Orbit publish In Ashes Lie, the new novel from Marie Brennan, her follow-up to Midnight Never Come, which was described as a "... breathtaking novel of intrigue and betrayal set in Elizabethan England,". This new novel moves the timeline to 1666 and The Great Fire.
Further information on both Brennan and her forthcoming novel can be found on the author's web site - and I should add that the information Brennan offers up there, for there - background, soundtrack listings, photos from her research trips excerpts, journals - is an abject lesson in how to get people interested in one's work. Top stuff!
"September, 1666 - The mortal civil war is over. But the war among the fae is still raging, and London is its battleground. There are forces that despise the Onyx Court, and will do anything to destroy it. But now a greater threat has come, one that could destroy everything. In the house of a sleeping baker, a spark leaps free of the oven - and ignites a blaze that will burn London to the ground. For three harrowing days, the mortals and fae of the city will fight to save their home. While the humans struggle to halt the conflagration that is devouring London street by street, the fae pit themselves against a less tangible foe: the spirit of the fire itself, powerful enough to annihilate everything in its path. Neither side can win on its own - but can they find a way to fight together?"
