Today we are beyond thrilled to take part in the cover reveal for Phil Williams‘ upcoming military fantasy epic titled “HOWEVER MANY MUST DIE“. This promises to be the start of something special and Phil promises a complete, self-contained story in book one of the Blood Scouts series.
“The series opens in the middle of the greatest conflict the world has seen: with technology and communications making international travel easier, vast empires have formed, and those empires are now clashing. Naturally, this takes inspiration from a World War One-style conflict, and shares many similarities with that era: the advent of poison gas, tanks, and automatic rifles. But all this alongside otherworldly creatures folded into the war effort: battlefields are rife with giants, winged monsters, halflings and spider-folk. To say nothing of the magic-wielders.”
“However Many Must Die follows a unique platoon of female soldiers. The Blood Scouts are a group of forty women who have been split across four rough squads, our focus is the girls of Boot Squad, and most particularly Wild Wish, a deadly sniper with a happy-go-lucky nature. She wants to end the war so she can take her new friends home to start a farm. She’s killed a lot of people to make that happen.”
“Expect personalities to clash, fights to be fought and new dangers to be exposed, as these once-ordinary people are thrown into ever more devastating situations and ever darker decisions. Expect a fast-paced, twisty and dark adventure.“
So checkout the magnificent cover below featuring the brilliant talents of Stefan Koidl:

Official Book Blurb: Wild Wish was trained to do one thing: kill.
Saved from a lonely backwater existence by a global war, Wish couldn’t believe her luck when she got into the Blood Scouts. Now she gets to share tents with an all-female platoon of night-stalking, giant-slaying, boat-sinking, battle-swaying legends in the making.
The problem is, they keep dying. And they’ve been given their worst assignment yet.
The enemy Dread Corps are combining magics deep within the nightmare lands of Low Slane, to unleash a weapon that could sway the entire war. It’s up to the Blood Scouts to stop them – with a journey that gets more dangerous with every step. Far behind enemy lines, death hangs in the air. Monsters lurk around every corner.
Are Wish’s skills – and positive attitude – enough to keep her Blood Scouts alive?
Or will the cost of survival finally break her?
