Hello Fellow Readers,

It’s the last stop of the tour for Pariah’s Lament by Richie Billing, hosted by Random Things Tours.

To round off the tour, I am hosting a giveaway of 1 x copy of Pariah’s Lament, open to UK residents only.


“So often it’s the forgotten who possess the power to change the world.”

When an attempt is made on the life of Ashara, Keeper of Yurr, his young, hapless advisor Edvar must uncover and stop those behind it. With enemies in the capital city and the belligerent Tesh, Keeper of neighbouring kingdom Karrabar stirring trouble in the Borderlands, can Edvar hold together Ashara’s brittle reign?

The troubles ripple throughout Yurr, affecting an ancient race of people known as the Amast, who in their time of utmost need, turn to pariah Isy for salvation. Rejected by society, kith and kin, can Isy guide the Amast to safety during the greatest turmoil Yurr has known since the War of the Damned?

An epic underdog’s story, Pariah’s Lament delivers action, adventure, romance and original fantasy. Fans of Joe Abercrombie and George RR Martin will appreciate the gritty realism and vivid battle scenes of Pariah’s Lament, yet at times it possesses a humorous touch akin to the works of James Barclay and Nicholas Eames. 

And for those who adore the charismatic characters of Brandon Sanderson and Patrick Rothfuss, you’ll find a cast that will whisk you away on a journey of discovery, intrigue, friendship and love.
