Today, we’re thrilled to be taking part in the cover reveal for Aliette de Bodard’s upcoming sequel!

Publishing on the 12th October, A FIRE BORN OF EXILE is a beautiful exploration of the power of love, of revenge, and of the wounds of the past. This fast-paced, heart-warming space opera is set against a backdrop of corruption, power and political scheming in the far reaches of the award-winning Xuya universe.

Before we check out the gorgeous new cover, let’s hear more about the story itself:

The Scattered Pearls Belt is a string of habitats under tight military rule . . . where the powerful have become all too comfortable in their positions, and their corruption. But change is coming, with the arrival of Quynh: the mysterious and enigmatic Alchemist of Streams and Hills.

To Minh, daughter of the ruling prefect of the Belt , Quynh represents a chance for escape. To An, a destitute engineer, Quynh has a mysterious link to her own past . . . and holds a deeper, more sensual appeal. But Quynh has her own secret history, and a plan for the ruling class of the Belt. A plan that will tear open old wounds, shake the heavens, and may well consume her.

And now to the cover!



I am absolutely loving all the purple! The illustrator is Alyssa Winans, you can find her on Instagram as @alawinans and Twitter as @AlyssaWinans. Art direction was by Rachael Lancaster.
