The Two Empires

By Jack K Burroughs

Action & adventure, Fantasy, Young adult | Paperback, eBook


For generations the Dianthic Empire has been locked in a cold war with the Krakenbaric Empire, its hated foe to the south. But now a new and far more dangerous threat arises with an invasion by the largest horde of orcs ever recorded. Caught up in this new conflict is Jag Garrick, an apprentice shoemaker. When his small town is destroyed by the orc horde, he embarks on what will prove to be an epic adventure that takes him from the streets of the city of Dianthus to the heart of the Krakenbaric Empire and beyond. Along the way he encounters dwarves, bards and revolutionaries - and with a secret cult seeking his death at every turn, he's going to need every ally he can find. The Two Empires is a thrilling introduction to a world of magic, warfare, politics and intrigue, combining fast-paced storytelling with an intricately detailed, inventive setting, and occasional humour.

Jack K Burroughs was born in 1990 in Bury St Edmunds, England. He studied Law at Downing College, Cambridge, and currently works in Cambridge as a trainee solicitor. Jack first started work on The Two Empires while still at school, on the basis that he liked to read but would like it even more if he got to decide what happened in the story. The first draft was completed over the course of several years, and since then has been rewritten again and again until Jack is finally happy with the text. Aside from reading and writing, Jack enjoys radio control car racing and (to his continual surprise) jogging. He used to do karate and fencing. He would like to be able to draw but has no talent for it, which is why you won't see any of his illustrations in The Two Empires.
