A thoughtful, literary novel about conflict, identity and community, from one of the most exciting voices in speculative fiction.

This is a place where we can be alone, together.

The Western Protectorate does not welcome visitors.

When humans first went through the ‘Kissing Gate’ to the planet Qita, the protectorate turned its back on modern civilization to live in rural isolation.

Now the war on Qita is over, for veteran Jem and her Qitan partner Isley, it’s a peaceful place to escape ugly memories.

But their peace is disturbed when a visitor comes to Skyward Inn, bringing reminders of an unnerving past and triggering an uncertain future.

Skyward Inn is out from Solaris in hardback and eBook 18 March 2021, and in audio from Penguin Random House Audio.
