Rise of the Falsemarked, the second Spies of Dragon and Chalk adventure, combines elements of Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels and crime noir into a thrilling world of epic fantasy. 

Mixing spy craft, dragons, and good writing, Samuel Gately certainly won me over. – The Fantasy Book Critic Blog

Gately never disappoints. Rise of the Falsemarked sprinkles espionage into fantasy as we join our heroes on a dangerous but thrilling adventure in a world at once familiar and also beautifully and comprehensively conceived. The author has a gift for creating a place accessible and yet completely unpredictable and fantastical. His characters are at once layered with flaws and remarkably irrepressible. This book is highly recommended. – Amazon Reviewer
