BOOKS-steelvictoryRDSP signs the sequel to STEEL VICTORY

Raw Dog Screaming Press is pleased to announce we have signed a deal to release the sequel to J.L. Gribble’s debut novel Steel Victory. Book 2 of the Steel Empires urban fantasy/alternate history series, Steel Magic, will be released in 2016 under our imprint Dog Star Books.

In Steel Magic, warrior-mages Toria and Kane are finally ready to begin their mercenary careers and debating between monster hunting and cushy bodyguard jobs. Instead, they are hired to investigate a much more serious problem—the world’s mages are disappearing. But when a friend is kidnapped, they’ll have to travel across the globe to save her, save themselves, and save magic itself.
