Book 5 of The Chronicles of the Black Gate now has its own book page here on GR. I'll be posting updates in my review section there frequently, so head on over if you want to see how it's progressing!



Thanks for visiting my page! I'm Phil Tucker, a Brazilian/Brit who currently resides in Asheville, NC, where I resist the siren call of the forests and mountains to sit inside and hammer away on my laptop. I'm currently working on the epic fantasy series, The Chronicles of the Black Gate which I launched in May 2016 and hope to finish this year. I'm thrilled with how well the series has been received, and here's a little bit more about my books:

"Full review is here, on my blog!

This book begins right where The Empire of the Dead left off. Right in the middle of the action, as it happens. This is both good (because action is awesome) and bad (for me – because it’s been a year since I read E..." Read more of this review »

Phil Tucker is on page 123 of 672 of Trial by Battle: Looks like my last update didn't save, which curbs my enthusiasm tonight for another word entry. Suffice to say that chapter 4 sees the fruition of the dastardly evil Mortimer and Isabella's plot to steal the English throne from Edward 2, only to lose it for years later to Edward's cadre of loyal knights. Incredibly cinematic!

“The wheel of fortune lifts us up and brings us down. You must free your happiness from its vagaries. Expect nothing, and everything is a gift.”
Phil Tucker, The Path of Flames

“Hannus' face was clear of concern, unriven by the cruel lines wrought by grief and loss. A young face. A blank sheet on which time would write its woes.”
Phil Tucker, The Black Shriving

“No," said Asho, his voice hollow. "I remember now. Something the demon said. This time 'round, he's not returning to the Black Gate when he's done cleansing the Hold. He's going to keep on. He said he would sweep out across the land and drown everything in flame and shadow." "Well, fuck," said Brocuff. He stood again, and this time he did stalk off. Ser”
