Den Patrick is originally from Dorset and lives in London. His first three books for Gollancz, the War Fighting Manuals, were released in the autumn of 2013.
The Boy with the Porcelain Blade was nominated for the British Fantasy Newcomer award and forms the first book in the The Erebus Sequence. The Boy Who Wept Blood and The Girl on the Liar's Throne complete this trilogy of Gothic Fantasy books, described by Jen Williams as "Gormenghast meets the X-men".

2018 sees the start of a new series, The Ashen Torment, which kicks off with Witchsign on May 24th, a crossover Fantasy set in a Nordic and Russian inspired world of forbidden magic and imperial tyranny.

I believe it was Audible, Amazon's audio book company who bought the audio rights to The Erebus Sequence. The Boy Who Wept Blood was released in 2015 so my guess is at this point that they decided not to continue with the series in this format or they would have done so by now. Sorry for the disappointment.

"As always, the honesty post: I received this book free as an Advance Reading Copy from the publisher. I haven't met Den Patrick.

I just really liked this book.
I felt like Den Patrick's only agenda was to tell a really good story, and he did it well. H" Read more of this review »

“Ah, the young! Always so convinced their problems are unique in nature and unique to themselves.”
Den Patrick, The Boy with the Porcelain Blade

“Lucien had intimated that the king was an unholy creation; it stood to reason that he would create others in his image. Wasn't she one of the king's own experiments, evidence of his playing god?”

“- I though you wanted war?
- There was a time I'd have greeted the end of the world with open arms - the Herald sound desolate - Now I just want to go home.”
