Kormak: Stealer of Flesh Released

Just wanted to announce that Stealer of Flesh, the first Kormak novel– well, a collection of linked novelettes really, has been released. In a blatant effort to promote sales, the Kormak short story Guardian of the Dawn will be free until midnight Thursday as well.


To the world at large, he is a mercenary and assassin, a brutal killer with a deadly blade. In reality Kormak is a Guardian, one of a near-extinct order sworn to protect humanity from the servants of the gathering darkness.

The Ghul are the Stealers of Flesh, an ancient race of demons who possess the bodies of humans to work great evil. Now one of them has been freed from its ancient prison using Kormak’s own Dwarf-forged sword and  the Guardian must pursue it to a haunted city on the edge of the world.

Stealer of Flesh contains four-linked novelettes that tell the epic tale of Kormak’s hunt for a prince of demons. In it he encounters a conspiracy of demented mages, an army of werewolves, Orcish blademasters and a beautiful alchemist and her insane poet brother

Available now from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.

Guardian of the Dawn can be found at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.

  1. Amazon comes up with a page saying I cannot purchase this from the United States… Yours were the first fantastic books I ever read; I was really hoping to get this one!

    1. Sorry you’re having problems, Shawn. Not sure what is going on there. There are two links– one for the US and one for the UK and they both seem to work for me. I know that people in the US are buying the book because the purchases are showing up on my sales page. You could try going to Amazon.com directly and doing a search by title there in case there’s something corrupt about my link. If worst comes to worst there is a link to Smashwords, who sell everywhere, on the main Stealer of Flesh page on this site. Just click on the cover picture on the side of the page. Or click here. Hope that helps!

      1. This just in. Apparently Amazon had a massive computer glitch at some point today Shawn and a lot of books were affected. It’s possible you caught the backwash of this. Looks like I picked the wrong day to launch a book!

        1. Well maybe it’s still on the fritz then… it’s not letting me purchase any of your ebooks, and smashwords link says it’s not published any longer *sigh. I guess when I get home I’ll see if I can get it from Amazon UK—not sure but worth a try at least.

          1. Might be worth just leaving it until tomorrow, mate! It seems like they are having big problems over at Amazon today. I’m sure they’ll sort it out eventually! If its the Smashwords version of Guardian of the Dawn your looking for that won’t be up until Friday when it comes off Select.

  2. Amazon must have gotten the problem taken care of.I just bought Stealer of Flesh a few minutes ago.I can’t wait to read this. I read Guardian of the Dawn when it was published in Flashing Swords. Will you be writing any more Kormak stories?

    1. Glad it’s sorted, mate! I will be writing more Kormak books. I have in fact already written one and am now revising it. I hope to release it in either April or May. I am planning on doing a few more since I really like the character and his world. Hope you enjoy the book!

      1. Yeah, it was fixed sometime last night. I grabbed a couple, can’t wait to read them! Thanks for the amazing stories Mr. King, love your work!
