Welcome to the cover for Steph Swainston’s FAIR REBEL, which follows on from Steph’s incredible and breath-taking Castle omnibus. We have been so excited for this sequel because the inimitable Jant is back. FAIR REBEL will hugely satisfy all those of you needing a Jant fix – and if you’re new to the narcissistic, wickedly humorous wonder that is Jant, you’re in for a total treat. Steph’s writing is wonderfully unique and FAIR REBEL will transport you to the visceral and intense world of the Fourlands and fill you with awe.
But don’t just take our word for it:
‘Embossed with flawless, deep characterisation… There’s joy to discover on every page.’ SFX
‘Her writing is as elegantly superior to most other fantasy as a samurai sword is to a flint dagger.’ RICHARD MORGAN
‘Swainston writes with dash and elegance.’ THE TIMES
Can the Fourlands ever win their war?:
Fifteen years after the last devastating Insect attack, the immortal Circle is finally ready to launch an offensive against their implacable enemies. This time they have a new weapon – gunpowder. Hopes are high.
But the Circle’s plans are threatened when the vital barrels of gunpowder go missing. Jant, the Circle’s winged messenger, is tasked to investigate. Soon it becomes clear that the theft is part of a deadly conspiracy . . . and Jant and his friends are among the targets.
As tensions rise, Jant races to foil the conspirators. Can he expose them in time – or will the crisis blow the Fourlands apart?
FAIR REBEL is available for pre-order now and will be released November 24th 2016.
