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
