Matthew Stover’s Caine’s Law has a new cover and blurb available on the Amazon website.  Caine’s Law will be the fourth book in the Acts of Caine. Without further ado, the Caine’s Law blurb:


From the moment Caine first appeared in the pages of Heroes Die, two things were clear. First, that Matthew Stover was one of the most gifted fantasy writers of his generation. And second, that Caine was a hero whose peers go by such names as Conan and Elric. Like them, Caine was something new: a civilized man who embraced savagery, an actor whose life was a lie, a force of destruction so potent that even gods thought twice about crossing him. Now Stover brings back his greatest creation for his most stunning performance yet.

Caine is washed up and hung out to dry, a crippled husk kept isolated and restrained by the studio that exploited him. Now they have dragged him back for one last deal. But Caine has other plans. Those plans take him back to Overworld, the alternate reality where gods are real and magic is the ultimate weapon. There, in a violent odyssey through time and space, Caine will face the demons of his past, find true love, and just possibly destroy the universe.

Hey, it’s a crappy job, but somebody’s got to do it.

According to Amazon, Caine’s Law will be released on April 3, 2012 while The Random House Spring 2012 Catalog puts Caine’s Law release date on February 2, 2012.  Roqoo Depot contacted Del Rey for an official date, but alas, they’re at Comic-Con!


Del Rey Editor Erich Schoeneweiss says: “The on sale date was indeed changed to April 3, 2012.”   Be sure to pick up your copy of Caine’s Law then!

  1. I will definitely be buying this. I’ve read the previous three books, and Caine Black Knife left off at a good point. Can’t wait to dive into another Stover novel.

  2. Matthew Stover is one of the best at what he does. If you’re looking for a memorable series that you can recommend to your friends, you’ve found it! DZ in TX
