Maurice Broaddus's King Maker is a novel that I think personifies the the Angry Robot list - it's a fresh and modern take on a well-trodden fantasy trope, delivered with energy, invention and daring and packing a punch that will excite those of us who feel we've seen it all before. in doing so, it also has every chance of capturing new readers who might otherwise be lost to pastimes that require a much shorter attention span! The irresistible tag line is "The Wire meets Exclaibur in this stunning fantasy from the dark streets of America" - now come on people, who could possibly not want to read this book???

"From the drug gangs of downtown Indianapolis, the one true king will arise. The King Arthur myth gets dramatically retold through the eyes of street hustler King, as he tries to unite the crack dealers, gangbangers and the monsters lurking within them to do the right thing.

Broaddus' debut is a stunning, edgy work, genuinely unlike anything you've ever read. "
