The Blades

Josef Black's debut thriller in THE BLADES Series is an action-packed adventure fans of the genre won't want to miss. Step into the boots of an elite British Special Air Service (SAS) tier-one operator and experience the highs, lows and danger of operating in the most extreme combat situations faced in the modern military.

1998, Danny ‘Feathers’ Archer has just passed the notoriously gruelling British S.A.S Selection. Having undergone 9 months of tier-one special forces' training he is assigned to an elite SAS Sabre Squadron - Bravo Squadron Seven Troop.

The Blades follows Archer & Seven Troop through 4 years of operations across multiple global theatres from Sarajevo to Colombia, Sierra Leone to London, Paris to Las Vegas.

Archer’s journey takes him on S.A.S operations against Serbian War Criminals, the IRA & Colombian FARC, Sierra Leone's Rebels: The West Side Boys, and Al-Qaeda.

Written in a terse and gritty contemporary style based on historical real-world operations, British forces humour and camaraderie, THE BLADES is a thrilling and realistic blend of espionage & special forces action as The Blades live up to 22 Regiment’s motto: WHO DARES WINS.
