Waiting on Wednesday

Elizabeth Bear is one of the most prolific, award-winning authors today - writing across genres whom sadly I haven't yet read. I have been yearning to get my hands on the World of the Eternal Sky series - a lush eastern-world fantasy. So when Tor announced a new book set in the same world, I knew this was high time!

The Stone in the Skull reads like a taut, tense thrilling fantasy set against the backdrop of cruel cold mountain slopes and features a brass-robot and a dead man fighting to stay alive and finish their mission. Intriguing, yes? Exotic, hell yes!  And the cover looks sooo beautiful!!

Book one in the Lotus Kingdoms trilogy, The Stone in the Skull publishes October 10th with Tor Books. From the catalog copy:

The Gage is a brass automaton created by a wizard of Messaline around the core of a human being. His wizard is long dead, and he works as a mercenary. He is carrying a message from a the most powerful sorcerer of Messaline to the Rajni of the Lotus Kingdom. With him is The Dead Man, a bitter survivor of the body guard of the deposed Uthman Caliphate, protecting the message and the Gage. They are friends, of a peculiar sort.

They are walking into a dynastic war between the rulers of the shattered bits of a once great Empire.
