Lord of Secrets: The Empty Gods #1

My debut novel, Lord of Secrets, is out now from Jo Fletcher Books.

Lord of Secrets Jacket Copy

Outlaw wizard Corcoran Gray has enough problems. He’s friendless, penniless and on the run from the tyrannical Mages’ Guild – and with the search for his imprisoned grandfather looking hopeless, his situation can’t get much worse.

So when a fugitive drops into his lap – literally – and gets them both arrested, it’s the last straw – until Gray realises that runaway slave Brix could be the key to his grandfather’s release. All he has to do is break out of prison, break into an ancient underground temple and avoid killing himself with his own magic in the process.

In theory, it’s simple enough. But as secrets unfold and loyalties shift, Gray discovers something with the power to change the nature of life and death itself.

Now Gray must find a way to protect the people he loves, but it could cost him everything, even his soul . . .

Lord of Secrets Short Blurb:

An action-packed fantasy featuring an anxious 26-year-old wizard trying to save the people he loves without destroying the world (or himself) in the process.

Where to Buy:

Lord of Secrets is available at most bookstores, or online here.


Critical Praise:


I loved it
! It surprised me many times . . . Gray is relatable, sympathetic, and wholly likeable, and the rest of the cast was endearing. And the magic! It was a perfect mix of traditional and new. A fascinating take, really. – Charlie N. Holmberg, author of The Paper Magician

Lord of Secrets is a fast-paced necromantic adventure. The characters are sharp, the dialogue is funny – and wow, Teintze can really write a monster! From the sadistic priest to the power-crazed wizard, from the delicate horrifying brilliance of her undead creations to the lurking, dreadful, beautiful monster at the heart of an ancient buried temple, I was alarmed and delighted at every turn – Emily Tesh, author of Silver in the Wood

Lord of Secrets is a delightful necromantic romp through a dark and complex world with magic as boundless as it is painful, terrifying undead monstrosities, and secrets layered upon secrets which are so craftfully peeled away just in time for a bone-rattling, conclusion that all I want is the next book, NOW – K. A. Doore, author of The Perfect Assassin

In a word: great! . . . A dazzling debut! – Life Has a Funny Way


Lady of Shadows, The Empty Gods #2

Coming in April, 2020, preorder now!

Lady of Shadows Jacket Copy:

Death is simple. Dreams are dangerous. Life is . . . unexpected.

Outlaw wizard Corcoran Gray expected death to be final, but life, and his loved ones, had other plans. A year after being resurrected and flung into a new body, he’s still trying to come to terms with his situation – and his self – when the all-powerful Mages’ Guild demands his help to stop a deadly plague.

He’s inclined to refuse the organisation that still wants him dead, until his partner Brix starts showing symptoms – to save her, Gray will do anything, even if it means working with his greatest enemies.

But it quickly becomes clear that this is no normal plague. The situation is more complicated, and more lethal, than anyone has realised. Ancient dangers are stirring, and thousands of lives are at stake .

Lady of Shadow Short Blurb:

A fast-paced adventure fantasy story about stopping a deadly plague and doing the right thing, even if you’re the wrong kind of person.
