Did you feel that? That was the earth shifting slightly on its axis as The Grim Company hits store shelves with the impact of a mile-wide meteor crashing into the ground...
At least if you happen to be in the UK or one of its Commonwealth cousins. If you're in North America, you probably just felt a slight twinge of jealously at those lucky bastards across the pond. But fear not - if you absolutely can't wait until September, you can still order the hardcover from amazon.co.uk or bookdepository.co.uk.
Everyone else can either pick up the aforementioned hardcover or else download the e-book for the scandalous price of £1.99 or the even more scandalous price of £1.71 on kindle.
To whet your appetite for the epic fantasy debut of the millennium, here are some snippets from the latest couple of reviews:
Luke Scull is more than good. He's the sort of author you buy on publishing date and read on the way home - 9/10
You can read the above review at thebookbag.co.uk.
I would never have guessed that this was a debut novel, it's got the feeling of a writer at the very top of his game, one that had been writing for years. The book manages to blend in all the things that make a good fantasy shine and it's easily on a par with any fantasy book I've read in the last year or two. - 5/5
That's the verdict of SFBook.com.
How shall I celebrate the release of my very first novel, a day whose significance will no doubt echo in the annals of time for years, decades to come?
Why, I'm going to have a cup of tea and read The Legend of Zelda: The Hyrule Historia...
