Tor Books is excited to announce the release of 'CHASERS OF THE WIND', the first book in a new series from the internationally bestselling author Alexey Pehov.

And the book is getting released today, that is on the 17th June, 2014.

About the book - 
After years of reassembling the Empire after the War of the Necromancers, disaster strikes again when the Nabatorians join forces with the necromancers of Sdis to take over the Empire, one city at the time. Luk, a soldier who narrowly escapes the pillaging of the city when his place at the Gates of the Six Tower is attacked, and Ga-Nor, a northern Barbarian, flee the advances of the Nabatorian hordes together, finding safety in numbers. They encounter a married couple and Harold, the hero of the Chronicles of Siala, and the five set forth to escape and find peace within the Empire. The mysterious married duo, Grey and Layan, were once part of a secret assassin group until they took one job too far and now have a price on their head in the seedy underworld of the Empire. Unfortunately,on their way to safety, the group has made a powerful enemy in Tia, a dark sorceress and one of the Damned. Instead of submitting to Tia’s will, the rag tag band attempts to kill her and ends up separating her from her mortal body, leaving her spirit to follow them, intent on revenge.

As Tia pursues the unlikely group, they encounter hordes of the undead and hidden magical talents, only to realize that the battles have begun to spread and nowhere is safe. Eventually, Grey and Layan, with the help of their new found allies, discover that they may be the only ones who can defeat The Damned and save the Empire.

CHASERS OF THE WIND starts out in a whirlwind of fast paced battles and high intensity characters and continues this speed until the last gut wrenching pages of the book. The reader finds themselves drawn into a magical world where anything is possible, from villages murdered then brought back to life, to creatures who hover above the ground. This adrenaline filled novel starts with a bang and will keep readers eagerly awaiting the next book.
