Solaris is delighted to announce that it has acquired the follow-up to the much anticipated debut novel from Lou Morgan,Â Blood and Feathers, which is to be released in August of this year.
The sequel,Â Rebellion, is due to be released in August 2013.
RebellionÂ will continue in Morganâ€™s fresh post-Milton world of gun-toting angels, demonic plots, and a heroine whose life is torn apart in the battle between heaven and hell!
Blood and FeathersÂ is already garnering attention and praise from across the industry, with Sarah Pinborough describing it as â€œdark, enticing and so sharp the pages could cut you,Â Blood and FeathersÂ is a must-read for any fan of the genre”, while Philip K Dick award-winner Michael Marshall Smith said it was “a hell of a ride, but heaven to read: eerie, compelling and very funnyâ€.
â€œWhen you discover a debut author of such strength and range, as I did with Lou, itâ€™s always a great privilege to bring them to the wider world,â€ said Jonathan Oliver, editor-in-chief of Solaris. â€œBlood and FeathersÂ is a brilliantly original novel, that is both affecting and witty.Â Rebellion promises to raise the bar even higher.â€
