Gollancz, an imprint of the Orion Publishing Group, have announced the acquisition of UK and Commonwealth rights to HOUSE OF SHATTERED WINGS and its sequel by multi award-winning author, Aliette de Bodard. Compared to writers such as China Mieville and Iain M. Banks, HOUSE OF SHATTERED WINGS is set in Paris amongst the aftermath of the Great Magicians War.
Paris’s streets are lined with haunted ruins, Notre-Dame is a burnt-out shell and the Seine runs black with ashes and rubble. De Bodard’s rich storytelling brings three different voices together: a naive but powerful Fallen angel, an alchemist with a self-destructive addition, and a young man wielding spells from the Far East.
HOUSE OF SHATTERED WINGS will be published in hardback and eBook on the 20th of August 2015.
