We’ve acquired two more novels by Lila Bowen, author of WAKE OF VULTURES (US | UK | ANZ). As you know, Wake of Vultures has had a ton of praise — and we’re excited to have a new series look coming this fall.
The new novels will both star Nettie Lonesome, or Rhett which is the name he goes by now. And they’re going to knock your socks off. Don’t believe me?
Check out these reviews!
“A warm-hearted winner.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Absorbing.” — Kirkus (starred review)
“Awesome.” — B&N.com
“But if one of the things you enjoy about reading fantasy is getting to see different worlds, strange magics, and unique characters, and… well… just generally having new experiences in general. Then yeah. Then you owe it to yourself to read this. Because I’m willing to bet, just like me, you’ve never seen anything like it before….”
— Patrick Rothfuss
A gorgeous cover for a lovely book. I'm proud to be one of the quotes on there… https://t.co/uWGlkdSeFc

“WAKE OF VULTURES is, quite simply, brilliant. A mind-bending mix of history, fantasy and folklore, it’s a wild bronco of a read that’ll leave you breathless for more.”
— Rachel Caine
“Nettie Lonesome is a complex, tough, all-around wonderful protagonist. And Lila Bowen is equally wonderful for bringing us Nettie’s story, set in a magical old west full of harpies and monster-hunters and stolen children and more. I look forward to more of Nettie’s journey.”
— Jim C. Hines
“I don’t care what else you’ve seen in the bookstore today. Buy this book because it’s the thrilling, delightfully written, and important one you’ve always wanted to read.”
— Kevin Hearne
“WAKE OF VULTURES doesn’t just fly — it soars. Delilah S. Dawson brings in a wild fantasy quite unlike anything I’ve ever read, with a voice that’s weird and wonderful. Dawson is truly a talent to watch. Hot damn, is this book good.”
— Chuck Wendig
Really, I adored WAKE OF VULTURES so hard. It's really something different, something exciting, something dark and magical.

“Sharp as a silver Bowie and unsentimental as a stray bullet, Lila Bowen’s Nettie Lonesome earns a place among the legends of the Weird West.”
“Wake of Vultures is a ferocious, fascinating take on the magical Old West – creatively and unsentimentally grim, yet rich with hope and heart.”
— Cherie Priest
This is an amazing book with an amazing new paperback cover and I would know because I got to blurb the original :) https://t.co/tMVLntRDmS

“Nettie Lonesome kicks major ass. There is something strange and wonderful going on in Lila Bowen’s head. It’s the weird west fantasy that I never knew I’ve always wanted to read. Now I need more!”
