Epics Still Rule
THE TRAITOR BARU CORMORANT by Seth Dickinson
On sale Sept. 15, 2015
A heart-wrenching political fantasy debut about power, colonialism, and being different. It already has two starred reviews:
“Dickinson’s debut, the start of a trilogy set in an impressively well-crafted fantasy world, is assured and impressive. He combines social engineering, economic trickery, and coldhearted pseudoscientific theories to weave a compelling, utterly surprising narrative that keeps readers guessing until the end.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
“This is an accomplished debut, with a heroine whose motives are murky, seemingly even to herself. The twists and turns our unreliable narrator takes as she pushes the Aurdwynn nobles to rebel reveal her goals yet also expose her loneliness. We’ve only seen a fraction of the world of the Masquerade and a glimpse of Baru’s plans, setting the stage for a compelling series.” — Library Journal, starred review
