a thousand stories will grow in his footprint." (Sam Sykes, author of Seven Blades in Black)
