STORMBLOOD is a high stakes adrenaline filled adventure featuring two estranged brothers suddenly on opposite ends of an addict’s war. And it’s real damn good ― Nick Martell, author of THE KINGDOM OF LIARS

A captivating military sci-fi debut. Stormblood tells a splendid story about two brothers divided by war that is full of comradeship, actions, and conflict ― Novel Notions

A magnificent and explosive adrenaline-fest . . . Szal’s debut is an absolute must read for fans of gritty, action-packed, detective and military SF ― Grimdark Magazine

Stormblood feels like a superb combination of the actions in Red Rising Saga and the world-building of Mass Effect. Exciting, thought-provoking, and full of incredibly intense moments. Military sci-fi readers would be treating themselves well by putting Stormblood on their radar ― Novel Notions

This frenetic, grisly sucker-punch of a book manages to be everything you could want from sci-fi, while also carving out its own niche with a rusty slingshiv. ― Fantasy Book Review

Szal’s world is an insane, twisted place, and STORMBLOOD is one of the best scifi stories you’ll ever read ― Rob Boffard

Razor sharp and vicious, Stormblood is an adrenaline-driven vision of a dark future. Highly recommended! ― Michael R. Fletcher

Vakov Fukasawa is a former soldier, addicted to the biotech inside his own body that makes him constantly crave for action. And there is plenty of action in this fast moving novel, but not at the expense of ideas, or of humanity, or of vivid descriptions of Szal’s carefully imagined war-torn galaxy ― Chris Beckett

An intriguing mix of rich worldbuilding, meaty twists and ballistic ultraviolence ― SFX


And a reminder that the sequel, BLINDSPACE, will be published in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and in the EU on  November 25 2021.

It’s coming in Canada on  January 18 2022. It can be pre-ordered from these retailers:
