OUT NOW: The Witness For The Dead by Katherine Addison (UK)!

We’re incredibly excited that The Witness For The Dead by Katherine Addison is out now in the UK!

This brilliant, unique book is the follow up to the bestselling and award-winning first book in the series – The Goblin Emperor, and we’re so excited to take readers back into that world.

Murder, politics and intrigue.

When the young half-goblin emperor Maia sought to learn who had set the bombs that killed his father and half-brothers, he turned to an obscure resident of his Court, a Prelate of Ulis and a Witness for the Dead.

Thara Celehar found the truth, though it did him no good to discover it. Now he lives in the City of Amalo, far from the Court though not exactly in exile. He has not escaped from politics, but his position gives him the ability to serve the common people of the city, which is his preference.

 He lives modestly, but his decency and fundamental honestly will not permit him to live quietly.

“Impressively elaborate worldbuilding underpins this lovely fantasy novel, but I couldn’t put it down because of the heart-grippingly sympathetic main character.” ― Kate Elliott, bestselling author of the Crossroads series

“Challenging, invigorating, and unique. If courtly intrigue is your wine of choice, The Goblin Emperor is the headiest vintage I’ve come across in years.” ― Scott Lynch, bestselling author of The Lies of Locke Lamora

OUT NOW: The Angel of the Crows – Paperback!

We’re very excited to say that Katherine Addison’s completely brilliant The Angel of the Crows is now available in paperback!

After the success of the hardback back in September, we’re so pleased to be able to bring this fantastic book to even more UK readers in paperback.

This is not the story you think it is. 

These are not the characters you think they are.

This is not the book you are expecting.

London 1888. Angels inhabit every public building, and vampires and werewolves walk the streets with human beings in a well-regulated truce. A utopia, except for one thing: Angels can Fall, and that Fall is like a nuclear bomb in both the physical and metaphysical worlds.

Dr J. H. Doyle returns to London having been wounded in Afghanistan by a Fallen, and finds himself lodging in Baker Street with the enigmatic angel Crow. But living with a rogue angel is not so easy; the pair find themselves drawn into the supernatural and criminal worlds of London, from a man kidnapped by a vampire nest to Jack the Ripper’s horrific murders.

Besides Doyle’s nightmares, there is the lingering worry that Crow might Fall…

Each book Addison writes is a highly-polished and gorgeously set gem. The Angel of Crows is no exception.FRAN WILDE, Nebula-winning, Hugo and World Fantasy Nominated author of Updraft and The Fire Opal Mechanism

The Angel of the Crows is an entertaining ride–a compelling fantasy mystery set in an alternate but startlingly familiar Victorian London. You’ve been here before–not.” — Tim Powers

“This tale takes flight in ways that are dark and rich and wholly unexpected. Quite simply, I loved it.” — John Scalzi
