Justice is Out in Australia

As of today (Sept 24) Justice, Book 3 of my epic fantasy trilogy The Tainted Realm, is in the bookshops in Australia and New Zealand. It’s been chosen as a group purchase by both Dymocks (70 bookshops) and Leading Edge (198 independent bookshops), so it should be reasonably easy to find.

But if you can’t find Justice in your local bookshop,  the Australian online bookstores have it for immediate delivery, eg Fishpond and Booktopia. It’s also available (Aust and NZ customers only) as an ebook from the usual etailers, such as  the Apple iTunes store, Kobo, JB Hi-Fi, Sony, Samsung and Amazon.

The audiobook will be out in a month, ie at the end of October.

You can read the first couple of chapters here, and I’ve popped the blurb in below the cover image.

The once beautiful land of Hightspall is being carved up by warring armies led by figures out of legend. One army is headed by the charismatic brute Axil Grandys, and the other by Lyf, resurrected sorcerer-king and Grandys’ ancient nemesis.

Only the escaped slave Tali and her unreliable magic stand in their way – but Tali’s gift grows more painful every time she uses it. As the armies converge on the fateful peak of Touchstone, Tali and her ally Rix must find a way to overcome Lyf and prevent Grandys from using the Three Spells that will destroy Hightspall forever.

Justice is the shattering finale to Ian Irvine’s fantasy epic the Tainted Realm trilogy.

Praise for The Tainted Realm trilogy:

‘Incredibly exciting. The end will have you eagerly anticipating the next book in the series.’

‘A compelling story of vengeance, loyalty and the search for a place in the world.’
– Starred review, LIBRARY JOURNAL (USA) 

‘Credible, flawed characters, splendidly nasty baddies and a richly interwoven story. Great stuff!’

Happy reading!
