Chorus & the Ring by James Peaty and Mike Collins. It’s a formidable line-up of zarjazness with which to enter April, but as ever

It is five years after the Last-of-All-War, when the Monarchy succeeded in defeating the Malign Lord. With their leader dead, his minions are scattered, fleeing retribution from the Wretchfinders.
