"Cole weaves a fantasy world that feels comfortably familiar, then goes to places you’d never expect. You won’t stop turning pages until the stunning finish." —Peter V. Brett

Myke Cole, star of CBS's Hunted and author of the Shadow Ops series, debuts the Sacred Throne epic fantasy trilogy with The Armored Saint, a story of religious tyrants, arcane war-machines, and underground resistance that will enthrall epic fantasy readers of all ages.

In a world where any act of magic could open a portal to hell, the Order insures that no wizard will live to summon devils, and will kill as many innocent people as they must to prevent that greater horror. After witnessing a horrendous slaughter, the village girl Heloise opposes the Order, and risks bringing their wrath down on herself, her family, and her village.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

About the author (2018)

After a career in the military, police and intelligence services, MYKE COLE tracks fugitives as part of the investigative team on CBS' new hit show "Hunted." Myke's three tours in Iraq inspired his military fantasy Shadow Ops series (Control Point, Fortress Frontier, Breach Zone). But the work hasn't separated Myke from his nerd roots. He's still a voracious fantasy reader who never misses his weekly game night. Myke's fandoms range from Star Wars to military history. He's a former Kendo champion and heavy weapons fighter in the Society for Creative Anachronism. At the D&D table, he always plays Paladins. Myke lives in Brooklyn, NY.
