The multi-award-winning author of The House of Shattered Wings continues her Dominion of the Fallen saga as Paris endures the aftermath of a devastating arcane war . . .
Aliette de Bodard is ‘one of the most influential voices in fantasy today’, according to Starburst. A Franco-Vietnamese writer living in Paris, she’s the mother of two, qualified as an officer in the French military, is a very talented cook (http://aliettedebodard.com/recipes/) understands everything it’s possible to understand about Applied Maths and, in her day job, literally keeps the trains running for the Paris Metro.
That’s in addition to being an award-winning writer who has won:
· The Nebula Awards (twice)
· A Locus Award
· The British Science Fiction Award (three times – most recently for The House of Shattered Wings)
· Writers of the Future
· And she’s been a finalist for: The Hugo Awards, the Sturgeon Awards and the Tiptree Awards
We’ve published two novels with her already: The House of Shattered Wings (9,000 copies sold) and The House of Binding Thorns, both of which are highly acclaimed mysteries set in a world which merges and alternate Paris with powerful Vietnamese mythology and culture. In addition to the considerable strength of her storytelling and world, Aliette is a high profile author, a regular Guest of Honour at events and conventions, and recommended by booksellers in the same breath as Zen Cho, Naomi Novik, Cixin Liu and V. E. Schwab.
‘A superb blend of intrigue, mystery and magic and urban fantasy; it’s brilliantly written; and the story is gripping’ Civilian Reader
