Book Details

Enter the fray in this luminous new adventure from Christopher Buehlman, set during the war-torn, goblin-infested years just before The Blacktongue Thief.

The goblins have killed all of our horses and most of our men.

They have enslaved our cities, burned our fields, and still they wage war.

Now, our daughters take up arms.


Galva — Galvicha to her three brothers, two of whom the goblins will kill — has defied her family’s wishes and joined the army’s untested new unit, the Raven Knights. They march toward a once-beautiful city overrun by the goblin horde, accompanied by scores of giant war corvids. Made with the darkest magics, these fearsome black birds may hold the key to stopping the goblins in their war to make cattle of mankind.

The road to victory is bloody, and goblins are clever and merciless. The Raven Knights can take nothing for granted — not the bonds of family, nor the wisdom of their leaders, nor their own safety against the dangerous war birds at their side. But some hopes are worth any risk.

In The News

"Buehlman has a real gift for writing complicated, endearing characters trying to do their best in a complicated, fully lived-in world. I can’t wait for his next book."—Kelly Link, bestselling author of the Pulitzer Prize finalist Get in Trouble

“Christopher Buehlman’s worldbuilding is second-to-none, so grimly evocative it feels like the worst parts of history in the best possible way. Galva’s story is full of heartbreak and despair, but its darkness is balanced by exquisitely-crafted moments that explore the bonds of friendship, sisterhood, and love that endure despite the soul-shattering horrors of war.”—Nicholas Eames, author of Kings of the Wyld

“Beuhlman bursts through the confines of modern fantasy with a story by turns profane, brutal, beautiful, devastating. A work of towering imagination, twists of a razor-honed wit, Galva’s indelible voice, characters that move with undeniable authenticity to their fates—The Daughter’s War shows what fantasy can be in the hands of a master. Prepare yourself.”—John Hornor Jacobs, author of A Lush and Seething Hell

"The Daughters' War is so exactly what I want in a fantasy novel it almost feels as if Chris wrote it for me."—Christian Cameron, author of Killer of Men

“A masterful tale of war and loss. The Daughter's War is achingly beautiful, and once it has you in its grip, it will not let go until you turn that final page.”—Shauna Lawless, author of The Children of Gods and Fighting Men

Praise for The Blacktongue Thief:

“Dazzling. I heartily recommend this one.”—Robin Hobb, New York Times bestselling author of the Farseer Trilogy

“Chock-full of wry wit, foul language, and characters who arrive on the page with savage, sordid pasts hot on their heels. Often humorous, occasionally horrifying, and sometimes incredibly poignant, I love every single page of this book. Every sentence, even. It's that good.”—Nicholas Eames, author of Kings of the Wyld

“A delight from start to finish. Buehlman takes the well-worn tropes of fantasy and weaves them into a new and vibrant tapestry.”—Anthony Ryan, New York Times bestselling author of Blood Song

“Fast and fun and filled with crazy magic. I can't wait to see what Christopher Buehlman does next."—Brent Weeks, New York Times bestselling author of the Lightbringer series

“Hardly since The Lies of Locke Lamora have I been so impressed with a fantasy debut... The Blacktongue Thief is a bonafide instant classic, and I sure as hell can’t wait to see what Buehlman comes up with next.”—Grimdark Magazine
