Witch King

By Martha Wells
Witch King by Martha Wells digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Nominated for the 2023 Nebula Award for Best Novel

From the breakout SFF superstar author of Murderbot comes a remarkable story of power and friendship, of trust and betrayal, and of the families we choose.

"I didn't know you were a... demon."
"You idiot. I'm the demon."
Kai's having a long day in Martha Wells' WITCH KING....

After being murdered, his consciousness dormant and unaware of the passing of time while confined in an elaborate water trap, Kai wakes to find a lesser mage attempting to harness Kai’s magic to his own advantage. That was never going to go well.

But why was Kai imprisoned in the first place? What has changed in the world since his assassination? And why does the Rising World Coalition appear to be growing in influence?

Kai will need to pull his allies close and draw on all his pain magic if he is to answer even the least of these questions.

He’s not going to like the answers.

WITCH KING is Martha Wells’s first new fantasy in over a decade, drawing together her signature ability to create characters we adore and identify with, alongside breathtaking action and adventure, and the wit and charm we’ve come to expect from one of the leading writers of her generation.

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

“In this dual timeline story, we meet Kai. He is a demon witch that can suck the life out of others and inhabit bodies. It our past timeline we meet him leading up to being trapped in an underwater contraption. In our current timeline, Kai has woken up to a rebellion that may hold some of the secrets he needs to figure out who killed him and trapped him. I loved this book. It was a lot to keep up with, but if you just go with it you are in for a hell of a ride! The only thing was there were so many characters that would have loved to get to know more!”
