"Cole weaves a fantasy world that feels comfortably familiar, then goes to places you’d never expect. You won’t stop turning pages until the stunning finish." —Peter V. Brett
Myke Cole, star of CBS's Hunted and author of the Shadow Ops series, debuts the Sacred Throne epic fantasy trilogy with The Armored Saint, a story of religious tyrants, arcane war-machines, and underground resistance that will enthrall epic fantasy readers of all ages.
In a world where any act of magic could open a portal to hell, the Order insures that no wizard will live to summon devils, and will kill as many innocent people as they must to prevent that greater horror. After witnessing a horrendous slaughter, the village girl Heloise opposes the Order, and risks bringing their wrath down on herself, her family, and her village.

The right book, the right time... and more to come
TheArmoredSaint is a thrilling book, magically forged in the moment it is needed most. Like all landmark fantasy/sci-fi it exposes the flayed nerves of the human condition while engaging your head, heart & soul. Heloise is the hero we’ve been waiting for. Thank you Myke Cole.
Armored Saint - literary appetizer; can’t wait for the next course.
Myke builds a beautiful world with complex and intriguing characters. The journey he takes us on through Heloise’s point of view is fascinating. Her personal journey, but also the one she guides us through he mythos underlying the magical system. I found myself frustrated by some characters’ dogma to the point of anger with them- I was completely engaged. Later to be even more shocked (no spoilers). Bottom line - Myke’s best work yet. Can’t wait for more.
So many words and so little action..
