As announced in BookBrunch this morning, we’re delighted to have acquired an amazing debut fantasy trilogy from Chinese-American writer Andrea Stewart. The first book in the series – BONE SHARD DAUGHTER – will publish in Autumn 2020.
BONE SHARD DAUGHTER is set in an empire of many islands, where bone shard magic fuels monstrous constructs that enforce law and order. Yet the emperor’s rule is failing and whispers of revolution carry from island to island. Lin is the emperor’s daughter and heir, and only she can save the empire and its people. But to do so, she must master the art of bone shard magic – and unlock the secrets of her own forgotten past.
With its brilliantly-realised magic system, inventive world-building and a cast of wonderful characters, there’s just so much to love about Andrea’s captivating debut – we can’t wait to share BONE SHARD DAUGHTER with you next year! In the meantime, be sure to follow Andrea on Twitter.
Orbit UK editor James Long – working in conjunction with Orbit US senior editor Brit Hvide – pre-empted world English rights from Juliet Mushens at Caskie Mushens in a significant six-figure deal.
