King’s Justice / Maurice Broaddus

“There are fewer greater pleasures in a reader’s life than witnessing a writer whose work they have enjoyed reached a new plateau in their storytelling skills, and such is the case here… Broaddus delivers in a voice that both whispers and roars and cannot be ignored.”

— Bram Stoker and International Horror Guild Award-winner Gary A. Braunbeck

King's JusticeThe Wire meets Excalibur


Spurred on by ever more urgent visions by his mystic advisor, Merle, King attempts to unite the warring gangs. But the

knights of Breton Court are assailed on all sides by greed, temptation and some very real monsters. But worse, there is

betrayal from within King’s innermost circle.

Praise and Reviews:

King’s Justice performs the impossible feat of improving on it’s predecessor, it’s simply an incredible work of compelling fiction and the closest most of us will ever get (if we are lucky) to living in a getto, pure genius.”


Praise for King Maker:

“Maurice Broaddus has an uncanny ability to capture the flavor of the streets. This is a wild, imaginative journey grounded in a gritty reality so compelling that you’ll swear these characters must live in your own city. Put this on your must-read list!”

- Brandon Massey, award-winning author of Cornered and Don’t Ever Tell

“Deft characterization, authentic dialogue, exciting plot. Add a highly original premise: The Arthurian Legend magically springing up in the ‘hood, including the return of the King, Merlin, the Knights of the Round Table, and even a dab of chivalry. Maurice Broaddus has definitely brought his A-game to this urban joust.”

– Gene O’Neill

“Maurice Broaddus’ writing creates a dangerous and authentic mood. The language is fierce and evokes the gritty realism of life on the streets. When the supernatural elements are introduced, they drift through the novel like smoke, leaving the reader gradually horrified as the end game is reached… For some, King Maker is going to be the best read of 2010.”


“King Maker is a fascinating novel, a true urban fantasy in the literal definition of the term, and with assured prose and strong characters, should be on every SF fan’s shelf.”

- Adam Christopher

“I maintain that this is one of the most original and compelling modern fantasy series I’ve read.”

- Nicholas Kaufmann’s Journal
